Fender Jazz Bass Guitars

Fender Jazz Bass Guitars

First released in 1960 as the "Deluxe" model, the Fender Jazz Bass was Leo Fender's second electric bass model. The design took elements from the Fender Jazzmaster guitar, including the offset body shape, which was thought to be more ergonomic and more comfortable to play. The Jazz Bass also featured a slimmer, narrower neck profile which was originally designed with Jazz musicians in mind, hence the name!
