) tone is brighter and richer in the midrange and treble with less emphasis on the fundamental harmonic than the Precision Bass. The sound of the Fender Jazz Bass has been fundamental in the development of signature sounds in certain musical genres, such as funk, disco, reggae, blues, heavy metal and jazz fusion.

First introduced in 1960 as the Deluxe Model, it was renamed the Jazz Bass as Fender felt that its redesigned neck, narrower and more rounded than that of the Precision Bass, would appeal more to jazz musicians.

The Jazz Bass has two single coil pickups with two pole pieces per string. This gives the bass a stronger treble sound to compete with the Rickenbacker bass, which was introduced in 1957 and had been famously “bright.” As well as having a slightly different, less symmetrical and more contoured body shape (known in Fender advertising as the “Offset Waist Contour” body), the Jazz Bass neck is noticeably narrower at the nut than that of the Fender Precision Bass. While the Precision Bass was originally styled similarly to the Telecaster guitar (and after 1957, the Stratocaster), the Jazz Bass’ styling was inspired more by the Jazzmaster guitar, with which the Jazz shared its offset body and sculpted edges that differentiate it from other slab-style bass bodies.
