Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Custom Jazz Bass Heavy Relic, Rosewood Fingerboard, Aged Black
“Big time Jazz Bass tones! These basses play and sound perfect if you are looking for the vintage experience. Both pickups offer unique voices when solo’d, or combine them for the prototypical Jazz sound. The bridge pickup gives you all of that great midrange punch while the neck pickup brings in some of that P-Bass fundamental. Play it wide open for a sweet slap tone. The bottom line is a remarkably versatile bass that leans towards vintage.” – Anthony (Empire Music)
Rebellious in look and thunderous in tone, the Limited Edition Custom Jazz Bass® Heavy Relic® has enough swank to make you break out the shades and leather jacket. There’s no messing around with this low-end behemoth, which has a two-piece ash body clad in a Heavy Relic lacquer finish; a tinted quartersawn maple neck with a ’60 Jazz Bass “U” profile; and a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo (6150) frets, white nitro binding and mother of pearl block inlays. Hand-wound vintage Jazz Bass pickups are wired to knurled chrome master volume and tone control knobs on the chrome control plate for a classically enticing look.
Other features include a three-ply black pickguard, vintage-style bass bridge with four threaded saddles, vintage-style ’66 “lollipop” tuning machines, bone nut and a third strap button on the rear of the headstock for old-school upright-style play. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
