Fender Custom Shop Pickups
For the first time ever, Fender has outfitted the American Standard series with high-end Custom Shop pickups. This J Bass sports a pair of '60s single-coil Jazz Bass pickups as used on many of Fender's top-shelf custom models. Like the first J Basses of the early '60s, the dual Custom Shop pickups give outstanding mid- and high-end presence for players looking to stand out in the mix. With upgraded pickups bringing all the classic definition of the J Bass sound, the American Standard is equipped for rock, funk, blues, country, and of course, jazz.
Classic Jazz Bass Playability
Beyond its legendary tones, the J Bass has always attracted players with its extremely ergonomic and comfortable design. The neck uses a comfortable C-shaped profile capped with a rosewood fingerboard and reinforced with posiflex graphite support rods. Other appointments include a high-mass bridge for increased resonance and stability, and a worn finish on the neck to give it a cool vintage vibe.
