What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender American Original '70s Jazz Bass with Maple Fingerboard is a high-quality Vintage USA J-Bass model by Fender.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Fender American Original 70s Jazz Bass's vintage 1970s look and feel, it's Pure Vintage 70s bridge, Pure Vintage 70s machine heads, bone nut, comfortable 1975 U maple neck and it's ash body as well as the Pure Vintage '75 single-coil Jazz Bass pickups.
What Fender has to say:
Over the course of the ‘70s, the Jazz Bass entered its “teenage years,” changing its visual style and inspiring new playing techniques—such as slapping—which led directly to new, creative forms of expression. Its smooth feel and growly midrange, tempered with a bit of treble bite, made it a hero in recording sessions around the globe. The American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass updates the smooth playing feel with a modern-radius fingerboard, while retaining the classic Fender tone and style that made the Jazz Bass the tool of choice for creative bassists.
