Fender American Standard Jazz Bass at a Glance:
  • Classic design
  • Custom Shop pickups for huge tone
  • The perfect neck finish
Classic design

Leo Fender brought us the first Jazz Bass in 1960, and its offset-waist body, balanced design, and smooth-playing, narrow neck continue to give today's American Standard version excellent playability and a distinctive look. Players from all genres have embraced this bass, and you can see it on stages everywhere and hear it in countless recordings. As with so many of Fender's original designs, the man got the essence of the Jazz Bass right the first time, and the new American Standard Jazz Bass bears that out.

Custom Shop pickups for huge tone

One of the biggest improvements on the American Standard Jazz Bass is the addition of Fender Custom Shop pickups. You'll love the Custom Shop '60s Jazz Bass single-coil pickups in this J Bass. Fender over-wound these pickups to give you more punch, mid-range, bass and output. Perfect for all styles of music, these pickups give you a fat low end, tons of thump, and that iconic Jazz Bass growl.

The perfect neck finish

Players are very particular about many aspects of their instruments, but none more so than the neck. Fender has incorporated a great-feeling satin finish on the American Standard Jazz Bass neck. The back of the Jazz Bass's neck has a slick-playing satin finish that feels worn in and ready to go. The headstock has a tinted gloss finish, and the rosewood fretboard has been buffed to perfection. Once you play the American Standard Jazz Bass neck finish, you won't be able to go back to anything else.

Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Features:
  • Classic bass sounds and amazing playability
  • Custom Shop '60s Jazz Bass pickups give you awesome tone
  • Satin neck finish feels and plays great
  • Made in Fender's USA factory
  • Includes Hardshell SKB case, cable, strap, and polishing cloth

The Fender American Standard Jazz Bass is a classic bass with modern updates!

Excellent Instrument Overall

I've started playing Bass since 1992. Since then, I've owned several beginner brands. Not until a fellow veteran offered me his 2004 American Standard Precision that got me to play more and more. Because I was blown away by its tone and attitude, it even leads me to get a 2013 Gibson Thunderbird to have the best of both worlds. I thought that was it, but surely doesn't feel complete. So I went to try other Bass guitars in order to find that perfect balance. The American Jazz Bass was the answer. The feel and how the instrument carries itself, you can't ask for anything else. A remarkable instrument! Job well done, Fender. Many thanks to Mr. Kurt Martin as well for his topnotch customer service. And thank you Sweetwater.

I'm impressed!

I bought the 2016 Fender Jazz American Standard and it did not disappoint. It growls, it pops, and smooth as I want it to be. String height, neck, pickups all feel and sound wonderful. Comparing from other Basses this one stands out immediately. I am very impressed. Fender did a great job on this instrument. The real bonus that made this purchase so amazing was my Rep Dennis Konicki who kept me in the loop, sent me the pictures, and let me know the bass was delivered. The 55 point inspection is fantastic. It was perfect out of the case for me. Everything they stated in that 55 point check was done. Bravo Sweetwater team!! and a big thank you!

Full circle w/Fender Jazz Bass

My first Jazz Bass was in 1967 and it was stolen a few years later... this American Standard is my second Jazz Bass and after many other basses, I'm glad to be home again... this bass looks and feels great ! ... I have small hands and the new neck shape is so comfortable and feels just right.. the noiseless pickups are completely quiet and the tone impeccably distinctive Jazz Bass... the bass was put into immediate service and is now earning it's keep ... and what a joy to play ! ... Thanks to Sean and Team Sweetwater for a job well done !

Fender American Standard Jazz

Straight out of the box, and into the recording studio, the Fender American Standard Jazz played and sounded great. It was everything I expected. Thanks Alan, and Sweetwater.

Very very nice

Quality with a wonderful sound. The strings that came on the JB were garbage, Put some DR High Beams on it and fell in love! Highly recommend Sweetwater.
