Created as the Yang to the Precision Bass’ Yin, the original Jazz Bass offered singing high end and deep growl, compared with the earthquake-like tones of its older brother, along with a body shape that emphasised its versatility and new direction.
Since the bass’ inception Fender have stuck to the principles of the original whilst working on its design over the years, improving its already incredible combination of strength, clarity and versatility. The Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Guitar 2012 offers all the improvements bestowed on its predecessors over the years whilst adding it own, with the inclusion of a pair of Fender Custom Shop '60s Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups.
The 2012 Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Guitar features the classic offset waist J-Bass body, carved from alder and finished with a thinner undercoat, to let the body resonate more, along with sporting a four-ply brown shell pickguard.
Joined to the body of the Fender American Standard Jazz Bass is maple neck, carved to the slim, fast, modern C profile, and strengthened by Posiflex graphite neck support rods. It has also been made all the more playable with its satin urethane back finish. Atop this is a 9.5” rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets and dot inlays, which lies between a synthetic bone nut and a high-mass vintage bridge.
The 2012 Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Guitar has been outfitted with a pair of pickups, the Fender Custom Shop '60s Single-Coil Jazz Bass. This addition brings with it the voice that fans know and love but with extra singing, snarling growl than ever, to offer a truly powerful bass.
