Fender Jazz Bass Olympic White, 1965

Fender Jazz Bass Olympic White, 1965

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. The Jazz Bass was built until 1981, and has since been offered in a wide range of models based on the original concept. Here we’re treated to a Fender Jazz Bass in Olympic White finish, dating to 7 May 1965 and built at the Fender plant in Fullerton, California just after the company’s purchase by CBS.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Jaguar Olympic White, 1965

❌SOLD❌ Fender Jaguar Olympic White, 1965

The Fender Jaguar appeared in 1962, and while it was based on concepts and parts used on the Jazzmaster, there were a number of design departures. Like the Jazzmaster, the Fender Jaguar used an offset-waist body with comfort contours, and shared the same bridge and vibrato tailpiece design. And, the Jaguar sported the same Rosewood fingerboard, which by this time was a curved veneer rather than a ‘slab’ with a flat bottom.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Olympic White, 2006

❌SOLD❌  Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Olympic White, 2006

The Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster, here as an Olympic White 2006 custom shop build, recognizes Beck’s needs for sonic versatility and tuning stability. Unusually for top flight rock players, Jeff Beck plays fingerstyle, without picks, and his heavy use of the trem bridge is part of his unmistakable sound. In the mid 1960’s, Jeff Beck was one of three top English players closely associated with the Telecaster – Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page were the other two.
