The fretless Fender American Jazz Bass approaches Custom Shop quality with its premium ash or alder body, slim graphite-reinforced neck with rolled edges, highly detailed fret and nut work, and U.S. Jazz Bass pickups. The 9-1/2"-radius rosewood fingerboard is inlaid with 20 white fretline markers. Also features an S-1 switch that changes the pickups from parallel to series when engaged, creating a fatter, wider, almost humbucking tone similar to that of a Precision Bass. The American Jazz Bass has a comfortable 34" scale and 1-1/2" nut width.

I special ordered an American Jazz Fretless. When I received it I noticed that the position markers were not in the correct spots. They are placed on the fret line markers which make them impossible to see. Also, the two octave markers were positioned where one dot was on the octave and the other was 1/2 step above. In 35 years of playing the Bass I have never seen that before. If that is suppose to be a new design, please go back to the old way. The S-1 switch is a good idea, however on this Bass when you push in the switch there is a popping sound. This Bass should have never left the factory. Needless to say I am taking the Bass back.
I love this bass. The only thing I was mad about was that they sent a white pick guard instead of the one displayed in the picture. They got it here in 4 days, though, so props on that. Flatwounds strings take a little bit to get used to, but overall a beautiful bass with exceptional quality and tone.
