A Jazz Bass Built on Decades of Excellence

The Fender American Deluxe Jazz Electric Bass is a top-of-the-line American-made instrument. It combines select materials with a tried-and-true design and the best of modern onboard electronics. If you're in the market for a J Bass, try one of Fender's finest.

Select Alder Body and Maple Neck

American Deluxe guitars are crafted from select alder and have a modern C-shaped maple neck with graphite reinforcement. The rosewood fingerboard has rounded edges and is bound to the neck. There are 21 medium jumbo frets and vintage-style block pearloid inlays. Neck heel has been contoured to allow for improved access to the upper frets.

Noiseless N3 Pickups for Remarkable Tonal Range

Modern electronics onboard the American Deluxe Jazz Bass offer a wealth of tonal capabilities. For starters, you've got two Noiseless N3 single-coil pickups which are quiet when you want them to be and powerful when you need it. There's a pan pot pickup selector which can be used to blend the neck and bridge pickup. Whereas most guitars have a 3-way or 5-way pickup selector switch, the pan pot pickup selector allows for continuous blending of the two pickups for endless tonal shading possibilities.

Active and Passive Pickup Modes

You've got three band EQ with boost and cut controls for treble, bass, and midrange. What's more, the American Deluxe Jazz Bass sports novel circuitry which allows for both active and passive pickup modes. There's an active/passive mini-toggle switch and an independent passive tone control knob so you can dial in just the sound you're looking for.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Over the Top Bass Guitar! "
Overall: I have only been plying bass for a few years now, but this bass is amazing. I knew I couldn't go wrong with a Fender anyway, so it did not disappoint. I don't have long fingers, so the neck is perfect and comfortable to play and the stretchy notes are much easier for me to grab now! Not to mention, the quality and feel are unbelievable as well. This was my first experience ordering from zZounds too! I will not go anywhere else with my next orders. The payment plan is laid out precisely and they packed the item perfectly and shipped on time. The zZounds staff was super friendly as well. Great experience all they way around.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fender American Deluxe Maple J Bass"
Overall: Buy it! Great Bass Guitar, superb craftsmanship, Flawless finish, Out of the box the intonation and action was set to Fender USA specs. I adjusted the action slightly and it plays so easily. Incredible Tone. Came with a Hard shell Molded case. A deal all by. itself. I have played MIM's Japanese Fenders also. They play great but the USA Fender is a cut above all of them. Came with strap locks,strap,cable and some case candy. I play it everyday. Spend the extra bucks and take the plunge. I did.
