Pre-Owned Fender Alternate Reality Sixty-Six

From Fender:

The Sixty-Six, so named for the birth year of the Jazz Bass and its six strings, fits perfectly in the Alternate Reality Series, which aims to dive into Fender's tradition of interesting body styles and tonal configurations and create uniquely compelling instruments.

"We wanted to think outside the box as far as Fender design," said Allen Abbassi, Senior Product Development Manager for Electric Guitars/Basses. "We want to try new shapes, different woods and different pickup configurations to offer something that you might not have seen from Fender before."

Like the supercharged Alternate Reality Powercaster, the Sixty-Six makes another bold statement in the line.

It all starts with a shrunken ash Jazz Bass body that sits comfortably for any guitarist and keeps traditional appointments like the unmistakable chrome control plate and knobs.

The tones of the HSS pickup configuration (with five-way switching) are truly flexible, as a humbucking bridge pickup is joined by two Player Series single-coil Tele pickups that produce pristine, well-defined tone.

"You can go from a nice, searing lead into clean tones that are quacky and nice with a single-coil," said Abbassi.

The maple neck boasts a "Modern C"-shaped profile with a 9.5”-radius fingerboard makes it easy to bend notes wide without “choking."

And the vintage-style tuning machines and synchronized tremolo only add to the Sixty-Six's classic vibe.

All in all, the sixty-Six packages the sound, feel and look Fender is famous with modern, player-centric features perfect for the stage.

 

 

This guitar is in excellent condition and has undergone a full setup and inspection from our in-house luthiers. The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and shows only lighter fretwear. At just under eight pounds, it's got a great balance and weight for its unusual body size.... and it sounds killer! 

Comes with hard shell case, black pickguard/knobs and extra hardware as pictured. 

 

As always, this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
