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 V 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 the narrow-tall frets provide a familiar playing feel and perfect 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 V 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 Jazz Bass V Rosewood Fingerboard:

    I've seen and played many precision style basses with jazz bass necks. But I've never seen this reversed. Apparently, Fender is using the same style neck for the Professional series Jazz V and Precision V. I don't know about the 4 string models because I haven't played or seen either. I have a Professional series Precision V and I like very much. It feels, plays and sounds like a Precision should. When I got he Pro Jazz V I expected it would feel, sound and play like a Jazz bass. Well, it does sound like a Jazz bass but doesn't feel like one. I'm guessing Fender did this, in an effort to keep the price point down. The sound is there and the build quality is there but not the Jazz feel. This bass may be great for players who love the Precision bass feel but want the more flexible tones of a Jazz bass.
