Overview

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.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

    I've had an American Deluxe P-Bass for about 8 years. I decided it was time for something new and I always wanted to get an American Jazz Bass at some point. It plays amazing! The three tone burst looks unbelievable as well. I will play this Bass for years to come.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

    This bass is no joke. I have 10 different USA made basses and I can throw them all away now that I have this bass. The custom shop pickups have amazing sound and lots of punch. My opinion is this bass will work for all types of music.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

    I have having trouble with neck adjustment ever since purchased my 2011 Fender Jazz Bass. It seems as though the neck woods were not properly aged. Now the truss rod is at it's max. A real disappointment. It was strung with heavy nickel strings originally and the neck has a content bow in it.

    Neck trouble right from the start.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

    I bought my first Fender Jazz Bass in 1974 and enjoyed it for years. I have purchased and played many other bass brands and decided to purchase a new Jazz Bass in 2011 at GC. The bass was strung with heavy(110) on the E. Have had nothing but trouble adjusting the neck. Have had it to two different luthiers. Now the truss rod is at it's max and still cannot be set up properly. I am very disappointed. I hope my bass was just a lemon because I am very concerned about Fender quality.

    Good modern Jazz

    By CHRISTOPHER STOPA

    from Portland, Oregon

    Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

    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!

    By Nicolas Greenhalge

    from Massachusetts

    Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass:

    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
