6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Original-Era Nitrocellulose Lacquer

Unlike other models from the classic series, this Classic 60s Jazz Bass features a beautifully smooth nitrocellulose lacquer. This finish is considered one of the greatest original-era Fender finishes, with its thin, porous, and delicate coating allowing the tonewoods to breath with their natural tonal character. Its also known to wear and age in a certain way that appeal's to many players.

Timeless Look From the 1960s

The 60s Jazz Bass features a classic design instantly recognisable as Fender, and was first introduced in 1960 and been popular ever since. The classic alder body provides players with a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity and body. Fender has used alder as their tonewood of choice for guitars since the 1950s, as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing. Players can benefit from a comfortable performance with its stylish cutaway design, offering easier access to the higher frets and improving playability.

C-Shaped Neck Profile Offers a Comfortable Play

Like many bass guitars from Fender, the Classic Jazz Bass features the popular C-Shaped profile to deliver an incredibly comfortable playing experience. This type of neck profile leaves a small pocket of space between the palm of the player's hand and the neck of the bass guitar, allowing more versatility along the fingerboard. It also provides a comfortable playing style enabling you to play for longer. The maple neck is coupled with a pau ferro fingerboard, enhancing the bass with a beautiful bright, warm character and creating a speaking high end, thick low end, and an open midrange punch.

Standard Vintage Single-Coil Jazz Bass Pickups

A pair of standard vintage single-coil Jazz Bass pickups provide the Fender with a warm, vintage tone inspired by the iconic Motown tones of the 60s. The pickups are designed with alnico magnets to offer the classic low-end flavour and midrange scoop. Players can benefit from a full host of classic warm tones, with plenty of midrange thump, and a rich bottom end. Independent volume and master tone controls allow players to dial in a variety of tonal options, creating an incredibly versatile bass suitable for a variety of musical styles.

Resonant Synthetic Bone Nut

Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, the Fender Jazz Bass delivers an increased resonance and bright tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.

The History of the Jazz Bass

Introduced in 1960, Fender welcomed a new decade by debuting a deluxe bass guitar, the Jazz Bass. Sleek and supercharged with dual pickups, a slim neck and a curvaceous offset waist, the Jazz Bass has ruled the world of electric bass ever since Fender first introduced it. The versatile and unmistakable tone, effortless feel and performance make the Jazz Bass the number-one choice for professional bassists worldwide.
