Updated electronics, vintage bridge, and a rugged alder body enhance one of the best Fender Jazz basses yet.

The 5-string Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V delivers the modern features that bassists demand in a sleek, familiar electric bass design. An updated preamp circuit brings deeply exhilarating active and passive tone. Powerful-yet-quiet N3 Noiseless pickups present more clean headroom, extended EQ range, and tighter low-end response. The tonal options are vast, thanks to the active/passive toggle switch and passive tone control. These amazing electronics effortlessly handle the low B string with impeccable tone and seismic power. The classic Jazz Bass block fretboard inlays and binding present the Fender American Deluxe V bass in a rightfully classy light.

The bass is crafted with an alder body, a hard wood that provides clear tone, and lasting sustain. The maple neck with modern C-shape, 5-bolt neck plate, compound radius fretboard, asymmetrical neck profile, and contoured heel offer fast action, silky- smooth playability, and make the American Deluxe Jazz Bass extremely easy to play all the way up the neck. The high-mass vintage Fender bass bridge offers compressed and focused bass tone with more mid range punch. It retains the Fender articulation and sparkle, combined with vintage-style saddles to maintain a classic vibe. The combination of a steel plate with brass saddles produces the best possible Fender bass sound.

Pairing up these pickups with the EQ and volume controls provides that notorious Fender Jazz Bass sound that has mystified some of the world's most prominent bassists for decades.

Other features include Stealth "B" string retainer, tinted neck, rolled fingerboard edges, highly detailed nut- and fretwork, genuine bone nut, flathead screws on battery compartment (for easy changes with a coin or pick), gloss polyurethane neck finish, and a gloss urethane body finish to dress the Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-string in ultimate style and beauty.

            Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Electric Bass:

            Some one gently used this bass, their loss was my gain. I saw it on the web site and called in and spoke with a rep. After a short discussion the bass was on the way. Waiting like a child at Christmas time, due to extreme weather and delays it showed up late on a Friday night. Initial impression from the moment I saw the case till I had it set right was just impressive. I have seen some other review's about quality and this one - well was just plain nice. What an upgrade from the bass I played for the past few years. The neck is very comfortable for a five string and has a silky smooth finish. The pearled inlays are beautiful as well as the binding. The finger board offsets the color (wine) and the chrome tuners dresses it out. The electronics give a nice range of expression and of course allows you to switch between active and passive thus working flawlessly with other effects. The American Jazz 5 is a great upgrade, thank you Music 123 for the great price and service.

              Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Electric Bass:

              I've played a lot of basses as do most bass players. I play through a GK MB-500 head and I must say this bass has tones that cover the spectrum; from bright punchy tones to unbelievable growls that impress as well as any I've played! It does buzz slightly when you run actives and boost midrange, however I rarely ever turn the actives on; this bass doesn't need actives! It is my first Fender purchase, and it wont be my last.

              What a monster. . . . . . .

              Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Electric Bass:

              So ther'es 6 knobs and a active/passive switch on this bass:
              1) master volume
              2) pan pot (to separate or blend the 2 pick-ups together.)
              3) bass
              4) treble
              5) mid
              6) tone

              In passive mode, the only knobs that work are the volume, pan & tone. In active mode, all of the knobs work except for the tone control.

              My only complaint is that the volume of this bass drops quite a bit when you switch from active to passive mode. And, I don't care what Fender says, there's no such thing as "Noiseless" pick-up. In active mode, I can't boost the treble knob without getting a slight buzz. I think the electronics pick up the buzz of surrounding electronics, even lamps in my apartment.

              I don't think the neck is as thin as the passive American Standard Jazz V bass I've always previously used. I thought that was a little strange.

              I found if you boost the bass, cut the mid and just use the neck pick-up, you get a great "Latin sound" if you play with percussionists. Other than that, I just keep the pan pot in the center and boost the bass and mid.
