At Fender, we live and breathe electric instruments.
We never rest—pushing craftsmanship to its limits, we
design, test and endlessly experiment to create the best
instruments on the planet. The Jazz Bass, a refinement
of concepts first introduced in the Precision Bass, is the
earliest example of this philosophy in action. Evolved
for today’s musician, the American Professional Jazz
Bass combines modern features and materials with
Fender’s craftsmanship and expertise to produce a truly
contemporary bass.
Speedy, powerful and articulate, the Jazz Bass quickly
carved out a niche for itself when it was released in
1960. The slim, ultra-fast neck and slick offset-waist
styling made it a favorite of bassists everywhere. Funk,
fusion, disco and, of course, modern rock all owe a life
debt to the fantastically versatile Jazz Bass.

Developed by pickup master Michael Bump, the brand-
new V-Mod single-coil Jazz Bass pickups use a carefully

selected blend of alnico magnet types for balanced tone
with authentic Fender sonic DNA. Designed for comfort
and performance, the slim modern “C”-shaped neck
profile feels just right nestled in your hand, becoming
one with you, while the narrow-tall frets provide a
familiar playing feel and perfect intonation. PosiflexTM
graphite support rods run the length of the neck,
adding stability to the neck while resisting warping. The
redesigned tuning machines use a fluted shaft, creating
the optimum break angle over the nut while keeping the
string windings tight for increased sustain and enhanced
tuning stability.
The best of yesterday and today, the American
Professional Jazz Bass is the latest form of electric
inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to
a legend.
