The Fender 70'sJazz Bass comes with great sounding, passive pickups. It features a nicely adjustable bridge as well as solid Fender tuners, which hold whatever tunings quite well after a few minor adjustments. The C-shape neck profile, although it might seem too thick for players who are used to more 'modern' neck profiles, allows for a great playability and is very easy to get used to (imho) and is especially very comfortable to play live. Not to mention the brilliant perloid block inlays and white bindings. If by now you seem convinced of the 70's JB, I hope you'll have as much fun playing the instrument as I have. Cheers, Fenriz
I have this bass in natural, with a black pickguard. I have EMG Jazz pickups in it (Actives) and a Badass II bridge. These upgrades aren't essential, (The bridge is in my opinion) but make it all the bit better. Great product.
