'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. Colin Baxter

      When John Files and master luthier Rob Elrick teamed up to design and develop this boutique bass, they hit a grand slam homerun. I have had my bass now for twenty months and have had absolutely no problems what so ever with it. It stays in tune exceptionally well and the torrified neck is extremely stable. I have gone through two Canadian winters and two very humid summers with no problem or adjustment necessary. In my opinion, you can tell how good the woods are tonally by playing it unplugged, this bass sounds amazing acoustically and off the charts amplified. Playability is superb and I have never experienced any neck dive. If you want a reliable, extremely well made, great to play, sounds incredible bass at a phantastic price, then get a Modern Vintage Bass. The bass is unquestionably 110% boutique.

      One of these beauties just arrived – some Covid-19 retail therapy. Dave knows me and knows I’m fussy. I took a leap of faith and bought this sight unseen relying only on the limited reviews, specs and Dave’s endorsement. All I can say is “Wow”. This will takes its place along side my boutique basses and feel right at home. If you’re in the market for Fender Jazz Professional – don’t do it. This bass is far superior in every way. I think it’s priced at about 50% of what it’s worth!

    3. Colin Baxter

      I own this bass and without a doubt it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The play-ability is amazingly smooth and effortless. The tone is exactly how a J type bass should sound. This is quickly becoming my go to bass and I have some pretty high end boutique basses. I will give a more in depth review after I have this gorgeous bass for a few weeks or so. I do believe that I am the first person to purchase one of these basses.
