The Vintage Hot Rod ’70s Jazz Bass gives you the best P/J Fender bass tone, style and performance of both eras—authentically vintage-style design touches straight from the 1970s and hot-rodded modern mods ideal for today’s players.
Premium features include an alder body; maple neck with “U”-shaped profile, Posiflex™ graphite support rods, vintage-style heel-end truss rod adjustment and satin back finish; and a compound-radius (7.25”-12”) rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, bone nut and white pearloid block inlays. Richly versatile and powerful tone comes from its American Vintage ’63 split single-coil Precision Bass (middle) and ’74 Jazz Bass® single-coil (bridge) pickups.
Other features include a four-ply tortoiseshell pickguard (Three-color Sunburst model) or three-ply white pickguard (Candy Apple Red model), three vintage-style black plastic Jazz Bass control knobs (volume 1, volume 2, master tone), Fender Hi-Mass bridge, vintage-style tuners with tapered shafts, Stealth “A” string retainer on headstock, locking strap buttons, and engraved Vintage Hot Rod neck plate with crossed checkered flags emblem and ’70s-style black plastic bushing. Available in Three-color Sunburst and Candy Apple Red gloss finishes. Includes vintage-style black case with orange interior, chrome pickup cover, 8’ cable, thumb rest and vintage-style leather strap.
