Fender Custom Shop Journeyman 1966 Jazz Bass, Aged Black
Humbucker Music is proud to be a Fender Custom Shop Showcase Dealer (the highest level).
Revolutionizing the world of rumble, the Jazz Bass directly evolved from the foundation the Precision Bass had established, with its offset body, narrow nut width and added neck pickup. The 1966 Journeyman Relic J Bass brandishes time-correct features like matching Headstock, hand-wound vintage Jazz Bass pickups designed with 2 pole pieces per string to provide a mellower “jazzy” tone, and signature Fender Custom Shop aged lacquer of a well-played classic rumble warrior.
In true Custom Shop fashion, tradition meets modern playability in this J Bass. This bass combines a 2-piece select alder body and a riftsawn maple neck with a '60 J Bass U shaped neck profile, round-lam rosewood fingerboard, 7.5" radius, and 20 6105 frets.
Additional features include period-accurate Jazz Bass bridge, vintage-style Oval Jazz Bass tuners, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
