First debuted at Winter NAMM 2019, the limited-edition Alternate Reality series features Fender’s tradition of purposeful innovation

Not many bass guitar designs have found wider favor around the world than the Fender Jazz Bass. Now, the Fender Rarities Flame Ash Top Jazz Bass takes the legendary J Bass sound, looks, and playing experience to the next level in an awesome American-made gigging and recording instrument with a stunning flame ash top, gloss nitro finish, and custom electronics. Your hand will wrap comfortably around the fast '60s C neck contour, as you deploy classic J Bass growl and old-school low end served up by a pair of Pure Vintage '64 single-coil J Bass pickups. The Fender Rarities Flame Ash Top Jazz Bass is available in limited quantities.

The Fender Rarities Flame Ash Top Jazz Bass wears a gorgeous vintage-style nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Lacquer finishes — standard back in the day — are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look amazing; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This bass delivers the look, feel, and sound of a lovingly cared-for classic — one that will only improve with age.

Ask any bassist who has spent time with the slim ’60s C-shaped maple neck profile on a Fender Jazz Bass, and you will hear a string of descriptors ranging from incredibly fast and silky to awesome and one-of-a-kind. With a nut width of just 1.5" and a luxuriously bound, 9.5"-radius ebony fingerboard with vintage-tall frets, this neck sits beautifully in the hands and features a touch and response dynamic that opens wide the doors of stylistic exploration.
