Unboxing The Fender MIJ Traditional '60s Jazz Bass - Recreating The Magic of The Original!


The Traditional '60s Jazz captures the magic of the original design as if it were brand new. It's made of a basswood body coated in polyester and spruced up with a vibrant three-tone colour. The classically tapered maple neck is topped with a 7.25-inch radius rosewood fretboard you know and love for its smooth playability.

Hardware appointments include oversized tuners, a sturdy four saddle bridge and an authentic bone nut ensuring stable tuning and string movement.


A '60s Jazz sounds funky, lively and precise. That's all down to the double dose of vintage style single coil Jazz pickups, which produce a growling output with a prominent high end. They changed the way bassists played at the time and that versatility is still there to explore, thanks to individual volume and tone knobs assigned to each pickup.
