The Fender Standard Jazz Bass guitar is a superb rendition of one of the most popular instruments ever crafted. Taking its cue from its much-loved 60s predecessor, this model exudes sophistication and charms everyone with its effortlessly cool aesthetic. Fender has included a few subtle appointments that give this model an enchanting character.
The lean-and-mean Standard Jazz Bass body incorporates many of the original model’s classic Fender “firsts,” such as the offset waist that was designed to accommodate the playing position of jazz and blues' players at the time. The body is crafted using alder, a tonewood that has been a Fender favourite since the 1950s due to its prodigious tonal-balancing abilities, exuding warmth that is infused with a delicate crispness.
The ultra-slim, modern "C" profile maple neck isn't just a slender beauty, but it has also been treated to a tinted satin urethane finish, which accommodates a fast playing action that perfect for those who're looking to lay down some intricate licks. Paired with the maple is a rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 medium-jumbo frets that are decorated with black dot position inlays to aid in your fingerboard navigation.
The latest offering from Fender comes armed with two new Standard Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, and new vintage style Jazz Bass control knobs, giving you the best of both worlds and eras - vintage vibe and appointments with some modern refinements. Control is kept nice and simple, with individual volume controls for each pickup, and a master tone control to emphasise the frequency range you desire. Create a subtle blend of each pickup, or solo either one and let it rip. Easy!
The body is fitted with a 4-saddle standard vintage-style bridge with single-groove saddles to create a flush connection between strings and body. This helps to facilitate an improved level of intonation, and impeccable sustain. The standard open-gear tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with the utmost precision, allowing you to get on with what you do best.
The Fender Standard Jazz Bass guitar has led the way in design and power for decades, wearing its heart on its sleeve and enabling bassists to play with total confidence. The finish looks simply divine, and at this price it leaves more expensive models in the dust.
