OVERVIEW

The best of yesterday and today.

Pushing craftsmanship to its limits, Fender design, test and endlessly experiment to create the best instruments on the planet. The Jazz Bass, a refinement of concepts first introduced in the Precision Bass, is the earliest example of this philosophy in action. Evolved for today’s musician, the American Professional Jazz Bass Fretless combines modern features and materials with Fender’s craftsmanship and expertise to produce a truly contemporary bass.

Speedy, powerful and articulate, the Jazz Bass quickly carved out a niche for itself when it was released in 1960. The slim, ultra-fast neck and slick offset-waist styling made it a favorite of bassists everywhere. Funk, fusion, disco and, of course, modern rock all owe a life debt to the fantastically versatile Jazz Bass.

Developed by pickup master Michael Bump, the brand-new V-Mod single-coil Jazz Bass pickups use a carefully selected blend of alnico magnet types for balanced tone with authentic Fender sonic DNA. Designed for comfort and performance, the slim modern “C”-shaped neck profile feels just right nestled in your hand, becoming one with you, while white line fret markers offer unobstructed playing feel and help with intonation.

Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting warping. The redesigned tuning machines use a fluted shaft, creating the optimum break angle over the nut while keeping the string windings tight for increased sustain and enhanced tuning stability.

The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Jazz Bass Fretless is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Fender American Professional Fretless Jazz Bass Rosewood Fingerboard:

    this is a great choice for a mid-price fretless bass. excellent workmanship and the neck is very fast. some people might like a thicker neck. you usually don't find the american professional fretless in stores. The fretted versions are everywhere, however, and you can get a good feel for the neck playing the fretted ones in the stores. The pick ups were a pleasant surprise. I may not replace them after all. I did replace the white pick guard with a black one. sonic grey color is awesome!
