Overview

The first set of changes for the Jazz Bass came quite early, with the "stacked knob" configuration from the first instruments giving way to the more familiar 3-control layout. Around 1962, the slab rosewood fretboard used on earlier instruments was replaced with a thinner rosewood veneer, with the string mutes coming off in 1963 and pearl dots replacing the clay dot in lays in 1964.
