Speedy, powerful and articulate, the Jazz Bass quickly carved out a niche for itself when it was released in 1960. The 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Jazz Bass combines modern features with a stunning figured maple top to create an instrument that looks as beautiful as it sounds.

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 while the 20 narrow-tall frets provide a familiar playing feel and perfect intonation. The four-saddle HiMass™ Vintage string-through-body bridge features nickel-plated brass saddles for a touch of extra ‘zip’ in the tone.
