Fender American Original '60s Jazz Bass Overview.
For 2020 the extremely popular vintage inspired Fender American Original Series has a few new additions which we think look great! Due to popular demand there is now a Fender American Original 70s Telecaster Custom which is available in three different colours, Mocha, Vintage Blonde and 3-Colour Sunburst also there is now a Fender American Original 60s Telecaster thinline available in Surf Green, Aged Natural and 3-Colour Sunburst. Adding to that they have updated a few colour options for the Fender American Original 60s Stratocaster which is now available in the extremely popular Shell Pink and the American Original 50s Precision Bass is now in Aztec Gold to name a few.
Released in 1960, the upscale Jazz Bass quickly found favor among working bassists thanks to its premium appointments and versatile sound. The narrower neck seemed tailor-made for fast, dexterous playing, while the pair of single-coil pickups added a bold new dimension to Fender bass tone. The American Original ‘60s Jazz Bass has all the tone and style of its earliest incarnation, with modern playability.
