A more comfortable neck and improved pickups for the working bassist.
Crafted in Corona, California, the American Jazz Bass delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender—along with new enhancements that make it even more inspiring to play.
The American Performer Jazz Bass includes the Yosemite single-coil pickups, designed for rich, expressive tones.

The “Modern C”-shaped neck sports a 9.5”-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 22 jumbo frets, allowing you to easily express yourself musically.
