Luthman Introduces Jazzette Bass

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Fender Jazz bass, Luthman has released the Jazzette bass. Available in 4, 5, and 6-string models, the Jazzette is not merely a copy of the icon, but a new design created with a “Luthman’s eye.”

Luthman Jazzette

The body is your choice between alder or ash, with a custom upgrade option for more exotic tops. The neck is maple, with either a Rosewood or Maple fingerboard and an ebony nut. The bass comes loaded with 2 Delano single coil jazz pickups, but Luthman offers either active or passive electronics, depending on your preference.

The Luthman Jazzette has a base price of €1450 (approximately $1,978 USD at press time), with the option of upgrading. For more info, visit the Luthman Jazzette website.
