  • A J Bass just like Adam Clayton's

  • Big bass tone from Fender Custom Shop pickups
A J Bass just like Adam Clayton's

Holding down the low end in a world-famous band like U2 requires great tone and technique. Adam Clayton has the chops and chooses to play Fender Basses on the gig. The Fender Adam Clayton Jazz Bass features a premium alder body, a graphite reinforced maple, custom Adam Clayton "C"-shaped neck, and big bass tone Fender custom shop pickups that give you the classic J Bass tone you are looking for.

Fender's most playable 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 custom Adam Clayton "C"-shaped neck. The back of the neck has a slick-playing satin finish that feels worn in and ready to go. The headstock has a tinted gloss finish that matches the body and the rosewood fretboard has been buffed to perfection. Once you play this neck finish, you won't be able to go back to anything else.

Big bass tone from Fender Custom Shop pickups

The Fender Adam Clayton Jazz Bass gives you big bass tones thanks to Fender Custom Shop pickups. These pickups give you all the solid, low-end thump you want, with the full-range responsiveness you need, giving you that iconic Jazz Bass growl that's perfect for all styles of music.

Fender Adam Clayton Jazz Bass Features:
  • U2 legend Adam Clayton Fender Artist series bass with killer looks and huge sound
  • Premium alder body with maple neck and vintage hardware
  • Custom Shop pickups for killer bass tone
  • Adam Clayton signature on front of headstock on matching painted headstock
  • Posiflex graphite neck support rods for durability and intonation
  • Big block inlays for classic Jazz Bass looks

Hold down the low end in style with the Fender Adam Clayton Jazz Bass!

Love this bass

My bass player bought this bass after I got the chance to play one and have been singing it's praises since. He couldn't be happier with his purchase. Sounds great live and in the studio. The neck feels great and the tone is superb.

One fine bass!

I've been reading nothing but great reviews on the Fender Adam Clayton Jazz Bass and decided to act on buying one. I wasn't disappointed. First... Sweetwater's sales guy, Paul, was a great help. Second... Sweetwater set the bass up before shipping, so all I had to do was take it out and check the tuning and I was set. It's a fine playing guitar. Action is fantastic and those 60's custom shop pickups really do put the sounds out. It's a fabulously gorgeous jazz bass and I would recommend to anyone that's interested in owning a great instrument that truly does hit the mark. Thanks!

Awsome Instrument

This is a great instrument, the sound, playability,quality bass!!! Clint Bransteter is such a great sales engineer and provides a 5***** star service. This is an AA+++ team !!

Awesome Bass !

The color is amazing. The picture doesn't do it justice. I normally play a Rick. I wanted to get a second bass and chose a fender. I know now I made the right choice. The sound is fantastic. I love the neck of this bass. It is very easy to play. I wanted something different from every Jass bass. That is why I chose the Adam Clayton. From the lollipop tuners to the custom shop pickups. I would give this a 10.

Wonderful bass!

The color and styling of this bass just blows me away. The matching headstock with the body reeks of the mid-60s Fenders. Sweetwater did a great job of setting it up and I play it all the time, along with my Fender American Standard Jaguar bass. Fender did a great job. The custom shop pick-ups really THUMP! My only glitch was I'm not fond of white pearloid pick guards ... and in the case of this elegant bass, it's almost too gaudy. So, I replaced that with a regular Fender white Jazz bass, 10-hole pick guard.

Sweetwater Advice

Simon Whitehouse

Fender's Adam Clayton Jazz Bass is a gorgeous instrument, and its ascetics are just the beginning. I love the custom-designed neck shape — it's super comfortable and easy to play. I'm particularly impressed by its fusion of modern and vintage features. The '60s reissue pickups ooze buttery Jazz Bass tone, and the high-mass bridge lets each note ring out like a monastery bell.
