      A modernized classic with all the right moves from Fender.

      Fender's American Standard Jazz Bass 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 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

        The Fender Jazz bass is the definition of excellence. Mine was received in amazing setup condition. Very smooth to play, a professionals instrument, and the classic "Burp-y" sound of a Jazz Bass. Fender is known for their craftsmanship in their American lines, and this jazz bass is simply no exception. It is gold standard for any working professional, or novice wants to sound professional immediately. The action was so low, and smooth, that it made my naturally fast playing that much easier.

        As a musician for 20 years, I'm absolutely certain that you get what you pay for. Spend a bit extra, save for a few more months, whatever you have to do – just get this jazz bass when you're ready.

        From 2007- 2012, Fender really stepped up their game and make the best products they've produced in decades. That's why I was excited to try the "new and improved" AM jazz basses. But I feel as if the quality may be slipping again. EVery 2010 I played was perfect, yet all 5 of the new ones I played seemed to have slight neck issues. They also lacked the "solidity" of the older model. Also, in a A/B the custom shop pups don't sound as good as the supposedly cheaper ones. They have a bit more high mids but lack the warmth and depth. I hate to say it but they sound more like the pups in the classic vibe line. In fact, I doubt you could tell the difference between the new MIA and a Squier in sound or feel. It's still a Fender and it's still a Jazz ansd it's still the AMerican made, so it's a fine bass but I can't justify the price tag on this one. I'd suggest trying to find the pre-CS pup version. But that's just my opinion. See for yourself. You might not agree.

          Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

          Very happy with this bass. I researched it before I purchased it last February and it's exactly what I expected it to be. Great punch, beautiful tone, fast playing neck, and just really fun to play on. I've picked up my 5 string Ibanez once since I got this guitar and it just isn't as fun to play as the American Jazz. I also own a MIM Fender Precision bass which has a nice tone but doesn't have the same growl as the Jazz bass. If you are on the fence about buying this bass, let me tell you I love mine and would recommend it for any serious bass player.

            Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

            Let me start by saying that I have been playing guitar for 47 years, but just started playing bass out of necessity. However, I know good quality when I see/hear it.

            I have a 92 MIM Jazz Bass that cost me next to nothing, and I could have continued using it, but decided to upgrade to an Am Std. What can I say... this guitar is well built, beautifully finished, and has what I consider a classic Jazz bass tone - nice, thumpy lows, with that great metallic "tink" when the strings are attacked heavier. Like I said, I'm just starting out on bass, so I have yet to explore all the subtleties of bass playing, but I really don't think you can go wrong with a Fender American Standard, regardless of the model bass or guitar.

            I will note that this is the second bass I received. The first one wasn't setup close to what I felt should be the case, and there was significant fret buzz on the G string between the 10th and 12th fret. But let this be a testament to MF's customer service. I shipped the first one back (quite painlessly) with the prepaid UPS shipping label they provided, and got the new one within a few days.

              Love American Fenders, finally got a chance to buy
              one (Sunburst), slick neck, almost never have to wipe it down and then only need a clean washcloth to do so. Very pleased.

                          I have played a Mexican Standard Jazz Bass since 2005, and I joined a new band a couple years ago. Once we started gigging really heavily and got ready to record, I knew I wanted to upgrade to an American Jazz Bass. I picked up the Olympic White/ Rosewood one, and literally gigged with it straight out of the box. I love the neck on it, its so fast and comfortable with no buzz and perfect intonation. The biggest difference between my old JBass is the string-thru bridge. It adds SOO much sustain. The pickups sound great. I put Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkys on it and run it through an Ampeg SVT-4PRO head and vintage Kustom 2x15 cab, I can get the warmest rounded off bass tones from it, perfect for my style. I would recommend this bass to anyone that is ready to make the step up to a professional-quality bass. The Mexican JBass lasted me a really long time and I still keep it as a backup, but when it came time to upgrade, I could really tell the difference in quality.

                            why aren't there a million for review for this bass? It's one of the best out there. Today i tried this and the precision model at my local music store, and why both were excellent on their own terms, the jazz bass was just out of this world. The pickups had a much fuller tone and wider arrange of tones for that matter (to some extent the jazz could mimic some tone characteristics of the P-bass at times). This bass can sound great for anything from blues to funk to metal (though for fusion i would get the fretless model).Not only that but the neck and action are perfect. I cannot stress enough, DO NOT BUY THE MIM MODEL AND GET THIS BASS, this is the total package, but see if you can get one a little cheaper.

                              Why aren't there more reviews for this marvelous beauty? I tried it out at my local music store, and the precision model. Why both basses were excellent in their own terms, the tones the jazz bass could offer was just out of this world (to a certain extent it could kind of mimic some of the P-bass tones). You could get a sound for almost every genre (though for more fusion stuff get the fretless version.) Not only that but the feel is great; good neck and perfect action. I am telling you, do not settle for MIM, GET THIS BASS, but see if you can find one a little cheaper.
