Bass VI Jazzmaster

Bold Jazzmaster for Bass VI

Based on our ThickMaster for Jazzmasters this one has a thick, chocolatty growl that agrees with bass. Our Zero-Hum Jazzmaster pickups have risen to become the number one Go-To noise solutions for Jazzmaster and the same goes for these.

The thick, chocolatty growl imparts a desirable presence and the lively dynamics sound good for conventional bass sounds as well as modern virtuoso tap, slap and smack sounds.

** Alnico-K is a unique proprietary rod magnet developed by Kinman in 1985. It is Alnico-5 but has 40% less string pull than Alnico-5 so sustain is longer and there is much less clatter from string crash and no Strat-itis string warble.

* Fender and Stratocaster and Strat are registered Trade Marks of Fender Musical Instrument Corp, Inc. Kinman is not associated with FMIC but they kindly permit us to refer to their Trade Marks to describe our products.
