The sleek curves and punchy tones of the Fender Jazz Bass have made this a go-to model since 1960. For the version of the American Standard J Bass, Fender has outfitted this classic with a pair of stellar Custom Shop '60s Jazz Bass pickups. All the signature J Bass brightness, balance, and style shines through in high-form making this a fantastic choice for bassists of any genre.

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.

I've wanted an American Jazz Bass for a long time. In particular I was looking for a 2012 Candy Cola bass with a rosewood fingerboard, and these guys had it! The bass shipped out the day I bought it, and it arrived a day ahead of schedule. I'm really pleased with ZZsounds shipping. As for the bass, it's incredible! The finishes on both the body and the neck are very nice. The satin on the back of the neck is smooth and glassy. The fingerboard feels great, and the factory set up was pretty great too. The Jazz Bass has two custom shop pickups, (2012 feature for all American Fenders) and they have massive sound, It's very round and full, not tinny or nasally at all. I'm going to change the strings however, because the stock strings just aren't my cup of tea. Try them first, see if you like them. As for me, I can't wait to slap some D'addarios on and play for days. Great bass.
