The Essence of the ’70s Jazz Bass

From hard rock to slap-and-pop funk, the '70s Jazz Bass captures the essence of the 1970s with striking looks and a bright, full sound still prized today by bassists everywhere. That decade saw the bridge pickup moved closer to the bridge, creating a brighter, more cutting tone, and the elegant addition of neck binding and block fingerboard inlays. That's all offered in this authentically styled instrument loaded with vintage vibe and modern performance.

  • Maple neck with thicker 1970s “C” profile and “bullet” truss rod system
  • 7.25”-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and pearloid block inlays
  • • Dual vintage-style single-coil Jazz Bass pickups with period-correct bridge pickup placement
