Our ’70s Jazz Bass captures the essence of the decade, defined by striking cosmetics and a bright, full sound.
The ’70s saw the repositioning of the bridge pickup closer to the bridge, creating a brighter tone that cut through mixes more. The biggest cosmetic upgrade came in the form of gorgeous block inlays and neck binding, which are highly sought after by many bassists. The bullet truss rod completes the look. Seventies-era Jazz Bass guitars are widely regarded as the basses built for funk. The offset waist, ultra-slim neck and vintage-style alnico magnet Jazz Bass single-coil pickups all make this bass very comfortable and familiar.
