The Fender Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960 as a higher-end alternative to the Precision Bass with closer string spacing, a thinner neck profile at the nut, and two punchy single-coil pickups. The Jazz Bass evolved in a number of subtle ways throughout the 60s with major changes coming during the CBS Fender buyout of 1965.

In 1962, the knobs on the J Bass changed from two concentric controls to three distinct knobs. Examples with just two knobs should be priced along the same lines as a 1961 Jazz Bass. This Price Guide represents the later 3 knob version.
