American-crafted quality from Fender, priced for working musicians.

The new Fender® American Special Jazz Bass bring you the latest in U.S.-built quality and value! With its slim neck profile, high-gloss finish, and Fender Greasebucket„¢ tone circuit, you get classic American Fender looks, playability plus dynamic and versatile tone.

The Fender American Special Jazz Bass begins with an alder body and C-shaped maple neck. A maple fretboard comes standard on the Black and Candy Apple Red models, with a rosewood fretboard on the Olympic White and Three-color Sunburst models. All models feature medium-jumbo frets.

Single coil alnico Jazz Bass pickups deliver legendary American J Bass sound, and Fender's Greasebucket tone circuit rolls off highs while maintaining low-end definition, ensuring you'll cut through any mix. Finishing touches include classic black plastic Jazz Bass knobs, vintage-style bridge and strap buttons, and a deluxe gig bag.
