1966 Fender Jazz Bass (consignment) SOLD

1966 Fender Jazz Bass (consignment) SOLD

Here’s a hardworking 1966 Fender Jazz Bass.

Introduced in 1960, Leo Fender’s Jazz Bass tends to have a tighter, more focused tone that doesn’t emphasize the fundamental frequencies as much as the Precision bass does. This helps it to move ‘forward’ in an audio mix, making it more popular in emerging musical styles where there was more emphasis on the bass – for example, rock power trios and funk.

Fender Stratocaster ‘Hardtail’ Sunburst 1977 (consignment) Sold

Fender Stratocaster 'Hardtail' Sunburst 1977 (consignment) Sold

Here’s a Fender Stratocaster ‘Hardtail’ from 1977. The Stratocaster, one of the manifestations of Leo Fender’s genius, was introduced in 1954 with options for floating trem bridge and hard-tails, employing the back-of-body string ferrules found on the Telecaster. The hardtail verion was produced in smaller numbers until 2007, when it was discontinued. Hard-tail strats have a little more attack, bite, and sustain due to the lack of spring tension absorbing some energy.

Fender Jaguar 1965 (consignment) Sold

Fender Jaguar 1965 (consignment) Sold

Here’s a lovely Fender Jaguar from 1965, in good condition.

Fender introduced the Jaguar in 1962. Its 24.75″ scale length was intended to make it attractive to players who preferred the shorter scale of Gibson guitars — this can make complex chord voicings easier to reach.

However, the Jaguar didn’t catch on much outside the Surf music community, and production ended in 1975. In the early 1990’s, Fender Japan started making reissues, and by 1999 US production had resumed.
