What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender American Original '60s Jazz Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard is a high-quality Vintage USA J-Bass model by Fender.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Fender American Original 60s Jazz Bass's vintage 1960s look and feel, it's Vintage-style bridge with threaded saddles, reverse open-gear Pure Vintage machine heads, bone nut, comfortable '60s C maple neck and it's traditional nitrocellulose lacquer finish as well as the Pure Vintage '64 single-coil Jazz Bass pickups.
What Fender has to say:
Released in 1960, the upscale Jazz Bass quickly found favor among working bassists thanks to its premium appointments and versatile sound. The narrower neck seemed tailor-made for fast, dexterous playing, while the pair of single-coil pickups added a bold new dimension to Fender bass tone. The American Original ‘60s Jazz Bass has all the tone and style of its earliest incarnation, with modern playability.
