The JZ Bass

Subtly radical -  It's our take on the popular Jazz* bass recipe. It's tough to improve on the venerable J bass, but the result is a much more versatile, comfortable and playable bass. It features:

  • a shorter 32 inch fretboard for increased speed and playabilty and ZERO neck dive.

  • John East 3 band active boost and cut electronics with sweepable mid controls let you dial your bass into any room or setting.

  • M&V Atlas P style and Supertone J style pickups in the P and J bass locations yield all the classic sounds plus a lot more.

  • slim shallow C asymmetric neck profile and 1.5 inch nut on the five string version is super comfortable.

Although all M&V products are essentially custom instruments, our basic recipe usually includes:

  • Individually selected quarter sawn one piece maple neck.

  • One piece premium quality alder body.

  • Hand-cut unbleached Bison bone nut.

  • Hipshot Ultralight tuners.

  • M&V Atlas & Supertone J wide range pickup set.

  • Fender premium quality intermediate weight bridge.

  • Stainless Steel dual action truss rod.

  • Ultra thin lacquer finish.

  • Easy-access Gotoh battery boxl

  • Oversize strap buttons.

  • Choice of fretboard and inlay materials.

MSRP - $4100 as shown with 5A flame maple top over 1 piece swamp ash body, gold hardware, cocobolo fretboard and turquoise inlays. - base price $3650 - contact us for a price quote for your particular combination of options.
