The Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass guitar delivers the modern rendition of the much-loved classic that caters to the demands of today's musicians perfectly. With a newly designed preamp circuit that delivers a deeply exhilarating active and passive tone, and powerful-yet-quiet N3 noiseless pickups that offer a greater depth of clean headroom, and EQ range than ever, this model is a force to be reckoned with.
The American Deluxe Jazz Bass has been shaped to the classic double-cutaway design, with sleekly designed contours that enable the guitar to rest snugly as you play. The body is built using premium ash, giving the guitar well-balanced tonal offerings. The scooped middle frequencies, tight low end, and a quick attacking high end all give the Jazz Bass a dreamy tonal palette to play with. The body has been treated to a natural finish, showing off the natural grain of the ash, with a subtle coating of urethane to offer it protection.
Fitted to the body is a maple neck that has been shaped to the slender and comfortable modern "C" shape profile. Paired with the neck is a bound maple fingerboard, with 21-frets that are adorned with black pearloid black inlays to guide your way in style. The neck has been treated to a gloss urethane finish on the front, whilst a satin urethane finish prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from diminishing the smooth, seamless playing feel across the neck.
The Noiseless N3 single-coil Jazz Bass pickups - fitted in the neck and bridge positions - translate the timbre of the tonewoods with the utmost transparency. The breadth of the dynamic range on offer is staggering thanks to the noiseless design, enabling you to play as deftly as you wish, attenuating the output with ease. Control comes in the form of a master volume, Active/Passive mini-toggle switch, and a 3-band active EQ with incredible tone-sculpting power. If tonal versatility is what you’re after, then it doesn’t get better than this.
The 3-saddle high-mass vintage bridge ensures a seamless connection between strings and body, creating a secure playing feel and guaranteeing intonation remains at an optimum level. The Fender lightweight vintage-style tuning machines with tapered shafts offer smooth tuning adjustment, whilst remaining firm and true during even the most energetic of performances.
If you’re looking for a bass that plays like a dream, has a huge dynamic and tonal range to explore, and carries it all off with style and finesse, then the Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass guitar with its gorgeous natural finish is the one for you.
