The Pioneer Bass Page "Debuting in 1981 alongside the first Kramer wood neck guitars was the Pioneer bass. Clearly a refined copy of the classic Fender basses, the Pioneer sported some unusual features such as employing Jazz and Precision attributes and coil tap functions on the same basses. The body woods varied. The translucent models will be of ash and/or maple while the solid colors were mostly alder or poplar. All pickups were listed in catalogs as being JBX and PBX of unknown origins, probably Schaller. Hardware was mostly by Schaller also. All scale lengths were 34" and all Pioneers had 21 frets. " "The Pioneer Double "J" or Jazz bass was exactly what it was called...a Fender Jazz bass copy. Body resembled the Fender Jazz and sported 2 Jazz or JBX pickups. There was also, in keeping with the Jazz bass motif, a gold or chrome control plate holding 2 volumes and 1 tone and the imput jack. This model also had the 2 switches, one for pickup select and one for 3 way tone switching."
