1960 Fender Jazz Bass, Sunburst with Factory Original LaBella Strings
This is a very fun bass to play. It has certainly seen some playing action during it's lifetime. The bass is completely original, down to it's factory-installed Labella strings. I have owned and sampled a LOT of vintage Fender basses and when I first acquired this and eventually got around to plugging it in, the sounds it made were impressive, being more reminiscent of a Precision Bass to me as it is darker, fat and punchy.
Concentric knob jazz basses have a sound that differs form their 3 knob brethren due to having different wiring and electronic components, and I have heard many of those, however, this one spoke to me.
The original Labella 760 bass strings create something special that I very much appreciate and never intend to alter.
