The smooth-playing compound radius rosewood fretboard (9.5”-14”) has 20 medium jumbo frets and stylish white pearloid position inlays. Two brand-new dual single-coil Fender Select Jazz Bass pickups pump warm and full low end, snarling midrange and ringing highs.

  • A true player's instrument

    As reviewed by Kevin McCarty on 8/7/2013

    This is what Fender advertises it as - a true player's instrument. I've had this bass for almost a year now. I really wanted to work it out before I rated it. I play it through an Ampeg SVT-4pro and a 6-10 cab. First of all - the sound. Just like everything else about this bass, the subtle qualities are there to do anything you want. You can get anything from the Jaco jazz sound, an acoustic feel, a deep, bluesy walking bass to the famous Fender growl simply by playing with the volume and tone controls and where you play it with your right hand. These pickups do it all with more range and feel than the American Standard. Then there is the playability. The compound radius neck is awesome. I really didn't notice how awesome it was at first. After playing it for a couple months, I picked my American Standard up and was amazed at how much harder it was to play (I set both of them up myself to spec). The subtleties, speed, and ease of playing this neck is something I don't ever want to do without now that I am used to it. The look of the flame maple top is just simply a piece of art. When I bought this, I was taking a chance. The subtle differences, ranges and playability just didn't come through sitting in a music store. The difference in price didn't seem worth it, but I tried it anyway. Once you get it home and really get to use it and appreciate the subtleties, you won't want to go back to anything else. The better and more complex a player you become, the more you learn to appreciate this bass.

  • The best looking Jazz I've ever owned!

    As reviewed by roger gumbs on 3/28/2012

    I've been finicky with my last couple of purchases, but I'm really digging this bass. I'll say it looks like a million bucks, and the single coils sound really, really nice albeit the hum (which is even present with both pickups on full). Much thicker/fuller sound than any other single coils I've had. Apparently mine is the 86th one (according to the certificate it came with) big deal. The finish looks much better in person, and mine is thankfully much lighter than the promotional store pictures I've seen. It came set up perfect for my liking...not extremely low action or high...just right, and easy enough to play some quick fills. The fretwork was much nicer than I've had on my American standards. The bass is soooo light too, and came in weighing 8.8 lbs. It's the lightest bass I've owned...seriously. My only complaints are that the lacquer finish on the body and neck (nitro?) was a bit sticky...but a little ultra fine steel wool and polish cured that. It's typical Jazz bass noisy (shielding job would have been nice), and since they used a 3 piece body, the back should have been black. This is my opinion per the price compared to that of the American Standard. Do I still like my bass...Hell Yes! And...unfortunately, it is routed beneath the no clear pickguard for this baby...but the parchment looks sharp. It reminds me of a Les Paul with a flamed top and cream pickguard.

  • Great - if you sink more money into it

    As reviewed by Gibson Kennedy on 1/22/2014

    I love this bass but I couldn't stand the hum and buzz from the Fender Select pickups. When one or the of the other pickups was rolled off, the bass became a directional hum antenna. (BTW I have a Marcus Miller JB that behaves the same way.) Got a local GC tech to apply shielding to the pickup and electronics cavities but it made no difference. Sprung $179.00 for a set of EMG-JVX pickups and now the guitar is excellent. Also, as another writer observed, you will have to "scuff" the back of the neck with some fine steel wool because the lacquer is somewhat tacky. Once you get the action dialed in, it plays beautifully.
