What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
C-shaped neck profile Comfortable, rounded oval shape
Posiflex graphite truss rod Light weight, 2-way adjustability
Fender High Mass Modern bridge Greater sustain, tuning stability & resonant mass
American Standard Jazz Bass pickups Full, balanced tone with midrange punch
The American Standard Jazz V is an excellent choice for players in need of the extra bass growl of a five-string with the familiar tone and feel of a Fender. Updated, this five-string carries all the classic tone of a '60s J Bass with the latest in Fender performance and construction. With a super comfortable neck, excellent string stability, and the punchy tone of two American Standard J Bass single-coils, the American Standard Jazz V is a modern classic five-string in the making.

Extreme Playability

The American Standard Jazz V has been specifically catered to the needs of modern players with a comfortable body and ultra-playable neck. Since its introduction in 1960, the Jass Bass design has offered bassists outstanding balance and comfort which has been seamlessly expanded with the addition of a fifth string. The neck is in a smooth C-shaped neck profile with a comfortable rosewood fingerboard allowing easy access all up and down the instrument. As seasoned five-strings players know, what good is a fifth string without neck that lets you reach it?

High-end Fender Components

This five-string wields two powerful American Standard single-coil pickups which deliver copious amounts of classic Jazz Bass clarity and punch. The upgraded high mass vintage bridge optimizes resonance through the bass as does the thinner undercoat finish. The Jazz V also includes posiflex graphite neck support rods, sturdy hipshot vintage tuning keys with tapered shafts, and a molded hardshell case.

Features:

- Dual American Standard Jazz Bass single-coil pickups
- Ultra-comfortable neck in modern C-shape with smooth rosewood fingerboard
- Posiflex graphite neck support rods
- Updated high mass vintage bridge for enhanced sustain
- Fender/Hipshot Vintage tuning keys with tapered shafts
- Included hardshell case

For five-string veterans and first-timers alike, the American Standard Jazz V makes an outstanding addition to any bass arsenal. Bold bass sounds and seamless playability combine making this one of Fender's finest five-sting efforts to date.

zZounds Expert Review
For my hands, the Fender American Standard Jazz V bass is one of the most comfortable 5-strings out there. I find that it has a perfect balance of a comfortable taper, without the strings jamming too close together. This also made it super easy for me to slap. This bass was very versatile, which is something I look for immediately in a bass. I was able to lay down funk grooves, play rock riffs, and walk jazz changes all with a tiny amount of tweaking. Final word? The Fender Standard Jazz V bass is a great, well-rounded bass perfect for the modern bass player's needs.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "fender american standard 5 string"
Overall: Just got my bass. It was ready out of the box. Just tuning the strings. Great bass. Lot's of tones and voices. I play rock and jazz and r&b. I can use this bass for all my music. The quality of this bass is amazing solid. Found a blister on the tuning peg for my g string. other than that it is perfect. The setup for this bass was great no need to do any of that. The neck is fast and smooth and looks great. The sound is clear and the B string is tight. (some b strings are to loose and wobble lose it's tone.) All around i will never get rid of this bass.
