Dynamic, Versatile, and Expressive

Fender's prestigious Jazz Bass can date its roots back to 1960, when the Deluxe Model was introduced as a stablemate to the Jazzmaster guitar. This model was later renamed to the Jazz Bass, because its redesigned neck - which was slimmer and more-rounded than that of the P-Bass - was more appealing to Jazz musicians.

A firm-favourite with Jazz, Funk, Soul, Blues, Pop, and Rock stars galore over the decades, the Jazz Bass is renowned for it's high-levels of playability, growling single-coil pickups, and versatile tone-shaping options.

American Performer Series

Made in Corona, California, the American Performer Series Jazz Bass has been made to offer the exceptional tone and feel you've come to expect from an authentic J-Bass - but with all-new features designed to inspire you on to greatness.

First of all this bass features a relatively lightweight Alder body, and a satin-finished Maple neck topped with a Rosewood fingerboard, offering a level of comfort that we think you'll find more-than agreeable.

Also featuring two newly designed Yosemite Single Coil "J-Bass" pickups, a Master Greasebucket Tone Circuit (more on that later) and even a Deluxe Gig Bag to keep it safe, this J-Bass is perfect for the consummate professional.

What Are Yosemite Pickups?

Newly designed for the American Performer Series of instruments, Yosemite pickups feature flat-staggered pole pieces and shellac potting. This results in an increased output, while at the same time allowing the coils to breathe, therefore minimising feedback.

Like their forebears, these pickups are built to produce a rich, expressive array of tones. While more-suited to musical genres which emphasise prominent basslines - such as Funk and Jazz - these pickups are versatile enough to suit pretty much any musical style.

Premium Electronics

In addition to each pickup having independent Volume control pots, there's a Master Greasebucket Tone Circuit to contend with. Greasebucket tone circuitry allows you to shape your tonal highs without adding any extra bass into the mix, preserving your tone and letting every note ring out.

Modern Neck Profile

Another modern feature on the American Performer Series P-Bass is the inclusion of a Modern "C" profile neck shape. This neck comes complete with a 9.5"-radius fingerboard, making it comfortable for pretty much any playing style, and its 20 Jumbo Frets allow for your musical expressiveness to shine through.
