Player's Perspective

If we rounded up a bunch of professional musicians and had them spec out dream axes, their designs would probably resemble Fender's Hot Rod series instruments. This 70's Jazz Bass combines old-school soul with modern playability, creating a player's paradise. The sound is warm and rich - very much the type of sound that provides great tone without catering too heavily toward one style or another. It can do funk, rock and soul just as well as it can do jazz and blues. The neck is comfortable whether you're slapping like crazy or walking over changes. Perfect for recording and frequent gigging, this bass is the perfect blend of old and new.

Item Details

This American Vintage Hot Rod 70's Jazz Bass sports an alder body with a candy apple red finish. The maple neck has a smooth and easy playing satin lacquer finish. It's a "U" shape with a rosewood fretboard, 20 medium jumbo frets and a 7.25" to 12" compound radius. For pickups, you'll find an American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass single coil in the bridge and a '63 Precision Bass split single coil in the middle. It's the perfect combination for that rich, organic bass sound that records easily and works in a variety of musical settings. Each pickup has its own volume control, so you can dial in as much of each as you like. Other features include a 4-saddle Fender hi-mass bridge, 3-ply white pickguard, and Fender "F" vintage-paddle tuners.
