The Fender Starcaster Jazz Bass is a great choice for beginning bass players with ambition. It's based on the classic 1960s Jazz Bass that has been the choice of some of the world's best players.
The lure of the Jazz Bass
The Jazz Bass has a tone that is bright with rich midrange. It's perfect for players who want to be more forward in the mix and is ideal for the bassists of smaller bands or power trios. Geddy Lee of Rush and Jaco Pastorius are two standout bassists known for their preference for using Fender Jazz Basses.
What makes the Jazz Bass special
Three features distinguish the Jazz bass from a Fender Precision bass”the neck, the pickup configuration, and the contoured body The fast-action neck of the Starcaster Jazz Bass is narrower and more rounded than the Precision, encouraging rapid runs and causing less hand fatigue. Dual single-coil pickups supply a wider variety of tones with a potentially brighter sound than the Precision Bass. Individual volume controls and a master tone are available to blend the two pickups and dial in just the right sound for the job. Finally, the offset body is extremely comfortable and well-balanced.
It all comes togther
Playability, sound, and comfort. The Starcaster Jazz Bass has everything the future virtuoso requires to be inspired and, with dedication, to join the bass playing elite.

Comments about Fender Starcaster J Bass:
This is a very nice bass for any player or beginner. For the price you can't beat it for practicing. If it gets damaged, it's not like you are out $1K or more. This is a Fender labeled product. You can't touch a Rogue, Dean, Squier or other low end instrument for this kind of price. I got mine while it was 99, but even at 199 it is still a great jazz bass. Excellent for practicing, jamming, small venue performances, recording and more. Looks as nice as higher priced Fender bass guitars and the sound is very good. It's easy to use and the controls are smooth and do not have any looseness in them.
