The Jazz Bass

Sleek and supercharged with dual pickups, a slim neck and a curvaceous offset waist, the Jazz Bass has ruled the world of electric bass ever since Fender introduced it at the dawn of the 1960s. Its versatile and unmistakable tone, effortless feel and racecar performance make it the number-one instrument of choice for bassists of all stripes and styles worldwide.


Fender welcomed a new decade by introducing a deluxe bass guitar model called the Jazz Bass in 1960. With dual pickups, it complemented the seismic boom of the Precision Bass with singing high end a deeply satisfying guttural snarl. Its sleekly offset body and slim, fast neck made the Jazz Bass a veritable racecar of an instrument, and it has ruled the electric bass world ever since.
