About Fender Vintera Jazz Bass

The Fender Vintera Jazz Bass is a celebration of one of the most iconic electric basses of all time. Now more than 60 years old, the Fender Jazz Bass has been played on countless albums by the likes of Jaco Pastorius, Marcus Miller, Noel Redding and Flea.

There are three types of Fender Vintera Jazz Bass, each modelled after a particular era: the 60s Vintera Jazz Bass, the 70s Vintera Jazz Bass and the 60th Anniversary Road Worn Edition. The first difference you’ll notice is the necks and fingerboards. The 60s neck is thinner and has dot inlays, the 70s neck is chunkier and has block inlays and a bound fingerboard. They also have different period-correct logos and tuners to really capture the vintage spirit in detail. Not only do they look the part, they sound exactly as you’d hope: full of the vintage snarl and growl.

The Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960, so in 2020 Fender released the 60th Anniversary Road Worn Vintera Jazz Bass. This bass sports a worn nitrocellulose finish for that authentic old-school feel.
