Jeff Kavanaugh JK Guitars Vintage J Classic Jazz Bass
Regular price $2,999.00
In the shop as part of our "Local Showcase" program. This exquisite bass guitar comes from the workbench of local artisan Jeffrey Kavanagh (JK Guitars and Basses).
This Vintage J Classic is modeled after Jeff's very own 1975 Fender Jazz Bass and the vintage vibe is evident, but this is much more than a re-creation - it is a true elevation of the J-styled bass.
Featuring a one-piece Honduran mahogany body, birdseye Rock maple neck and pau ferro fretboard with mother of pearl fretmarkers, this J is finished in tru-oil from top to bottom.
Schaller bass tuners, bone nut, Hipshot A-style high mass bridge and Stew-Mac #150 frets round out the package. The electronics package on this bass are equally impressive - Dawgtown handwound Vintage Jazz Bass A5 pickups, CTS 250k pots and genuine Russian paper-in-oil caps.
Come see this one - Jeff has crafted one of the finest bouitque basses we have played and we are excited and honored to share it!
