What Makes It A Jazz Bass
Sleek Offset Body
Pluck or pick in comfortable style, thanks to the forward-shifted waist that perfectly balances the neck.
Dual Single-Coil Pickups
There's no mistaking the distinctive growl and singing high end of single-coil Jazz Bass pickups.
SLIM TAPERED NECK
Slightly narrow at the nut, the slim Jazz Bass neck is designed for speed, comfort and performance.
