Since its introduction in 1960, the Fender Jazz Bass has been relied on by professional bass players of all musical genres for its rich tone and musical versatility. Upgraded for 2009, the Standard Jazz Bass incorporates the best of the old and new, offering modern single-coil pickups, shielded body cavities, medium jumbo frets, a vintage-style Fender bridge, three-ply parchment pickguard, and a '70s-era logo.
The freshly upgraded Standard J-Bass has a lot to offer besides a fresh coat of paint. From the frets to the pickups, Fender advanced the quality of the Standard Series. While still hand-built at the Fender factory down in Ensenada, Mexico, they now have a few choice improvements.
The inclusion of medium-jumbo frets gives the Standard Jazz Bass a more modern feel and makes them smoother to play. Made from traditional, nickel-silver, these are the same frets installed in American Series Fenders. All the Standard series axes also feature a healthy layer of noise-killing paint shielding in the body cavities. Combined with shielding tape applied to the pickguards and body cavity covers, it will ensure performances are a lot quieter.
And finally, every Standard Series Fender Bass will now include a gig bag, so you won't be forced to immediately shell out more cash for a case or carry it around in the cardboard box it was shipped in.

I bought this bass at a local shop in my town in a barely used condition. Actually, it was originally the store owner's backup bass to his more expensive models that he uses and he plays a lot of big gigs. My first impression that set it apart from all the other basses I tried was that the neck felt great in my hand and the body of the guitar fit snug and comfortable to mine. The width of the neck isn't too wide or too narrow either. I play a lot of electric guitars and a couple basses and none of them have felt as comfortable as this one. The hardware is very solid and well put together. The knobs turn easily without any pops or sounds, the pickups sound great and are pretty versitile for most styles of music. The bass I bought from the store still has the stock strings on and they sound much better than the strings that came with my ibanez. The action is great and the bridge is solid. It rarely comes out of tune and if it does it is only off a small fraction. Overall this is a great deal for what you are paying because it feels and plays very closely to more expensive models and the only difference is that the expensive ones have more bells and whistles. Definately a bass to check out for all skill levels!
I have used a 1964 jazz relic for 23 years, and after a severe breakage, it had become unplayable. At that time, this bass caught my eye, and for a great price. I brought it trusting that it would have the same quality craftsmanship as my previous fender, and I was not dissatisfied. This bass looked, felt, and played better than my old one. The only downside comes if you are an inexperienced player, due to the high action (large space) between the strings and finger/fret board. A true beauty and must buy for anybody looking for a jazz bass.
Fender does it again with the Tinted neck JBass but that is only the window dressing. With the proper set-up this base with stand with the best. The electronic adjustability allows the sound to be shapped to nearly anything you desite. This is a fantastic instrument at a mid price point.......
this bass has the most monster tone on earth. It can give any sound you want, and penty of it. I run this through my acoustic b100 and it is literally all I ever need it plays like a dream, and sounds exactly like the vintage fenders. if you have the spare cash, buy it as fast as you can.
A buddy of mine has this bass (I have the 70's jazz reissue) and it sure has that great Fender sound. Whatever kind of music you play this beauty will handle it with class. Great jazz neck & great jazz sound, a winning combo.
I got this bass yesterday, and there is nothing I can not play on it blues, rock and roll, funk it does it all. I especially like the maple neck and butterscotch blond finish which makes it look like a vintage. If you want a good sounding and looking bass, look no further because you just found it.
My brother owns this bass but I get to borrow it regularly. Very nice fit and finish and I highly recommend it if you don't want to spend a ton of money on a high-end Fender. Better than the typical MIM Fender, in my opinion. Feels very close to a vintage 70's bass, but a much better price tag.
Great feel, good sound, quality guitar. I played quite few basses over the years and always come back to the Fender Jazz.
After purchasing this bass, it became obvious that there was little set-up required for low action, and buzz-free playing. You will see some very subtle neck differences on "Standard" basses if you pick up and play enough of them. Overall, a very consistent product, and worthy of gig playing, or practice at-home!
I love this bass. It has great tone, a very nice sound and it's just super clean to play. It's got a very nice smooth neck perfect for those walking ska bass lines. It's also a Fender so you know its good quality, plus it looks rad!!
The Fender Standard Jazz Bass is a very nice guitar. The neck was very playable and it was very solid, no problems there. The clear coat wood finish looks amazing and with the black pickguard and chrome plate by the input this guitar is ready to rock. The only problem I had is that it sounds too new, not like a 70's standard jazz bass. But thats just me so I'd probably get vintage pickups. All in all a great buy.
This is by far my favorite bass I own! Its sounds & looks great! Great quality for a small price.
