From Our Research Team:
Fender Select Jazz BassFender has created a new top-of-the-line series called the FENDER® Select series. The Fender Select Jazz Bass® is the standard that all other Jazz Basses are held up to. From its select alder body topped with flame maple to its compound-radius rosewood fingerboard, the Select is the best the Jazz Bass world has to offer. Fender even created new Select pickups that give you warm and full low end, with growling mids and clear highs. We see lots of instruments at Sweetwater and the Select series is a force to be reckoned with. If you are looking for an elegant bass that is premium top to bottom, the Fender Select Jazz Bass is the instrument for you.
Fender Select Jazz Bass at a Glance:
Only the best is good enough
The Fender Select Jazz Bass is exactly as the name implies - select. All the tonewoods are premium from the alder body with maple top to the quartersawn maple neck to the rosewood fretboard. A duo of new Fender Select pickups were designed to give the Select Jazz Bass its rich and full low end while preserving the growling midrange associated with Jazz Basses. From the Fender/Hipshot tuners to the High Mass Vintage bridge to the custom G&G Case, no expense was spared on the American-made Fender Select Jazz Bass®.
The Select neck
The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, and the Fender Select Jazz Bass features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll love the playability and feel of the Select Jazz Bass's compound-radius fretboard. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 9.5" radius that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed arpeggio work. Up top, a 14" radius lays it all out flat for effortless, low-action high-speed runs without fretting out.
A classy bass
Unlike the typical solid-color instruments the Fender Select Jazz Bass has an elegant and classy look. We're talking high-profile wedding or Governor's Ball classy. You'll never hear the wedding planner ask if you plan to play that guitar at the gig. The great thing is that the Select Jazz Bass sounds and plays as good as it looks!

Most mother-beautifull bass I have ever owned.
by Brian from Milwaukee, WI USASuch an absolutely beautifull axe. Plays and sounds like a jazz bass should. I did however replace the standard issue round wound strings with some D'Addario XL chrome flat wounds.

Pricey, but worth it.
