A beautiful 1964 Fender Jazz Bass guitar - four string. BASSes OF LIFE - https://www.pinterest.com/DianaDeeOsborne/basses-of-life/ - PHOTO: Bass Player Magazine on #Facebook - For #HISTORY of this guitar, see my pin https://www.pinterest.com/pin/384987468125335445/ - Soap bar shape pickups were designed to produce a more smooth sound for Jazz. This was first instrument to feature a dual tone circuit: So players could alternate between LEAD and RHYTHM with ease.
This instrument was part of Sonic Youth's arsenal but it got stolen in a big theft in 1999. It's a modified/frankestein Fender Mustang assembled from various parts. More info: http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/eq/gtr18.html See it live! http://youtu.be/_XFmxzCyJGg
