Rebellious in look and thunderous in tone, the Limited Edition Custom Jazz Bass® Heavy Relic® has enough swank to make you break out the shades and leather jacket. There’s no messing around with this low-end behemoth, which has a two-piece ash body clad in a Heavy Relic lacquer finish; a tinted quartersawn maple neck with a ’60 Jazz Bass “U” profile; and a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo (6150) frets, white nitro binding and mother of pearl block inlays. Hand-wound vintage Jazz Bass pickups are wired to knurled chrome master volume and tone control knobs on the chrome control plate for a classically enticing look.
Other features include a three-ply black pickguard, vintage-style bass bridge with four threaded saddles, vintage-style ’66 “lollipop” tuning machines, bone nut and a third strap button on the rear of the headstock for old-school upright-style play. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
