A 5-string Jazz Bass for the Modern Player

Fender's American Elite Jazz Bass V provides players with a classic bass that's updated for modern playing styles and low-B power. You'll get the familiar round lows and clear top end that Jazz Basses are known for, without the 60-cycle hum thanks to a pair of fourth-generation Fender Noiseless single-coil pickups. An 18-volt active preamp adds a 3-band EQ and an active/passive switch. And features like a 9.5"-14" compound-radius fretboard make these J Basses effortless to play. The Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V propels one of the most popular workhorse basses of all time into the future.

Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V at a Glance:
  • Familiar tones with a twist
  • Neck designed with you in mind
  • The quality is in the details
Familiar tones with a twist

Onboard the American Elite Jazz Bass V is a duo of Fender's fourth-generation Noiseless J Bass single-coil pickups. These designs deliver the Jazz Bass's familiar punch and warmth, but the Noiseless circuitry eliminates unwanted signal noise and hum, making the bass ideal for live performance and recording. The 3-band active preamp adds a wide range of tonal control with a switch to go passive if you so choose. And the alder and maple construction with a rosewood fingerboard is a tried-and-true combination that has proven itself over decades.

Neck designed with you in mind

Fender Jazz Basses have been known for their iconic neck profiles since their introduction. Narrower and faster than a traditional P-style neck, they are a favorite of countless bassists worldwide. The American Elite Jazz Bass V continues the tradition with a comfortable contour that morphs from a "C" to "D" profile as you move up the neck. And the 9.5"-14" compound fretboard radius ensures comfort whether you're holding down the low end or delivering melodic statements higher on the frets. This neck gives you the feel of a well broken-in bass as soon as you open the case.

The quality is in the details

Whether you play sitting or with one strapped over your shoulder, Sweetwater bassists are sure you'll appreciate the comfort of the American Elite Jazz Bass V's belly and arm contours. A 5-string Fender HiMass vintage-style bridge anchors the strings either through the body or in a top-load configuration. And adjusting the neck relief couldn't be easier because of the truss rod adjustment wheel located at the butt end of the neck. But because of a pair of Posiflex graphite support rods, you'll rarely have to worry about this ultra-stable neck.

Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V Features:
  • Upgraded 5-string American Jazz Bass
  • Vintage-style 4th-generation Fender Noiseless pickups
  • Active 3-band EQ opens up your tonal options
  • An active/passive switch is a lifesaver if your battery dies
  • Ideal 9.5"-14" compound-radius fretboard
  • Comfortable belly and arm contours
  • Butt-end located truss rod adjustment wheel
  • Bone nut
  • Includes strap locks and adjustment wrenches
The Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V is a workhorse bass for today's 5-string players.

Elite Jazz Bass V

Fender has really stepped it up in quality, By far the best Fender Bass I have had in my hands. I have not been a fan of noiseless pickups in the past but they nailed it with theses & the compound radius neck plays like a Dream, Love It
