The Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass guitar in classic three colour sunburst is a fantastic modern rendition of the beloved Jazz Bass, giving today's bassists everything they could want in a timeless design. Built to the consistently high level of quality that Fender are known for, the Jazz Bass easily caters to the demands of modern players, and a newly designed preamp circuit delivers deeply exhilarating active and passive options. The powerful-yet-quiet N3 noiseless pickups offer a greater depth of clean headroom and EQ range than ever before, making this model a force to be reckoned with.
The American Deluxe Jazz Bass features the sophisticated, contoured body profile that has made it such a favourite amongst professionals for decades. The offset waist design makes it just as comfortable to play in a seated position, as in a standing position.
The body is built using select alder, giving the bass the ability to handle tones delicately for a well-balanced output. The rumbling lows, bouncy mids, and sparkling highs give the American Deluxe and enviable timbre. The body has been treated to a classic three colour sunburst finish, showing off the natural grain of the alder, with a subtle coating of urethane to offer protection. A 3-ply black pickguard defends the finish from unwanted scratching or pick scrapes during performances.
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 rosewood fingerboard, with 21-frets that are adorned with 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 playing feel on the back of 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 offered by the N3 pickups is remarkable thanks to the noiseless design. Control comes in the form of a master volume pot, Active/Passive mini-toggle switch, and a 3-band active EQ with tone-sculpting power. If tonal versatility is what you’re after, then it doesn’t get much 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 stylish three colour sunburst finish is the one for you.
