TRADITIONAL '60S JAZZ BASS + LEFTY

Modeled after the ‘62 Jazz Bass, the Fender MIJ Traditional 60s Jazz Bass is built using a high-quality basswood body designed to produce the same rich mids and defined low end as the original, while leaving enough room in the budget to add a premium rosewood fingerboard without pushing up the price. Throw on a Flamingo Pink finish only available in Japan and SE Asian markets and it’s just too hard to resist.

'60S FRETLESS JAZZ BASS & '70S JAZZ BASS

The Fender MIJ Traditional 60s Jazz Bass Fretless is an absolute wonder. This period-inspired fretless Jazz Bass is available in two timeless finishes and built with an alder body and reverse winding tuning machines, yet with enough room left in the budget to add a premium rosewood fingerboard without pushing up the price to offer unmistakable Fender soul and limitless tonal possibilities at an unprecedented value.

Modeled after the ‘75 Jazz Bass, the Fender MIJ Traditional 70s Jazz Bass is built using an ash body and vintage-inspired pickups designed to produce the same rich mids and defined low end as the original, while leaving enough room in the budget to add a bound maple neck with block inlays without pushing up the price. Throw on a California Blue finish only available in Japan and SE Asian markets and it’s just too hard to resist.

TRADITIONAL '60S TELECASTER CUSTOM LEFTY & '70S THINLINE TELECASTER

Modeled after the ‘62 Tele Custom, the Fender MIJ Traditional 60s Telecaster Custom is built using a double-bound alder body that is thinner than your average Tele, and alnico-magnet pickups and a spiral-saddled bridge designed to produce the same illustrious tone as the original while leaving enough room in the budget to add a solid rosewood fingerboard without pushing up the price. (This guitar is LEFT-HANDED.)

The Fender MIJ Traditional 70s Telecaster Thinline is built using a timeless single-f-hole, semi-hollow body and dual wide-ranging humbucking pickups designed to produce the versatile array of tones you expect from a workhorse tele, as well as some you don’t. Throw on a solid maple neck and a Flaming Pink finish only available in Japan and SE Asian markets and it’s just too hard to resist.

TRADITIONAL '60S & '70S MUSTANG

Modeled after the extra-hot ‘65 Mustangs, the Fender MIJ Traditional 60s Mustang is built to virtually the same specs, like the decal with patent number, aged button “F” tuners, period-correct plastics, grey fiber-bottom alnico magnet pole piece, and a vintage-style tremolo, all with enough wiggle room left to add a solid rosewood fingerboard. It’s slick. It’s small-scale. And it’s the spitting image of where it all started.

The Fender MIJ Traditional 70s Mustang is a perfect recreation of the timeless, small-scale favorite, beloved just as much for it’s compact size and lightweight body as it is for its alnico pickups and fat, round low end. Throw on a solid maple neck and a Flaming Pink finish only available in Japan and SE Asian markets and it’s just too hard to resist.
