60th Anniversary Jazz Bass - Roadworn and more colours

Recommended Posts

I’d be tempted by the blue one if it didn’t have matching headstock, for some reason I just don’t like those.

£1299? Are these USA built at that price?

Nope, made in Mexico the PMT link has photos of the headstock rear.

Any one played one yet?

I have (the Firemist Silver one). Very impressive build and they sound great. The relicing was well done.

 I got it set up really low and if you like a good Jazz I'm sure you'd love them. The one I played was decent weight too.

Thanks i might pull the trigger on one 

Wonder if they are better or very similar to the fender flea jazz

Very similar. I don't recall them being so reliced as the Flea. 

The 60th Anniversary has a Pau Ferro fingerboard while the Flea has (or certainly had) a rosewood one. That seems to bother some people but I didn't find it much different personally. The radius is different too: the Flea has a 7.25" radius and the 60th has a 9.5" radius. 

From memory the frets are different on both: the Flea has vintage frets which I like, whereas the 60th anniversary has the more modern medium jumbo. 

I preferred the look of the Flea but preferred the sound and playability of the 60th as it felt closer to my other basses and I found I could get the action lower.

Just my own experience of course

 Tough call between the 2
