Product Description

A veritable racecar of a bass, the Jazz Bass® guitar was born in the ’60s and became the favorite of players who put as many miles on the instrument as they did on their tour buses. The more it was used (and abused), the more it growled back and became even more comfortable. Fender’s Road Worn® ’60s Jazz Bass guitar delivers that aged look and feel. Designed with ’60s specs, including a nitrocellulose-lacquer finish, and built to look, sound and feel like it's got more than just a few miles on it.

The Fender Road Worn series is maligned by some because of the "fake mojo" of the relic process. If I hadn't had a chance to play one of these before buying I would have dismissed it as a messed up, overpriced instrument. The relic process employed by Fender results in a whole greater than the sum of its parts. I can't speak to all these instruments but when I played my RW Jazz side by side with American Standard Jazz basses and Standard MIM Jazz basses it beat them in nearly every respect. The neck on these basses really does feel "broken in", not just sanded. I've carefully sanded new necks on other instruments and the result does not feel like the smoothing and rounding performed on RW necks. The smaller vintage frets are more to my liking than the medium jumbo of the standard instruments. The thin nitro-cellulose finish on these basses feels completely different, almost organic, compared to the polyester finish on the American Standard and Standard instruments. Even the "Thinner Polyester" finish of the American Standard does not hold a candle to the feel of the nitro on the Road Worn basses.

Tone wise the RW has vintage Alnico pickups. In my opinion the output is slightly lower and smoother than the American Standard. It won't deliver as much "growl" as the American. On the other hand compared to the Standard Jazz MIM it sounds far warmer and less sterile.

As far as weight these are generally lighter than the MIM Jazz basses and about on par with the American Jazz basses.

Now keep in mind these basses look beat up. If you want an instrument that looks shiny and new this won't do it for you. If you care more about the feel and playability then this is the bass for you.

For me the RW series beats the American series for less money but they are definitely "worn" looking. I posted a couple of photos of my instrument in the customer photo section.
