Few bass guitars can lay claim to being one of the worlds most popular for over 50 years. Adding to this iconic line of acclaimed bass guitars, the Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar in clean black delivers the classic features that made this such a well-loved instrument and adds modern appointments to make it even more desirable.
Body of beauty
The Standard Jazz Bass uses the traditional recipe of alder for the body and maple for the neck. Alder is a finely balanced tonewood that offers a subtle low end, punchy midrange, and nicely delivered highs. The body is finished in a polyester which compliments the black finish and 3-ply white pickguard. The Jazz Bass was designed to offer a model that was just as comfortable to play in either a seated or a standing position, making this an exceptionally versatile bass whether in the studio or on the stage.
The neck is finished in a tinted satin urethane and shaped to a modern "C" profile. This ensures a fast, smooth playing experience with no build up of residue over longer performances. The neck plays home to a maple fingerboard containing 20, medium-jumbo frets and black dot positional inlays.
To deliver that full-bodied and customisable tone that the Standard Jazz Bass is capable of. This model comes fitted with a Standard Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge and a Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickup in the neck position. To shape your tone, you get master volume controls for each pickup and a master tone knob.
Further key appointments include a 4-saddle standard vintage-style bridge with single groove saddles for smooth sustain and standard open-gear tuning machines for rock solid tuning. The Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar in black has all ingredients of the original legend and is reborn for a new wave of bassists to enjoy.
If you're looking for a laid back, comfortable, and versatile performance partner for life, then it doesn't get much better than the Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar in Black.
