More about American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass®

The Jazz Bass® acquired an even slimmer C-shaped maple neck in 1964; it was also the last year for clay-dot fingerboard markers. That's what you'll find here on the American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass, which has other authentic features including a round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and clay-colored dot inlays, three-ply white pickguard (four-ply brown pickguard on Three-Color Sunburst and Olympic White models), new American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, lower-mounted finger rest, vintage-style bridge with threaded steel "barrel" saddles, black plastic control knobs, reverse tuners, chrome pickup and "F"-stamped bridge covers with vintage-accurate positioning, auxiliary strap button on the back of the headstock, and more. Available in Three-Color Sunburst, Olympic White, Lake Placid Blue (with matching headstock) and Black.

This bass kills it! The tone is great and the feel is unbelievable. If you're looking for a vintage bass tone and vibe, then you need this bass.

*Tone, design and looks are great.
*Neck slightly more prone to warping than thicker (US standard) necks.
*Sunburst looks fantastic, much better than the brownish tone of most other jazzes.
*Price point is quite high, so be VERY sure to compare multiple basses before buying.
