Fender do an absolutely stunning job at going back through their archives are re-creating some of their most iconic guitars and basses, here is another example of them doing just that. This Fender Vintera 60s Jazz Bass in Daphne Blue features a Mid-60s C shape neck, Vintage Style '60s Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups and most interestingly American Vintage Reverse Open-Gear Bass tuners!
Here's what Fender have to say:
For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera ‘60s Jazz Bass. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with recreated ‘60s pickups—this bass has all of the growl that made the J Bass® famous.
For authentic, original-era tone we re-voiced the pair of single-coil Jazz Bass pickups to sound more like the originals. Gritty and growling, they have the tone that made the J Bass popular. The “Mid '60s C”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles and reverse, open-gear tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include 34” scale length, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate.
