Fender Jazz Bass – New and Used Guitars

The Fender Jazz Bass, introduced in 1960 (9 years after the P Bass) , stands as an iconic instrument that has left an indelible mark on the world of electric bass guitars. Born from the innovative mind of Leo Fender, the Jazz Bass was conceived as a counterpart to the Precision Bass, offering a sleek and versatile alternative for bassists. Its introduction marked a departure from the P Bass with features like a slimmer neck profile, offset body design, and dual single-coil pickups. The 1950’s were the boom years at Fender Guitars and the Jazz Bass was one of many innovative designs.
