This new series features modern fingerboard profiles, vintage tall frets, period-accurate pickups, era-specific neck profiles and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish. These enhancements create more playable instruments, whilst keeping true to the concepts of the originals.

The '70s Jazz Bass inspired new playing techniques and led to new creative forms of expression. It's treble "bite", growly midrange and smooth feel made it a hugely popular studio bass. The updated American Original has updated the smooth playing feel with a modern-radius fingerboard, whislt still keeping the sound and style that made the Jazz Bass the tool of choice for creative bassists.
