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

Bringing touches previously reserved for Custom Shop instruments to a production bass makes this a very special player. The body is lightweight roasted pine—no matter how long your set or session, your shoulders will thank you. With a smoothly rolled fingerboard edge, sculpted neck heel and a satin neck finish that feels almost naked, it's an incredibly comfortable bass to play. Freshly revised V-Mod II Jazz Bass V single-coil pickups add articulation and warmth to the punch and clarity the Jazz Bass is known for.

A new 5-saddle HiMass Vintage bridge can be loaded string-thru or as a hardtail. Combined with the roasted pine body, this makes for a very resonant instrument.

Totally familiar but subtly different, the American Pro II Jazz Bass V is an instant classic. Fender may well have created a new standard in production basses with this one. Includes deluxe molded case.
