1966 Jazz Bass® Journeyman Relic®, Round-Laminated Rosewood Fingerboard, Aged Black
Model Number: 9235001171
Fender was clearly having fun when it designed the 1966 Jazz Bass®. The evolution of the instrument reached new heights that year, with striking new features including neck binding, block inlays and paddle tuners. We love the original so much that the 1966 Jazz Bass Journeyman Relic® has been created to nearly the exact specifications of the original, with some streamlined upgrades.
The Journeyman Relic lacquer finish on the two-piece alder body has a terrific worn-in look and feel. The stable rift-sawn maple neck has a comfortable “U” profile, and the 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard has narrow tall frets, plus mother-of-pearl block inlays and parchment binding for a classic signature look. Other features include a vintage-correct headstock strap button, nitrocellulose brown shell pickguard, finger rest, and vintage-style tuning machines with “paddle” buttons. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
