Significant changes were afoot in 1974 for the Jazz Bass®. The bridge pickup had been moved about half an inch closer to the bridge only the year before, and 1974 saw the last of the four-bolt necks for quite a while. Further, the slim C-shaped maple neck was re-sculpted with a meatier U-shaped profile (and acquired a walnut ""skunk"" stripe), white fingerboard binding and pearl block inlays made their first appearance, headstock ""bullet"" truss rod nuts were first adopted, and black pickguards replaced their longstanding tortoiseshell predecessors.

The American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass encompasses all of the above and is the sole member of the new American Vintage bass lineup to offer a choice of maple and round-laminated rosewood fingerboards, each with white binding, pearl block inlays and 20 vintage-style frets. Other authentic features include a urethane-finished alder body (ash on Natural-finish model), three-ply black/white/black pickguard (three-ply white/black/white on Black model), new American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, upper-mounted thumb rest, vintage-style bridge with single-groove steel ""barrel"" saddles, '70s-style ""Fender""-stamped open-gear tuners, four-bolt ""F""-stamped neck plate, chrome pickup and ""F""-stamped bridge covers with vintage-accurate positioning, and more. Available in Three-color Sunburst, Olympic White, Black and Natural.
