Released at the same time as the Jazzmaster guitar, the J-Bass was designed to appeal to Jazz musicians, with features such as a more contoured body and thinner neck and narrower nut to allow faster playing.
The standard Jazz Basses are equipped with two single-coil pickups. The sound of the J-Bass is a bit more ‘punchy’ than the P-Bass, with more midrange growl and top-end for making those bass runs you worked so hard to get down be heard through the band.
