Gold foil pickups have an alluring quality to them that has kept many guitarists and bassists hooked on them dating back to the 1950’s. They were typically made for and placed in entry-level instruments and were known to be inconsistent in tonal qualities. Yet, they sounded and looked unique enough to be special and sought after, still revered by so many all these years later. Now, they can be wound consistently, and very clearly belong in more than just entry-level instruments. Fender has gone and taken full advantage of that with this brand-new bass guitar.
The Fender Gold Foil Collection Jazz bass is equipped with a gold foil single-coil pickup. It is warm, wide, articulate, and certainly a visual compliment to this glossy 2-color sunburst. The pickup is wired to a master volume and master tone that have aged white “witch hat” knobs that match the vintage vibes perfectly. Maple ‘60s “C” shaped necks with ebony fingerboard span across the whole collection. This J-Bass board has a 9.5” radius, and white pearloid dot inlays. A 4-saddle vintage-style bridge with steel saddles, 3-ply parchment pickguard, and matching painted headcap round out this tribute to guitars and basses of the initial “Gold Foil Era” nicely.
Whether you’re a sucker for gold foil pickups, the stylish aesthetic of the guitar bodies and finishes that house them, or just love a perfectly playable modern-day Fender, this Gold Foil Collection Jazz Bass has all of the above.
