Product Description

Fender hit a giant bass home run in 1960 by introducing its Deluxe-model four-string instrument-the Jazz Bass guitar. With its sleek offset body; thin, fast neck and rich, growling tone, it was a raring, roaring racecar of a bass that quickly established itself as a must-have instrument.

The new American Standard Jazz Bass is an even finer player's instrument-a modern interpretation of Fender's classic instrument for today's players. Features include their new high-mass vintage bridge, a thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, new and improved Fender tuning keys that keep the classic look but are 30 percent lighter, a richer and deeper neck tint for a more elegant appearance, a great-looking glossed maple fingerboard and satin back for smooth playability, a new Fender-exclusive SKB molded case and a gorgeous new Blizzard Pearl finish option. This version of the Fender American Standard Jazz Bass features a maple fretboard for slightly brighter tone. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Fender products.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Absolutely unbelievable quality. Business as usual for Fender."
Sound: Quiet and punchy. No hum whatsoever. Feature: Great case and goodies inside. Strap, cable,tools(even a bumper sticker) Ease of Use: Great sound always comes easy from an American Fender product.(Do I even have to say that?) Quality: It's a USA Fender. Among the best there is. Value: I have owned $3,000.00 basses that didn't sound this good. Manufacturer Support: N/A. Never had a problem with a Fender product. The Wow Factor: I bought it. Charcoal frost metallic with maple. Beautiful! Overall: I will never sell it. American Fender Basses keep their value better than most.
Style of Music: Rock, Jazz

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Best fender bass since the 70's"
Sound: The sound is simply spectacular. Everything you could want out of a jazz bass. You can get a cool mellow sound out of the neck pickup, or a growl out of the bridge pickup. Easily the best sounding passive bass I have ever played. It just cuts through the mix. And the new bridge gives it a punch and clarity that did not exist in its predecessor. Feature: The best part about this bass for me is its simplicity. There are no active electronics or peripheral features; just an untampered jazz bass sound. But you can still get a huge range of sound out of this product. Ease of Use: This bass plays itself. The neck is so fast and smooth, the feel is just right. A beginner could get an amazing sound out of this bass. It's one of the fastest necks I've ever played. Quality: Its an American made fender, of course the quality is amazing. I replaced the white pick-guard with a black one (I own a black maple model) and all the screw holes lined up perfectly. The set up was absolutely flawless; i didn't need to tweak a thing. There hasn't been a single problem with this axe. Value: I've tried other more expensive basses, and this is far superior to any of them. I would have to say that the value is amazing, and even if I had twice as much money to spend I would still go for this bass. I prefer it to the deluxe models. Manufacturer Support: There haven't been any problems with the bass, so I haven't had to deal with fender. They were really fast to deliver though. I got this axe a week after I ordered it, and it had only been available for purchase for a day. The Wow Factor: The model I have is black with a maple fingerboard. When it had its original white pickguard, it looked pretty normal. But when I put the black pickguard on it looked so sexy. Fenders may have simple aesthetics, but they're still beautiful axes. Overall: When fender announced that they had redesigned the American series, I was unimpressed at first. I had played a few earlier American basses, and I thought how different could this one be. All I can say is that those little changes made a huge difference. The new high-mass bridge is the best thing fender has done in years. The neck finish is amazing, and the gloss maple fingerboard just lights up on stage. I honestly can't find any fault about this product, and I'm usually such a cynic about instruments!
