A modernized classic with all the right moves from Fender.

Fender's American Standard Jazz Bass scored a giant bass hit with its introduction in 1960. 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 instrument; a modern interpretation of a classic built for modern players.

Features include a high-mass vintage bridge, Fender Custom Shop '60s Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, improved Fender tuners that are 30 percent lighter while keeping the classic look, richer and deeper neck tint for a more elegant appearance, great-looking gloss rosewood fingerboard, satin neck back for smooth playability and Fender Tolex case.

  • Good modern Jazz

    As reviewed by CHRISTOPHER STOPA on 12/15/2013

    2011 model without the custom shop 60 pickups that come standard now on the American Jazz. Upgraded to the customs shop pickups and love the sound. Bass is a little heavier than my older jazz but feels solid and plays well. Would use it for gigs and recording. It is the traditional sunburst color and looks rich and beautiful. A good modern rendition of the Jazz bass line.

  • It grew on me!

    As reviewed by Nicolas Greenhalge on 10/3/2012

    I know its hard to believe and american standard fender jazz bass "grew on me" however before i owned one of these i had a squier vintage modified and i also had a squier vintage vibe. which i loved both, but traded in to get money for the american standard jazz bass. So, at first i was like, wow, did i just pay all this money to have a bass that sounds and feels very comparable to my past squiers? so, a few months go by, and i have a little bit more cash to spend on getting a back up bass. at this time i am happy with my american standard, but still wondered if i payed too much for this bass. So i went into a local music shop, who is an authorized fender dealer. I picked up a squier, and instantly i saw all the subtle difference that my american standard fender has. all i can say is wow. First thing i noticed is how solid the neck is on my american standard. The neck is so so much more solid feeling. the second thing i noticed, is buzzing. my american fender doesn't buzz at all! most of the squiers did. I guess the moral of the story is. There are a lot of little subtle things that make the american standards so special, and now i can really understand why they are much more expensive, from the neck, to the pick ups to the smoother machine heads to the high mass bridge and stung through option. all the way down to how smooth the body and neck is, even the pickups have smooth edges, where as the squiers seem to have a lot of rough spots. like the time wasn't put into it. I will say though, i picked up a nice squier p bass special that day. they actually don't make those anymore in the squier line. so that was a nice steal
