Do you want that old-school feel and vibe of a vintage J-Bass? Then you'll love the Fender Custom Shop 1961 Closet Classic Jazz Bass.

Fender Custom Shop 1961 Closet Classic Jazz Bass at a Glance:
  • Lightweight, "offset waist" alder body
  • Quartersawn neck for stability
  • Dual, single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity
Lightweight, "offset waist" alder body

Bass guitars are big and that can mean heavy, too. So the Fender Custom Shop 1961 Closet Classic Jazz Bass comes with the distinctive "offset waist" body design, but made from alder, which is resonant, but relatively light, which you'll appreciate after two or three hours up on stage.

Quartersawn neck for stability

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, and the Fender Custom Shop 1961 Closet Classic Jazz Bass features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll love the playability and feel of the 1961 Closet Classic Jazz Bass's rosewood fretboard with a vintage 7.5" radius and a vintage "U" neck shape.

Dual, single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity

Fender's early electric basses had just one pickup. So naturally, if one was good, two was even better. The Fender Custom Shop 1961 Closet Classic Jazz Bass gives you two vintage-style single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity for quieter operation, both on stage and in the studio. You'll get all the low-end thump and growl you expect from a 1961 Jazz Bass. Vintage-style stacked concentric control knobs give you control over volume and tone for each pickup.

Fender Custom Shop 1961 Closet Classic Jazz Bass Features:
  • Precise reissue of an iconic American bass
  • Quartersawn maple neck for stability and long life
  • Vintage stacked concentric control knobs
  • 1960's U shape neck with 7.5" fretboard radius

Bring a piece of history to your bass collection with the Fender Custom Shop 1961 Closet Classic Jazz Bass!
