About Fender Player Jazz Basses:
Launched in June 2018, the Fender Player Jazz Bass, also known as the J Bass, replaced one of the most popular Fender basses of all time, the Fender Standard Jazz Bass. The Fender Player J Bass has dual single-coil pickups and smooth playing feel. The Player Jazz Bass is an inspiring instrument with classic, elevated style and authentic Fender bass tone. Its powerful, rumbling sound is punchy and tight. You will find a growling voice matched with fast playability for a shot of creative inspiration. Primed for action in the studio, or on the stage, the Fender Player Jazz Bass can take anything you can think of, and anything you haven’t yet.
Respecting heritage while maintaining innovative spirit, the two growling Player Series single-coil pickups are packed with legendary Fender bass tone, turned up to 11 for modern ears. Volume controls for each and a master tone control are close to hand to shape the pickups’ powerful voice so you can easily craft your sound. The “Modern C”-shaped maple neck’s hosts a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets that are ideal for most playing styles, while the 4-saddle bridge is engineered for accurate intonation and easy action adjustment so you can tailor the feel to your preferences.
Other features on the Fender Player Jazz Bass include a 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, vintage-style disc string trees, open-gear tuning machines and a four-bolt “F”-stamped neck plate that marks this instrument as the real deal. When you need a bass that can help you get to the next level—one that has genuine Fender sound, style and feel—reach for the Fender Player Jazz Bass.
