Pick up some tone
It's raw and ready. Being equipped with Fender Designed Alnico Single-Coil pickups, the Classic Vibe Jazz Bass has all the sonic characteristics of a muscular machine. Its tone is loud and full bodied, capable of filling out any song with a beautiful low end. The Alnico Single-Coil pickup in the bridge offers a higher output, crisp sound which is both clear powerful, and will explode with chunkiness and fat tone. The neck Single-Coil is slightly warmer, rounding off some of the higher frequencies and giving you the ability to add a softer dynamic and sound to your basslines. Backed up by these sonic tools, you'll be able to breathe fresh life into your bass playing and have a clear, well rounded tone at all times.
Your pathway to creativity. Each feature of this Classic Vibe 70s bass has been carefully designed to make it easy to play. There's a maple neck which adds some brightness tonally, whilst offering silky smoothness for your fretting hand. Being in a C shape, it also fits into your palm naturally, providing a great deal of comfort when you’re playing. Sitting atop the maple neck is a maple fretboard, which is also incredibly smooth, and gives you complete freedom to improvise at will. Thanks to its excellent playability, this bass has more than enough potential to take your playing further.
