Reverb Estimated Price Range

  • $3,500$6,000

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. By 1966, the Jazz Bass had evolved from the original in a few subtle ways: the original "stacked" control knobs of 1960 were replaced by a simple three knob control configuration and the original string mutes on the bridge were dropped. The 1967 Jazz Bass was offered mostly with a rosewood fingerboard, but a maple option became available in this year as well.
