Fender Jazz Bass Natural Refinish, 1966

Fender Jazz Bass Natural Refinish, 1966

Here is a Fender Jazz Bass Natural refinish, with body and neck built towards the end of 1965 but assembled, wired and sold in early 1966. The Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960, as Leo Fender’s second distinct bass after the two versions of the Precision Bass. Targeted towards Jazz players and taking design cues from the then-new Jazzmaster and Jaguar models, particularly the offset body, the Jazz Bass offered a brighter, more focused tone with less fundamental than the Precision Bass along with a much narrower neck.

❌SOLD❌ Fender '62 Reissue Jazz Bass Olympic White, 1988

Here we have a Fender ’62 Reissue Jazz Bass in Olympic White and with gold hardware and original style concentric controls, built during 1988 in Corona, California. Introduced in 1960, Leo Fender’s Jazz Bass sought to win over the bass players who hadn’t yet adopted his Precision Bass and still played upright acoustic instruments. His thought was that the narrower neck and brighter pickups would appeal to jazz artists.

The Fender Jazz Bass was launched in 1960 as part of an effort to capture the interest of serious jazz bass players still using upright acoustic instruments.
