This F Bass Fretless bass uses three woods – Flamed Maple for the neck, Poplar for the wings, and African Blackwood for the fingerboard. It uses a neck-through construction. For hardware, Schaller tuners are at the head, and a Leo Quan Badass bridge with a riser. Electronics are passive and consist of a Aguilar AG4J-HC pickup in the bridge position, paired with a Hi-A (High-Asymmetry) pickup in the neck position. This bass originally shipped with a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup in the bridge position.

‼️Reduced‼️ Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue Natural, 2001

‼️Reduced‼️ Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue Natural, 2001

The Fender 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 Jazz 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.
