Fender American Deluxe Maple J-Bass

Fender's American Deluxe Jazz Bass delivers the modern features that bassists demand in a sleekly familiar design. A powerful preamp circuit delivers deeply exhilarating active and passive tone, and powerful-yet-quiet N3 noiseless pickups present more clean headroom and EQ range than ever.

This version of the Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass features a maple fretboard for slightly brighter sound and faster action.

Awesome bass and excellent service as usual from zZounds.com! I got to pick the exact bass I wanted from 6 serial numbers and it arrived fast and in perfect condition. Tuned it up and away I went. This is the second bass I've purchased here and I wouldn't hesitate to order another guitar in the future. Oh yeah, the Jazz bass is beautiful. It is my first Fender bass and it fits like a glove. Love the block inlays and black binding around the neck. Active/passive switch is a great feature. Satin finish neck makes for smooth sailing. This bass has that growl I've been looking for.
