Fender American Elite Jazz Bass  V Maple Fingerboard Champagne

The American Elite Jazz Bass V is an active 5-string bass for the modern bassist whodemands cutting-edge tone technology alongwith timeless style and fast, smooth playing feel.Its versatile sound easily matches any playingstyle, while its standout looks remain authenticallyFender, with a fresh twist.

The exclusive all-new fourth-generation Noiseless pickups deliver vintage-style response with noise-free performance. The pickups are fueled by a redesigned robust 18-volt preamp cranks up the power for chest-thumping sound with more headroom and reduced noise.

Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the new genuine bone nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. Posiflex™ graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting temperature- and humidity-induced warping. The HiMass™ Vintage bridge increases note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with colossal punch and boundless sustain while allowing either top-load or strings-thru-body stringing. In a vintage-inspired touch, the new truss rod adjustment wheel has been moved to the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments a snap.

This bass is packed with Fender’s immortal aesthetics—from the ergonomic contours to the black chrome headstock logo, this instrument will pin the audience’s ears back with its gigantic tone and slick style. The American Elite Jazz Bass V is a bold new bass for adventurous bassists who need a tonal multi-tool that refuses to compromise on any front. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks.
