The ubiquitous 5-string

As roundwound strings and brighter bass sounds became popular in the 1970s, a number of modifications were made to the J Bass to accommodate the changing tastes in music production; most notably, maple fingerboards and a back pickup moved closer to the bridge. And later when 5-string basses came into vogue, the Jazz Bass — a staple of funk and fusion — was a natural for adding a low B string. The 5-string Jazz Bass and has since become ubiquitous on stages, in orchestra pits, and in studios worldwide.

Timeless single-coil bass sound

Although the versatile Classic Vibe '70s Jazz Bass V sounds great in just about any context, it really shines in musical settings that demand that classic scooped, growling bass sound and benefit from the extended range of a tight, responsive low B string that feels like a natural extension of the instrument. With the Classic Vibe '70s J Bass V, you can achieve a myriad of tones by blending the volume of both Fender Designed Alnico single-coil pickups to taste. Whether you play jazz, rock, metal, blues, country — or any fusions thereof — the Classic Vibe '70s Jazz Bass V will deliver the tones you need.

Shaped for comfort and performance

One of the things that made the J Bass an instant hit with working bass players was its unique offset-waist body shape. Perfect whether playing standing or seated, the classic Jazz Bass contoured body will make those marathon gigs and sessions much more comfortable. With its slim C-profile neck (1.875" wide at the nut in the 5-string version), this instrument was originally designed to appeal to jazz bassists. The slender neck not only facilitates the fluid execution of fast, complex bass lines; it's perfect for any musical style — which is why you hear the Jazz Bass in every genre of music.
