Ultra Noiseless pickups
The American Ultra is loaded with two Ultra Noiseless Vintage Jazz Bass pickups. The sound is pure, classic Fender: bright and rich mids with zero noise or hum.
The pickups can be further colored with an active/passive preamp, featuring new, revoiced EQ points. The other controls on the American Ultra Jazz Bass are also ultra-modern. Pickup selects are made with a pan pot. Explore more tonal possibilities with boost/cut switches for bass, midrange and treble.
New neck heel
A first for Fender, the American Ultra’s sculpted neck heel allows for effortless access to the upper frets. It’s a significant reduction in bulk at the base of the neck, super thin but structurally sound with maximum resonance.
New neck profile
The American Ultra neck has a modern-D profile. It’s flatter than a standard-D, with a faster back and a little more “meat” on the shoulders. Fender created an all-new process to apply a thin coast of satin urethane, giving the neck a completely smooth, raw wood feel. Your hands won’t stick here.
New body contour
The American Ultra Jazz Bass has a redesigned, sculpted rear contour, producing the most comfortable J Bass yet.
