The legendary Fender Player Jazz Bass is a workhorse bass guitar offering iconic tone and feel. It's equipped with a pair of punchy single-coil pickups for the brand's characteristic sound, combined with a fast-playing maple neck and vintage-style hardware for a classic playing experience.

Fender Player Jazz Bass Pickups

Dual Single-Coil Pickups Provide Legendary Tone

The Fender Player Jazz Bass is loaded with a pair of single-coil pickups for the warm, rumbling tone that Fender basses are known for. The bridge pickup has a sharp, biting tone that cuts through the mix, while the neck pickup produces a round, full sound. Using the volume controls for each pickup, you can blend the pickups together for a range of tones, from aggressive to mellow.

Fender Player Jazz Bass Maple Neck

Fast-Playing Maple Neck

The Fender Player Jazz Bass features a maple neck with a comfortable Modern C-shaped profile. Maple provides a tight, punchy tone and solid sustain. The 9.5" radius maple fingerboard has 20 medium-jumbo frets, ideal for almost any playing style. The 4-saddle bridge allows for accurate intonation and action adjustment so you can customize the feel.

Vintage-Style Hardware and Electronics

To complete the classic Fender vibe, the Player Jazz Bass includes vintage-style hardware like open-gear tuners, a 3-ply pickguard and an “F”-stamped neck plate. The volume and tone controls use high-quality potentiometers and capacitors for transparent tone shaping.

Whether you're looking for your first serious bass or a reliable workhorse, the Fender Player Jazz Bass delivers iconic tone and feel at an accessible value. Plug in, dial up your favorite tone and let the creative inspiration flow.
