Appearing in 1960, the Fender Jazz Bass was an attempt to gain market share from the Jazz player crowd, just as with the Jaguar and Jazzmaster. Touring jazz bassists, however, had been among the early adopters of the Fender Precision bass, because portability and the ability to add a lot of volume were very valuable features.

The Jazz Bass used the same proven Fender construction, with an Alder or Ash body and bolt on Maple neck. At 1960, Fender was learning how to add Rosewood fingerboards to their necks, and this was partly to win Gibson players over. The Jass Bass had the new ‘offset’ body style, and a pair of single coil pickups. The earliest models used two concentric pots, each controlling volume and tone for one pickup. This soon gave way to the modern layout, of two volumes and one master tone control.

Here we’re looking at a Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue model, built during 2001 at Corona, California and carrying a Natural finish. The Maple neck features black binding and black block position markers, and the early 1970’s style Bullet truss rod adjuster and three-bolt, Micro-Tilt neck angle adjustment. The Micro-Tilt was revolutionary for the time, and is now found on many models but with four bolts for stability.

This bass is in very clean condition, and plays well. The pickguard is not original. The original molded hard shell case is included.
