Fender

Description

Crafted in Corona, California, the American Jazz Bass with maple fingerboard delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender—along with new enhancements that make it even more exciting to play. It’s available with either a maple or rosewood fingerboard.

There’s comfort in style
The “Modern C”-shaped neck sports a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard that’s comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 22 jumbo frets, allowing you to easily express yourself. ClassicGear tuning machines with tapered shafts offer stable tuning, while the silver ‘70s logo harkens back to the days when bass players moved center stage.

A bass made to be played
The alder body on the Performer Jazz is contoured to perfection and comes in a choice of classic colors. The fit and finish is impeccable and makes for an instrument you’ll be inspired to pick and play, day after day.
 
Low end for any venue
The American Performer Jazz Bass with maple fingerboard includes the Yosemite single-coil pickups, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac coating that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. 

The American Performer Jazz Bass also features Greasebucket tone circuitry that lets you shape your highs without adding bass, preserving your sound. With the Fender Performer series there has never been a better time to own a Fender Bass. Includes gig bag.
