Description

Modern Vintage MVJ4-66 Bass has the sound, look and feel of a 1960s vintage bass with added improvements and updates.

When you play this bass, you'll immediately notice the super comfy fast neck. You'll hear the even note response from the Torrefied Maple neck.

Classic vintage sound with punch and clarity is produced by the custom single coil pickups. Original vintage bass attack and decay is maintained by steel bridge with four grooved steel barrel saddles.

Put a set of flatwound strings on this bass and you’ll get the true Motown sound. No foam or string dampers are required.

    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!

    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.
