OVERVIEW

A modernized classic with all the right moves from Fender.

Fender's American Standard Jazz Bass V scored a giant bass hit with its introduction in 1960. With its sleek offset body; thin, fast neck and rich, growling tone, it was a raring, roaring racecar of a bass that quickly established itself as a must-have instrument. The new American Standard Jazz Bass V is an even finer instrument; a modern interpretation of a classic built for modern players.

Features include a high-mass vintage bridge, Fender Custom Shop '60s Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, improved Fender tuners that are 30 percent lighter while keeping the classic look, richer and deeper neck tint for a more elegant appearance, great-looking gloss rosewood fingerboard, satin neck back for smooth playability and Fender Tolex case.

FEATURES
  • Jazz Bass body
  • Modern C-shape maple neck
  • Rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets
  • Standard 4-bolt neck plate
  • Posiflex graphite neck support rods
  • Fender Custom Shop '60s Jazz Bass single-coil pickups
  • Chrome hardware
  • High Mass Vintage bridge (Strings-Thru-Body or Topload)
  • Includes Fender Tolex case

    Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass V:

    This is THE Fender Jazz Bass, the one that everyone tries to emulate. You can spend thousands more and not get a bass that has a better sound or playability. The fit and finish are perfect, the neck is butter, and the electronics are top notch. In the studio it has grear sustain, deep lows, and sparkling highs. Live it's pure thunder. This is the bass thaTt sets the standard for all others.

      Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass V:

      Overall very well built, the "blemished" classification was no problem: very minor marks here and there. But, for me, the sound was very bland, and I'd prefer a thicker neck, and was surprised that the string spacing was narrower than expected, about 17mm at the bridge.
