The classic Fender funkster is back!
The Fender '70s Jazz Bass captures the essence of the decade with striking cosmetics and a bright, full sound. The original '70s Jazz Bass had a repositioned bridge pickup-moved closer to the bridge-and the flashier look of big block inlays, neck binding, and bullet truss rod. The offset waist and ultra-slim neck make the '70 Jazz Bass more comfortable to play.
Vintage-style alnico magnet Jazz Bass single-coil pickups make this Fender bass sound like its forebears. The originals were widely regarded as the best funk basses of all time, and this new Fender reissue makes a great '70s classic bass guitar available to today's bassists.

Comments about Fender '70s Jazz Bass:
I bought this 70's Sunburst Jazz Bass to take the Place of my expensive Original 1966 Fender Jazz Bass that I did not want to take a chance of gigging with and to my Surprise it played very well without any changes but I added a Tortise Shell Pick Guard, Chrome pickup covers and put a Scroll F Neck Plate in place of the Plain one. I also changed the Strings to the Flat wound Stainless Strings and now it is a Bass Players Dream Bass and I enjoy Playing it as much as my 1966. You can't go wrong with this Bass even though it is made in Mexico. It looks and Plays GREAT and just as good as a more expensive Bass. I am Very happy with it and glad I had a chance to get a good deal on it.
