OVERVIEW

Updated bridge and Fender-design tuners modernize this classic!

This American Standard Series Jazz Bass Fretless has a vintage body radius and contour for a classic vibe and feel. The body is rendered in premium ash or alder for optimum tone and sustain. Its rosewood or maple fretboard features detailed nut work and fret marker inlay work. The neck is graphite-reinforced and has rolled edges for a broken-in feel from the get-go. HMV Bridge (high mass vintage) 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, enhances top end. Socket head intonation screws are engineered for a tighter fit, and are now more stable. Features Fender®/Hipshot® tuning keys. The 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 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.

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.

FEATURES
  • Alder body
  • Graphite-reinforced neck with modern C-shape and satin polyurethane finish
  • Rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges
  • Open-back cast machine heads
  • 2 U.S. Jazz Bass single-coil pickups
  • Volume/volume/master tone controls
  • HMV Bridge (high mass vintage)
  • Chrome hardware
  • Thinner undercoat

It's the kind. Don't think about it; just get it.

Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Fretless:

I have the fretted counterpart to this model but had the frets taken out and maple strips put in their place. It is a huge sounding bass and the fretless version allows for so many opportunities for subtle, tonal nuances that it boggles the mind and the ear. Fender keeps getting better.The white lines for fret markers seem like a good idea to me, and to Jaco Pastorius, who also had a bass just like it. If it was good enough for him, I suppose it would be good enough for me.

Ugly White Lines!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Fretless:

I like these new Fender Jazz Basses. The only feature I do not like on these new Jazz Basses is the fretlines on the fretboard. I mean, it really cheapens the look of the bass. I play fretless and have owned 2 Fender Japan fretless basses from the 90's and the unlined fretboard looks awesome, and balances the look of the guitar. I mean those ugly white stripes ruin the whole fretless vibe. If you want fretmarkers stick to playing a fretted jazz bass. No lines please for 2011 Fender!I would buy one of these basses if Fender removed the fretlines. Other than that these basses are Fender's best since 1964.At least the useless S-1 switching is gone on the new Fenders.

Good playing bass

By Tucknfoldman

Ask me a question

Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Fretless:

I think this is a good playing bass when professionally setup. I do have one major problem with this bass and that is it comes with fret strips on the neck and this cheapens the looks for me and makes it look like a beginners bass. side fret markers are tolerable but for an Amer Jazz, you'd think Fender who assume most players know the fretboard or can manage with side fret markers. I really did not buy this guitar because of this.

Nice bass, set up well from factory. Quality is good (better than some of the past Fenders I have owned) A bit pricey but what isn't today. Would recommend.
