Fender Player Jaguar Bass Tidepool Blue 2018

Fender Player Jaguar Bass Tidepool Blue 2018

Here’s a cool new bass from Fender’s Player Series – the Fender Player Jaguar Bass. It’s built in Corona, Mexico and is affordably priced new take on a P-J bass with an offset body!
This new design starts with proven principles that deliver reliability and tonal versatility. A one-piece Maple neck is paired with an offset Alder body, and a P-J pickup set – that’s a Precision Bass style pickup, with a Jazz Bass bridge pickup with individual volume and master tone controls- handles the electronics. A fully adjustable Fender bridge and open-gear tuners complete the hardware.

⚌Reduced‼ Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 Bass Honeyburst, 2004

⚌Reduced‼ Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 Bass Honeyburst, 2004

Introduced in 1987, the Stingray 5 bass was the first new bass offered following Ernie Ball’s purchase of Music Man, and has consistently had a solid following. This model is based on the Music Man Stingray bass introduced in 1976 and partly designed by Leo Fender, with input from Sterling Ball. When first introduced, it was quickly adopted by players like Tony Levin and others who frequently needed lower C or B notes, but without sacrificing the tone of higher pitches.

Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4, 2008

Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4, 2008

The Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4 is a top quality, thinline bass with passive electronics, here in fretted form but also available as fretless. Introduced in 2008, this model is derived from the Framus Star Bass. The thinline construction concept is very familiar on guitars, but less so on basses. Though there can be a risk of feedback at higher volumes, the somewhat ’rounder’ attack and decay profiles evokes the tone of an acoustic bass.

Fender Jazz Bass Burgundy Refinish, 1962

Fender Jazz Bass Burgundy Refinish, 1962

Here we have a Fender Jazz Bass dating to 7 May 1962 with a Burgundy refinish replacing the original Sunburst. This is a fairly rare Rosewood Slab Board model, indicating a type of neck built in Fullerton, California until mid 1962. The Fender Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960, aimed at the Jazz bass players who had not adopted the Precision Bass or who wanted a thinner neck and more focused tone. The Offset Body that debuted on the 1958 Jazzmaster was used for the Jazz Bass body.

Spector USA Forte 4 Bass Black, 2015

Spector USA Forte 4 Bass Black, 2015

The Spector USA Forte 4 bass brings back the early highly innovative Spector basses seen at The Twelfth Fret and in the hands of many pro players in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Stuart Spector began building basses with Alan Charney about the same time as The Twelfth Fret, and soon connected with Ned Steinberger – all members of the Brooklyn Woodworker’s Co-op. Steinberger, fresh from a furniture design course, took Spector’s neck-through construction and added a unique and very comfortable curved body. That curved body became one of the hallmarks of Spector designs.

Fender Jazz Bass Natural, 1973

Fender Jazz Bass Natural, 1973

The Fender Jazz Bass made its appearance in 1960 as Fender’s second major bass design after the two versions of the Precision Bass.  Targeted towards the Jazz players still using acoustic instruments, the Jazz Bass offered a punchy, focused tone and a narrow fast fingerboard. Offered with either a Maple or Rosewood fingerboard, this instrument was built until 1981 when it was replaced by the Standard Jazz Bass. The Fender Jazz Bass uses the same proven and highly reliable design concept as other Fender instruments – a Maple neck bolted to an Ash or Alder body.
