What we say:

Fender’s new range for 2018 is the American Original Series. Replacing the previous American Vintage models, these guitars are all based on decade-specific eras, reflecting the best and most loved attributes from the 50s, 60s and 70s. These USA made models all share certain attributes like modern 9.5” radius fretboards and the same ‘vintage tall’ fretwire plus they all have the all-important nitrocellulose lacquer, a thinner skin finish that ages more beautifully and resonates better as the guitar is used and the wood vibrates. This new series is a total slam-dunk for Fender: some of their coolest, most iconic instruments with the features that everybody wants and asks for!

Both of Fenders significant bass designs are the most imitated in the industry: The Precision Bass and the Jazz bass together form an almost complete picture of what an electric bass guitar is. Whilst the P-Bass is strident and singular, the Jazz bass is smooth and versatile. This design can cover so much ground, it’s often the only bass a player needs for a career’s worth of playing.

This American Original 60s Jazz Bass (there were no Jazz basses in the 50s!) honours the time-established design of the originals with its offset body shape, twin single coil pickups and narrow neck. The neck is a big part of the charm with the Jazz bass: the slim profile and narrow width lets you have very easy access to any position and thusly promotes technical and complicated playing.

The two single coil pickups are Pure Vintage ’64 models, developed to give a smooth sound with lots of clarity. Each pickup has an individual volume knob to allow you to balance the output of each pickup to your preference.

The offset body is made from Alder and finished in Candy Apple Red which looks beautiful. This bass is an instrument that can tackle any genre with tone, taste and authority.
