Fender American Pro Jazz Bass V, RW, Olympic White
The new Fender American Professional Jazz Bass delivers the pure power and performance we've come to expect from an all-time classic. For the bass player that needs that extended range and deeper lows, this Jazz Bass V offers an unmistakable playing experience.
The flagship 5-String Jazz Bass
Over the years, the J-Bass has evolved to meet the demands of modern players, and the 2017 edition boasts a new Slim-C neck profile, upgraded V-Mod Single-Coil pickups and upgraded neck support for even better playability. The core foundation of an Alder body, Maple neck and single coil pickups deliver the pure Jazz tone with full low end, growling midrange and singing treble.
Developed by pickup master Michael Bump, the brand-new V-Mod single-coil Jazz Bass pickups use a carefully selected blend of alnico magnet types for balanced tone with authentic Fender sonic DNA.
Designed for comfort and performance, the slim modern “C”-shaped neck profile will suit most playing styles, while the narrow-tall frets provide a familiar playing feel and perfect intonation.
Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting warping. The redesigned tuning machines use a fluted shaft, creating the optimum break angle over the nut while keeping the string windings tight for increased sustain and enhanced tuning stability.
