The Fender American Professional II Jazz Bass is the latest evolution of the most influential electric bass ever created. This sleek, versatile instrument takes the iconic J Bass design to new heights with a meticulously sculpted neck heel, rolled fingerboard edges and two brand-new V-Mod II single-coil pickups that deliver vintage-inspired tone with enhanced clarity and articulation.

New V-Mod II Pickups Provide Iconic Tone Reimagined

The American Professional II Jazz Bass is equipped with a pair of newly designed V-Mod II Jazz Bass pickups that build upon Fender's legacy of pickup innovation. These pickups capture coveted vintage-style tone while improving note definition and dynamics. The neck pickup provides a warm, round tone perfect for complex walking basslines and soloing. The bridge pickup cuts through the mix with a bright, articulate growl suited to aggressive slap playing and punk-infused styles.

Sculpted Neck Heel Opens Up The Higher Register

This Jazz Bass features a sculpted neck heel that provides unencumbered access to the upper frets. The contoured heel shape increases playing comfort while enabling effortless transitions into the instrument's highest range. Combined with the slim C-shaped neck profile, 20 narrow-tall frets, and 9.5" fingerboard radius, this ergonomic design dramatically improves playability across the fretboard.

Premium Components And Attention To Detail

From its alder body and maple fingerboard to its HiMass vintage bridge, the American Professional II Jazz Bass incorporates premium components selected for their ability to withstand the demands of professional use. The HiMass bridge enhances sustain and string resonance while the bone nut and tapered tuning machines provide exceptional tuning stability. A satin urethane finish on the back of the neck delivers a smooth, fast playing feel. Each aspect of this instrument, down to the smallest detail, has been meticulously crafted for outstanding performance and enduring quality.
