With its offset waist and contoured body, the new Vintage Modified Jazzmaster® gives a nod to its iconic forbearer, but it has much more going for it that makes it truly 'modified.'
The top-loading hard tail bridge features string saddles that are adjustable for intonation and designed to have a 9.5” radius when sitting flat on the bridge plate. The bridge is anchored at the rear of the plate while the front sits atop height adjustment screws that can be raised or lowered to achieve desired string height/action, while subtle adjustment at the rear (anchor) achieves the correct bridge angle. Custom Duncan Designed™ pickups offer tones from glassy smooth to jangly rockin’ rhythm crunch, with a vintage-tone neck pickup and higher-output bridge pickup. Other features include '62 Jazz Bass® stacked concentric volume/tone controls, vintage-style tuners and a comfortable one-piece maple neck.
