'60s Vintage J-Style Bass With Modern Updates

The build quality of this bass is top shelf. It was designed to deliver a boutique instrument experience in a vintage style. The MVJ4-66 bass gives a nod to the original with improvements.

Vintage J-Bass Sound

  • Solid Alder body - the wood of '60s basses for authentic vintage sound
  • Passive custom wound fibre bobbin Alnico-V P single coil pickups - vintage tone with punch and clarity
  • Roasted Maple Neck

  • Improves stability and increases note sustain
  • Increases the 'speak' of the instrument
  • Neck profile is modelled after curated vintage instruments that are regarded as having the 'most traditional' neck shapes of the era
  • Vintage Style Steel Bridge

  • Steel bridge with grooved steel screw barrel saddles
  • Maintains note attack and decay of the original classic bass
  • No need to stuff foam under the strings
  • Old School Vintage Bass Mojo

    When you put this bass in your hands, it's like you're home. That classic sound is right there under your fingers. You'll also love the how fun it is to play this bass. The slim neck feels great and it's so easy to play. This bass is very responsive for any playing style; finger, pick, slap, thumb.
    Put a set of flatwound strings on this bass, play; you're there! The Motown sound.

    1. Jim – NL

      I recently purchased an MVJ4-65 fretless solely based on Dave’s recommendation and I have to say that I am extremely happy with my bass. The craftsmanship is top notch! The bass is light, well balanced and very comfortable to play. The neck is simply amazing, it may very well be the nicest bass neck I’ve ever played on. Its slim and fast, no dead spots and lots of mwah. Its easy to tell right out of the box it’s a quality bass. I swapped the stock strings for a set of Elrick’s and the thing just sings.
      Well done Modern Vintage, you nailed it!
