Fender's American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass!When you buy a FENDER® American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass®, you're buying a modern reproduction of a bass that helped define modern music. Fender based the American Vintage Series on actual vintage instruments from their past, to bring you a period-correct '64 J Bass® that plays like a modern classic. From the classic body shape and tone woods to the "ash tray" cover, this bass screams vintage. The slimmer C-shaped neck and laminated-rosewood fretboard ensure authentic feel and vibe. Newly designed American Vintage pickups give you the bold, and sought-after, tone of the original. For pure, unadulterated '60s J bass vibe, pick up Fender's American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass®.
Fender American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass® Solidbody Electric Bass at a Glance:
Panstaking vintage accuracy graces this guitar
For the American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass, Fender tracked down several of the original '64s and exhaustively analyzed them to ensure a painstaking level of vintage accuracy. Every facet of the original instruments - including minute details such as curves, perimeters, radii and more - was examined, measured, evaluated, and ultimately incorporated into the American Vintage '64 J Bass®. What you see in this remarkable guitar is more than the sum of its parts. It's a highly playable, eminently musical-sounding recreation of an iconic instrument that changed music forever.
Original neck shape with laminated-rosewood fretboard offers authentic feel
The Fender American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass sports a slimmer C-shaped maple neck and a rounded-rosewood laminate fretboard. Fender moved away from the "slab" style of fingerboards in 1962, because they had a tendency to split from the neck due to humidity changes. The rounded laminate method minimized the differences in the way the two woods contracted, but it was far more costly, as the single piece of rosewood had to be hand contoured to perfectly fit the neck. By painstakingly recreating this process Fender ensured that the American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass would give you the same feel and sound as an original 1964 Jazz Bass.
The magic of Fender's American Vintage series
Since its introduction in the early 1980s, Fender's American Vintage series has been the go-to source for the last word in original-era model year guitars and basses. With today's American Vintage basses, Fender has gone back to the drawing board with new features, new specs and the most fanatical level of vintage accuracy yet. They've restored original tooling dies, voiced new pickups, reformulated vintage colors, and more - based on actual vintage instruments. From its flawless vintage looks, to its impeccable tone and playing feel, there's pure magic in the Fender American Vintage '64 Jazz Master!
