Classic Style Jazz Bass for Vintage Enthusiasts

Fender has exercised high precision attention to detail to achieve designs that are indistinguishable from originals found in their early era instruments. The American Vintage '64 is a recreation of 1964 models that Fender tracked down so they could achieve such accuracy. With that, you get a vintage sunburst finish, rosewood fretboard with dot inlays, reverse tuners, and a lot more.

Main Features

  • Slimmer neck with C shape
  • Auxiliary strap button on back of headstock
  • Newly voiced pickups

Slimmer Neck

The C shaped neck accurately replicates those of the particular time period that the '64 bass was made after. It gives an authentic vintage playing feel and is comfortably suited for all sorts of playing styles, so you can be as diverse as you want to be.

Auxiliary Strap Button

To replicate basses of the 60's, this features a strap button on the back of the headstock so you can hook a strap from the side of the body to the back of the headstock. If having your strap go all the way out to your headstock doesn't strike your fancy, don't worry, there's still a strap button located on the upper horn of the bass.

Newly Voiced Pickups

The American Vintage pickups have all been researched thoroughly so Fender would be able to recreate ones used in the 50's, 60's, and so on. After all, they are one of the single most important components for achieving the intended purpose of the bass by replicating 60's models.

Bassists who crave vintage style will love the Fender Amiercan Vintage '64 Jazz bass. Check it out!

From The Manufacturer

The Jazz Bass® acquired an even slimmer C-shaped maple neck in 1964; it was also the last year for clay-dot fingerboard markers. That's what you'll find here on the American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass, which has other authentic features including a round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and clay-colored dot inlays, three-ply white pickguard (four-ply brown pickguard on Three-Color Sunburst and Olympic White models), new American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, lower-mounted finger rest, vintage-style bridge with threaded steel "barrel" saddles, black plastic control knobs, reverse tuners, chrome pickup and "F"-stamped bridge covers with vintage-accurate positioning, auxiliary strap button on the back of the headstock, and more. Available in Three-Color Sunburst, Olympic White, Lake Placid Blue (with matching headstock) and Black.
