Fender American Original 70S Jazz Bass MN Natural

$2,099.00

Overview

The Fender Jazz Bass seemed perfectly matched to the players of the 1970s — fast, flashy and cutting. From concert stages to recording studios, the J-Bass was at the forefront of bass exploration. Fender's American Original '70s Jazz Bass brings back that sound and vibe, and a modern fingerboard radius for easier playing. With  vintage tall frets for snappy slapping, period-correct pickups and vintage-style hardware, you'll find your funky groove with this beautiful bass.
