Made in Japan Traditional series derived by combining the aesthetics of Fender’s traditional musical instrument production with the sophisticated craftsmanship of Japan. Fender’s orthodox DNA is a reliable Made in Japan quality. I will be resurrected. Made in Japan Traditional Jazz Bass® has a gloss finish basswood body. A 9.5-inch radius “U” shaped maple neck with 20 vintage-style frets provides a classic performance that is unique to the Traditional series. The 4-saddle vintage style bridge and the original pickups selected for the Traditional series produce realistic and musical vintage tones. Solid guitar craftsmanship and flexible answers to player needs are reflected in this series.
