The Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V Electric Bass Guitar in Champagne is a glorious modern-day rendition of the hallowed five-string bass. If you're a bassist who demands a versatile instrument that doesn't compromise on quality, then this is the model for you. Not only that, but the stunning champagne finish is nice to look at too.

Sophisticated Jazz Bass style

The cool offset design of the Jazz Bass was introduced to allow bassists to play in a standing or seated position with equal comfort. Built using alder, the body is lightweight and designed with deep double-cutaways to maximise playing comfort. The balanced tones produced by the body establishes a versatile palette to perform with, ranging from a deep low-end throb through punchy mids to articulate highs.

The body is protected by a gloss polyurethane finish, which adds longevity to the sublime champagne paint job given to this exceptional model.

Supple maple neck

The Fender Jazz Bass is equipped with a sturdy maple neck, which is shaped to the compound back shape with modern "C" to "D" profile for consistent comfort along the neck. A satin urethane finish ensures a smooth feel that is free from stickiness and tackiness. The heel-mounted spoke wheel truss rod adjustment enables neck alignment to be corrected with ease. The freshly designed American Elite neck heel accentuates the improved upper fret access whilst adhering to the sleek style of the Jazz Bass.

Married to the neck is a maple fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with black block position inlays to guide your way. The 9.5- to 14-inch compound fingerboard radius makes string-bending, slapping, popping, picking, and plucking as simple as can be. The addition of a 5th string doesn't detract from the comfortable playing experience, instead offering you a greater range to play with to extend your satisfaction.

4th Generation Noiseless pickups

The American Elite series of Jazz Bass are equipped with 4th Generation Noiseless pickups that offer vintage-style Fender tones with noise-free response. From crisp cleans to roaring overdriven tones, these beauties produce a dream-like soundscape for you to explore.

The Jazz Bass V is host to a robust 18-volt preamp with active 3-band EQ, which injects increased power for improved signal clarity thanks to increased headroom. The result is a confident output without unwanted noise from affecting the integrity of your tone. Control comes in the form of a Master Volume pot, a Pan Pot (pickup selector), a Treble Boost/Cut, Midrange Boost/Cut, Bass Boost/Cut, and an Active/Passive mini-toggle switch. Whatever style of music that you perform, if you can't find the right tone with this setup, you may never find it.


The body is home to a 5-saddle hi-mass vintage bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is equipped with Fender "F" lightweight vintage paddle keys with tapered shafts, which uphold tuning integrity with precision throughout the most demanding of performances. The lower bout is protected by a 3-ply aged white pearl pickguard from unwanted nicks and scrapes.
