Fender

Description

Since its debut more than 60 years ago, the Fender Jazz Bass had undergone constant refinement to meet the
needs and desires of the working musician. The Fender American Professional II Fretless Jazz Bass may be one of the most complete evolutions of this time-tested, player-proven instrument yet.

Bringing touches previously reserved for Custom Shop instruments to a production bass makes this a very special player. Start with a lightweight alder body to build a classic foundational tone. Fender’s popular Slim C profile neck features a smoothly rolled fingerboard edge, sculpted neck heel and a satin neck finish that feels almost naked, making this an incredibly comfortable bass to play. Freshly revised V-Mod II Jazz Bass single-coil pickups are more articulate than ever while delivering the punch and clarity the Jazz Bass is known for.

The Fender American Professional II Fretless Jazz Bass delivers instant familiarity and sonic versatility you’ll feel and hear right away, with broad ranging improvements that add up to nothing less than a new standard for professional instruments.
