Here's what Fender say about the 75th Anniversary Jazz Bass:
In 1946 Clarence Leonidas “Leo” Fender created Fender Electric Instrument Company and changed the trajectory of modern music forever. The 75th Anniversary Series celebrates Leo’s bold, revolutionary designs with special versions of the Stratocaster®, Telecaster®, Precision Bass® and Jazz Bass®. Featuring unique finishes, premium pickups and remarkably comfortable necks, these instruments honor the timeless Fender designs that reshaped music.
The 75th Anniversary Jazz Bass is finished in a striking Diamond Anniversary finish with a matching painted headstock. The maple neck features a “Modern C” profile, medium jumbo frets and a satin finish for supreme comfort and playability. Vintage-style ‘60s Jazz Bass pickups provide bright and clear tone while a 4-saddle bridge delivers rock-solid stability and intonation. Every Anniversary Jazz Bass features a special 75th anniversary engraved neck plate and ships in a deluxe gig bag.
This limited-edition Jazz Bass is a fitting homage to one of Fender’s most influential designs, providing classic Fender style and tone in an exclusive upscale package.
