Overview

The Fender American Ultra Series Jazz Bass V is designed for players who want the most advanced, highest performance five-string J Bass ever made. The team spent over two years on intense R&D, analyzing and improving everything on this new flagship line. Made in America in Corona, California, the American Ultra J Bass V features new noiseless pickups, advanced electronics, tapered heel and body contours, a redesigned neck profile, a maple fretboard with rolled edges and new stage-ready finishes. It all adds up to a Jazz Bass V you’ll never part with. But don’t let these modern updates fool you. The vibe of the American Ultra Series Jazz Bass V is still classic Fender.

American Ultra Jazz Bass hum-free pickups

Ultra Noiseless pickups

The 5-string American Ultra Jazz Bass V is loaded with two Ultra Noiseless Vintage Jazz Bass pickups. The sound is pure Fender: bright and rich mids with zero noise or hum.

Fender American Ultra J Bass preamp and controls

Advanced electronics

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 V 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.

Tapered neck heel on Jazz bass for playing ease

New neck heel

A first for Fender, the American Ultra Jazz Bass V 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 J Bass V 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 coat of satin urethane, giving the neck a completely smooth, raw wood feel. Your hands won’t stick here. The maple fretboard has rolled edges for added comfort.
