The New Standard in American Jazz

Not many bass guitar designs have found wider favor around the world than the Fender Jazz Bass. This left-handed American Professional Jazz Bass is the latest incarnation of that ground-breaking instrument. Designed from the ground up to offer you an ideal gigging and recording instrument, the American Professional Jazz Bass boasts a bevy of player-friendly features. Your hand will wrap comfortably around the familiar Modern-C neck contour, while you enjoy the blend of power and old-school low end delivered by a pair of V-Mod single-coil J-style pickups. The ubiquitous American Professional J Bass — better than ever!

One of the best necks in the business

Many bass players agree that Jazz Basses boast some of the best necks ever made. And you'll enjoy every bit of that to-die-for profile on your left-handed American Professional Jazz. It fits in your hand perfectly while being narrow enough to move up and down the fretboard easily. The neck's satin finish gives the feeling of a well-worked vintage instrument, while its 9.5" fretboard radius is more akin to what you'll find on more modern designs. And a set of Posiflex graphite rods is installed to keep the neck stable and straight, a very popular addition here at Sweetwater.

Simple and effective electronics

Jazz basses boast a 2-pickup setup, allowing you to get diverse tonal variation. The single-coils and the bass's 3-knob setup have been responsible for a wide array of some of the most legendary bass tones in history. The American Professional Jazz Bass sticks close to its heritage with a duet of V-Mod single-coil pickups. Designed by pickup guru Tim Shaw, these single-coils exhibit the warm and natural tones of older pickups, while delivering the clarity and dynamic range of some of today's best designs.

Player-friendly appointments

Though the left-handed American Professional Jazz Bass looks and feels like a familiar friend, it's loaded with features that enhance both playability and tone. One of the most notable is the HiMass vintage-style bridge. This bridge's rigid construction works in concert with the bone nut to transfer more of the string's energy to the body of the instrument, enhancing its sustain and articulation. And the American Professional Jazz Bass's fluted tuner design ensures you have optimal break angle and tension on your string posts.

Sweetwater get five stars / bass wasn't set up well

Sweetwater gets 5 stars for there great service and shipping. The fender jazz is an absolutely beautiful bass but wasn't set up well . I had my tech. Set it up at my cost , and now it plays incredible , you guys need to really look at the necks before you ship . The ibanez I bought last year from Sweetwater I had to have set up as well at my cost . And now they both play great ! Thank you Sweetwater , I'll be back buying soon !
Music background: Bass player for two different bands / been playing 33 years .

Great Bass!

I really like my new Fender American Professional Jazz Bass. The new color alone blows me away! The only thing I don't like about it is I wish it had a satin finish neck. It's slightly glossy and I prefer the flat feel of satin finish. The sound is great. No hum, no noise from the pickups, except the noise you want! Sounds great, plays great, a terrific upgrade from my old MIM Jazz.
