Overview

5-string Jazz Bass with dual single-coil pickups.

We've been really excited by the Fender's Player Plus Series. The concept of taking the popular Player Series and adding features from some of their top-tier USA-built guitars is, we think, genius. The Fender Player Plus Jazz Bass V takes advantages of some of these premium features to create an instrument that we think you'll love, whether you're a touring pro, a serious enthusiast or just someone who wants a great bass to play. With Fender's latest generation noiseless pickups, a 3-band active EQ, and other premium touches, the Player Plus Jazz Bass is a great choice for players who care about their sound.

Comfort Is Key

The neck is, arguably, the most important part of any electric guitar or bass. It's where you connect to the instrument, and its comfort and playability are what determine how you approach your playing. This is where the biggest upgrades for the Player Plus Jazz Bass V happens. It still starts with a traditional 34" scale, but a new, flatter 12" fingerboard radius makes for quicker, easier playing. Rolled edges add to long-term playing comfort. 20 medium-jumbo frets help make for both precise intonation and easier fretting.

Actively Great

Next to the neck, most players look to the pickups. Great pickups are the key to any electric instrument's tone, and the Player Plus Jazz Bass V is loaded with the latest generation of Fender's Noiseless Jazz Bass pickups. These pickups can go from smooth and crystal-clear to growling and aggressive while ignoring any background hum, carrying the signature Jazz Bass tones to a new expanse of tonal versatility. Next, Fender's 3-band active EQ has cut and boost for highs, mids and lows, making it easy to dial in precision tonal settings. When you want to go passive, just flip the mini toggle switch and you can bypass the EQ altogether, while still getting the benefits of noiseless pickups

Ooh, Those Curves

One of the most distinctive things about the Jazz Bass is the smooth curves of its distinctive offset body. The Player Plus Jazz Bass V carries on that tradition, with a variety of classic Fender finishes plus a new finish, exclusive to the Player Plus line—a stunning linear burst finish called Belair Blue. Whatever finish you choose, your Player Plus Jazz Bass will stand out in any playing environment.

Rock-Solid Foundations

You count on your bridge for three things: sustain, precise intonation and the resonance that comes from strong coupling to the instrument's body. With the Fender HiMass bridge, you Player Plus Jazz Bass V delivers all three big time. The combination of the cast base, easily adjustable chrome-plated zinc saddles and a solid attachment to the body to transfer vibration from the strings keeps the string vibrating longer. The classic Fender open-gear tuners have always been a touchpoint for tuning stability, and you can't beat their simplicity and durability.

The New Classic You Need

The thing that has us most excited about the Player Plus Jazz Bass V is the combination of top-level features and playability in a bass that's easily affordable for any serious player. If you've been looking to step up to a bass that's great for live playing or recording, looks great and brings amazing value to the table, you can't go wrong picking one up.
