Updated bridge and new Fender design tuners modernize this classic!

The Fender American Standard Series Jazz Bass has a vintage body radius and contour for a classic vibe and feel. The Jazz Bass's body is rendered in premium alder for optimum tone and sustain. Its rosewood or maple fretboard features detailed nut and fretwork. The neck is graphite-reinforced and has rolled edges for a broken-in feel from the get-go. HMV (High Mass Vintage) Bridge increases sustain, provides punchier tone, beefier looking plates and 3/8" diameter vintage saddles. String height adjustment screws have nylon patches for a tight fit that won't vibrate loose.

A 12-gauge cold rolled steel plate machined brass backstop increases mass and enhances top end. Socket head intonation screws are engineered for a tighter fit, and are now more stable. The J Bass features FenderĀ®/HipshotĀ® tuning keys. They work great, and are 30% lighter, minimizing neck dip. Classic 20:1 tuning ratio, cast zinc with aluminum string posts and mounting nuts, and steel clovers. Brass worm gears, steel worm drives.

With a thinner undercoat, the Fender Jazz Bass body breathes easier and has improved sound (more wood influence). Neck pocket paint buildup has been reduced by 40%, greatly improving the wood-to-wood connection/reaction.

The included SKB rectangular design case, exclusive to Fender, has TSA recognized and accepted locks. Fiberglass reinforced nylon trigger release latching system, indestructible cushioned rubber over-molded handle with flush lock out. Injection molded feet and exclusive arched stacking system.

Best for the money

Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

I came across my black and maple beauty at the store a few months back and fell in love. I've played on Fender American Standard Jazz basses before but was never wowed in the way I was with the 2008/2009 model. Far superior workmanship, immaculate setup and excellent fret work. The neck pocket is tight and the new high mass bridge sings tone for days. I find the tone of the maple fretboard superior than the rosewood as it seems to bring out the growl a little better. A guitar has never felt or sounded so good as this one. I couldn't help but take it home with me. I like it so much that I'm saving up for another.

The Last Bass You Will Buy!

By Bassman Bob

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

Actually, I own 3 Fender Basses and have been playing for 25 years. I have a USA 50th Limited Edition P-Bass, a Mexican Standard Jazz, and an American Standard Jazz. There is no bass on the market that has a neck like my USA Jazz! Simply a joy to play, and the classic "Fender Growl" that comes from this beauty! When I die, this one's going in the casket with me. It rocks.
