The American Original Series from Fender replaces the successful American Vintage Series.

We all love original vintage instrument. The problem is most of them have been used a lot for the last decades and chances are thee will probably be issues in electronics, neck, truss rod, frets, etc. Sometimes these are minor problems but on many occasions these problems mean you cannot get the desired set up and/or there are annoting noises. That's exactly the reason for Fender to offer the American Original series: you get faithful reissues of time specific instruments, made by the same factory using the same materials and building method except quaility control is better than ever. What you get is an instrument that looks, plays and sounds the same as the original instrument but has no issues at all. And of course, you don't have to sell your car to buy it.

This is the Fender American Original 70's Jazz Bass and this is Fender's description:

Over the course of the ‘70s, the Jazz Bass entered its “teenage years,” changing its visual style and inspiring new playing techniques—such as slapping—which led directly to new, creative forms of expression. Its smooth feel and growly midrange, tempered with a bit of treble bite, made it a hero in recording sessions around the globe. The American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass updates the smooth playing feel with a modern-radius fingerboard, while retaining the classic Fender tone and style that made the Jazz Bass the tool of choice for creative bassists.
