Overview

When only the best is good enough and money no object, many bass players turn to the Fender American Elite series. With this Fender American Elite Jazz Bass 3-Color Sunburst you get an innovative, professional-grade instrument that offers you the very pinnacle of Fender Bass playability and tonality.

Made With Modern-Players In Mind

Packed full of Fender's latest in technological innovations and designs, the American Elite Jazz Bass is perfect for the modern bassist who wants to be at the top of their game.

Featuring cutting-edge tone technology and an all-new, high-performance, compound profile neck, this bass is ideal for any playing style. Despite these upgrades though, there's no need to worry: aesthetically it's still very much authentically Fender.

Fender American Elite Jazz Bass 3-Color Sunburst Highlights

  • Double Cutaway 4-String Electric Bass
  • Dual All-New Fourth-Generation Noiseless Jazz Bass Single-Coil Pickups
  • Onboard Active 18-Volt Preamp for More Headroom with Less Nosie
  • Compound Profile Neck; Redesigned Contoured Neck Heel
  • 9.5” – 14” Compound Radius Fingerboard
  • HiMass Bridge; New Genuine Bone Nut
  • Includes Redesigned ABS Elite Moulded Case with TSA Locks

American Elite Playability

In a unique combination of comfort and playability, the new compound neck profile design on the American Elite Jazz Bass is really something else.

Ranging from a Modern "C"-Shape at the nut, and changing to a modern "D"-shape by the time you get to the heel, this neck offers you easier higher-fret access than ever before.

In addition to this, the newly-designed cutaway neck heel allows the neck to blend beautifully into the body, offering even more comfort when playing those upper frets.

Newly Designed Pickups

Brand new, and exclusive for Fender's American Elite series, the 4th Generation Noiseless single coil pickups in this bass could well be their best yet.

Accurately recreating an authentic vintage-style Fender sound, but complete with noise-free performance and an active preamp, your playing will be as crystal clear as you could wish for.

With the 18v on-board preamp, you now get plenty more headroom to work with, along with even more accurate, noise-free, tone-shaping abilities.
