A SEISMIC SHIFT

At Fender, we live and breathe electric instruments. We never rest—pushing craftsmanship to its limits, we 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.

FEATURES

  • Two Michael Bump-designed V-Mod single-coil Jazz Bass pickups
  • Slim modern “C”-shaped neck profile
  • Bone nut
  • HiMass™ Vintage bridge for increased sustain
  • Fluted-shaft tuning machines
  • Posiflex graphite rods for neck reinforcement
  • Includes Elite Molded hardshell case
V-Mod Pickups
V-MOD PICKUPS

V-Mod Jazz Bass pickups are modified versions of our classic vintage pickup designs. These single-coil pickups use alnico 5 magnets on the treble side and alnico 2 on the bass side to deliver classic tone with all the vintage warmth and crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend.

Slim “Modern C” Neck Profile
SLIM “MODERN C” NECK PROFILE

This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a slim, modern “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), 9.5” fingerboard radius and narrow-tall frets.

FRETLESS FINGERBOARD
FRETLESS FINGERBOARD

There’s nothing like the slippery, fluid and elastic tone of a fretless Jazz Bass. A distinctly classic Fender sound since the early 1970s, it’s in better form than ever today with the American Professional Jazz Bass Fretless model.

New Fluted-Shaft Tuning Machines
NEW FLUTED-SHAFT TUNING MACHINES

Wider at the top than the bottom, the fluted shafts force the string windings downward and keep them tight, resulting in a sharper and consistent break angle over the nut, creating increased sustain and better tuning stability.

Posiflex™ Graphite Rods
POSIFLEX™ GRAPHITE RODS

All American Professional bass necks incorporate Posiflex graphite rods to reinforce against movement that can occur with fluctuations the environment. Embedded beneath the fingerboard, they improve reliability on the road, in the studio or in your home.

Bone Nut
BONE NUT

An original-era Fender design element, a bone nut contributes to superior tone and performance. Many players consider bone nuts to be more “organic” sounding.
