The Fender American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass, seen here in a great looking Natural urethane gloss finish, gives you the authentic style and tone of a 70s Jazz Bass with a hint of modern enhancement.

Get Funky with an Authentic ‘70s Jazz Bass Experience

With the Fender Jazz Bass entering the 1970s, and with that its teenage years, it took on a new visual style and began inspiring new playing techniques and forms of creative expression.

The American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass takes that smooth playing feel further with a modern-radius fingerboard while retaining all the classic tone and style that has made the Jazz Bass such a versatile and popular instrument all these decades.

Fender American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass in Natural Key Features:

  • Ash Body with Gloss Polyurethane Finish
  • Two Pure Vintage ‘75 Single-Coil Jazz Bass Pickups
  • Thick ’70s U-Shaped Neck Profile
  • 9.5” Radius Fingerboard
  • Vintage-Style Hardware
  • Includes Vintage-Style Hardshell Case

Crafting the American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass

Ash has been used to craft the iconic shape of the American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass, with its distinctive cutaway design allowing for easy reach of the higher frets.

Attached to the body, you’ll find a Maple neck with a sleek ‘70s U shape giving you a comfortable and agile grip.

A Maple fretboard with vintage tall frets provides that classic playing feel while its 9.5” radius is more modern and familiar.

Authentic Hardware and Electronics

On the body of the American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass, you’ll find a 4-saddle Pure Vintage ‘70s bridge with single groove saddles and at the headstock there are Pure Vintage ‘70s tuning machines (complete with Fender logo), working together to keep your strings perfectly in tune while adding some authentic vintage flair.

Giving the American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass its versatile voice is a pair of Pure Vintage ’75 Jazz Bass single coil pickups that are as period-correct as possible.

From their enamel-coated coil wire and cloth-covered output wires to the fibre bobbins and Alnico 5 magnets, these pickups give you the deep growl and articulate punch that has made the Jazz Bass such a popular instrument all these decades.

Individual volume controls for each pick up and a Master Tone knob allow you to get the sound just how you like it.

Includes Vintage-Style Hardshell Case

In keeping with the vintage theme, the American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass comes complete with a vintage style hardshell case – the perfect way to store your bass guitar and protect it on your way to gigs.
