What we say:A few tweaks here and there were all that was required to make the new American Pro Jazz Bass. There hasn’t been much wrong with the design since it’s introduction in 1960 but never a company to rest on it’s laurels, Fender have introduced a few small refinements to ensure the American Pro Jazz Bass’s performance is optimal by today’s standards.
The bridge is now a HiMass Vintage styled model for an increase in sustain and the neck has graphite rods to reinforce the strength. The Modern C neck profile remains and the pickups are newly designed V-Mod single coils with alnico magnets to deliver that famous Fender tone that every bass player wants.
This is in no-nonsense Black with a rosewood fretboard.
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. Posiflex™ 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.
