Fender has announced the latest in its Alternate Reality line of oddball electric guitars - meet The Sixty-Six, which teams a downsized Jazz Bass body with Strat and Tele appointments.
The ash body features the same chrome control plate and knobs as the traditional Jazz Bass design, and is even offered in the trademark Jazz Bass natural finish with black scratch plate, but adds the Strat’s vintage-style synchronised tremolo.
Two Player Series Tele single coils and a Player Series hum-bucker are onboard, tweaked via a five-way selector switch.
Elsewhere, there’s a Modern C maple neck with 9.5”-radius fingerboard, and vintage-style tuning machines.
Besides the natural look, other finishes include Three-Color Sunburst and a delectable Daphne Blue, both with three-ply mint green pick-guards.
