Fender Custom Shop Limited 1960 Jazz Bass, Heavy Relic, 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 1960 Heavy Relic Jazz Bass brandishes time-correct features like concentric stacked control knobs, 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 quartersawn maple neck with a '60 J Bass U shaped neck profile, slab rosewood fingerboard, 9.5" radius, and 20 Medium Jumbo frets.
Additional features include period-accurate Jazz Bass bridge with threaded steel saddles, vintage-style Jazz Bass tuners, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
