Other than the fact that they've put a clear coat over the "worn away" finish on this bass, it's remarkable how good Fender has gotten at the aging process. But does that even matter? Truth be told we dig the look, and the concentric knobs are an interesting throwback to early versions of the Jazz Bass that are often forgotten. The tight radius fretboard makes string-to-string transitions effortless, and the '64 vintage pickups have the bounce, definition and piano-like response that makes the Jazz Bass an essential for tool for funk, slap, and driving percussive bass. The Jazz Bass was an attempt by Leo Fender to reach beyond his early core markets of Country, Western Swing and early Rock 'n Roll. Whether he was successful in his "jazz" endeavor is debatable, but we're sure glad he tried.
