Beautiful Custom Built Time Machine 1962 Jazz Bass in Sherwood Green.

This bass guitar, also called the J-Bass, was launched in 1960 as Fender's new "deluxe" bass model. The Jazz Bass was characterized by its slim offset body, a particularly narrow and comfortable neck and so-called dual concentric "stacked" control pots with which a wide range of usable and particularly beautiful bass sounds could be produced. The Jazz Bass became an immediate success, and this beautiful instrument has become an indispensable part of the modern music world.

To mark this milestone in both Fender history and general bass guitar history, the Fender Custom Shop is launching this Time Machine 1960 Jazz Bass Heavy Relic. This breathtaking replica embodies the soul and character of the original, while also offering a number of upgrades that will delight many bass players. The Heavy Relic finish of the two-piece alder body is completely period correct and feels like a played-in copy from 1960. The quartersawn maple neck is incredibly comfortable, partly thanks to the 1.5" nut width and the 60s "U" neck profile. is unlacquered, which gives you great playability at all times, even under the hottest conditions. The 9.5" radius of the fingerboard completes the picture. The two hand-wound Custom Shop vintage Jazz Bass pickups sound great and offer the same versatility that the original has become so known and loved for. And then that 4-ply brown shell pickguard... What a picture! Of course including deluxe hardshell case, strap and COA
