The Fender Standard Jazz Bass Upgrade guitar is a popular, affordable classic. On its early ’60s introduction, the Fender Jazz Bass guitar immediately endeared itself to the music world, quickly becoming another Fender design classic and an indispensable element in the arsenal of many a bassist worldwide. The current model combines the greatest features from classic models, alongside modern appointments, in order to create a model that is better than ever before.
The lean-and-mean Standard Jazz Bass incorporates many of the original model’s classic Fender “firsts,” such as the effortlessly cool offset waist. The body has been crafted using alder, a lightweight and tonally balanced tonewood that is very generous with its low-end delivery, which is carried through with a forceful punch, but cuts through with enough high-end sparkle. The body has been finished in a stunning Arctic White finish, which is protected by a slender layer of polyester.
Fitted to the body is an ultra-slim, fast-action maple neck, shaped to the comfortable to play modern "C" profile. Paired with the neck is a sublime rosewood fingerboard, which bears 20 medium-jumbo size frets - spacious enough not to feel cumbersome, but never feels like too much of a stretch between frets - that are adorned with white dot position inlays. The maple/rosewood neck and fingerboard partnership guarantees that each and every note rings out with the utmost clarity through the power of the alder. The neck has been treated to a tinted satin urethane finish, preventing the build up of stickiness or tackiness, making it a dream to glide along.
For a bass that is renowned for its versatility, it's surprising that the electronics' setup consists of a standard single-coil Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge position, and a single-coil Jazz Bass pickup in the neck position. Each pickup has an individual volume pot, and a master tone pot controls both pickups. Whether you're playing upbeat dance-inspired riffs, heavy rock, punk, country - pretty much anything you can imagine -, the Jazz Bass has you covered. Simply plug in and play.
The body is equipped with a 4-saddle standard vintage-style bridge with single-groove saddles, creating a seamless connection between strings and body. Not only does this create the perfect foundation for optimising intonation and sustain, but ensures an anchored playing feel so you can rock out freely. The headstock bears the standard open-gear tuning machines, which work tirelessly to maintain tuning integrity.
Whether you're new to the instrument, or are a seasoned pro with years of experience behind you, the Fender Standard Jazz bass guitar in Arctic White would make a fantastic addition to any bassist's arsenal.
