Fender American Original ‘60s Jazz Bass RW 3-Color Sunburst w/Hardshell Case
The Fender American Original ‘60s Jazz Bass commemorates the release of the 1960 original by featuring the same slim “’60s C” neck shape and single-coil pickups that made it so special, while updating the fretboard radius for modern playability.
About Fender American Original Series:
Founded by Leo Fender in 1938 as Fender’s Radio Service, what is now the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation began making electric guitars and amplifiers in 1945. The rest, as they say, is history. Creator of the world’s first mass-produced, and by far most popular, solid-bodied electric, Fender is now the world’s leading guitar manufacturer.
Picking up where the celebrated American Vintage Series left off, the Fender American Original Series features re-imagined, “best-of-the-decade” versions of some of the most legendary model years of the Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, and Jazz and Precision basses, updated for modern playability.
