Great Value in This Fretless Four-string Jazz Bass

The Fender fretless Standard Jazz Bass packs a ton of value at a great price. Leo Fender designed and built the world's first electric bass guitar in late 1951 and every electric bass made since then is unquestionably a direct descendent. But Leo was never satisfied, so in 1960, he introduced the "deluxe model" Fender Jazz Bass. So inspired was that design that it has changed little over the years in appearance, though its evolution continues today with the 4-string Standard Jazz Bass. Its two pickups add tonal versatility and a new shielded body cavity delivers quieter operation. Call Sweetwater to get this Fender fretless Standard Jazz Bass today!

Fender Standard Jazz Bass Fretless Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Lightweight, "offset waist" alder body is comfortable to wear
  • Maple neck with modern "C" shape is comfortable to play
  • Dual, single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity
Lightweight, "offset waist" alder body

Bass guitars are big and that can mean heavy, too. So the Fender Standard Jazz Bass comes with the distinctive "offset waist" body design, but made from alder, which is resonant, but relatively light, which you'll appreciate after two or three hours up on stage.

Maple neck with modern "C" shape

Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player, so he didn't really know that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. Eventually, the blond maple necks became a Fender trademark. This Standard Jazz Bass has a nicely balanced maple neck with a modern "C" shape.

Dual, single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity

Fender's early electric basses had just one pickup. So naturally, if one was good, two was even better. The Standard Series Jazz Bass has two single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity for quieter operation, both on stage and in the studio.

Fender Standard Jazz Bass Fretless Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Awesome bass sound, playability, and comfort
  • Wide range of great bass sounds from two Standard Jazz Bass single-coil pickups
  • Offset-waist body shape gives you extreme playing comfort, standing or seated
  • Eminently playable narrow, fast-action neck with fretless rosewood fingerboard
  • Vintage-style Jazz Bass control knobs look cool

Jaco sound at a reasonable price!

When I finally decided to add a fretless bass to my growing repertoire, I, of course, first looked at the time-honored Fender Jazz Bass. Actually, I first looked at the Squire version, but it was a little too bottom-basement with a compressed-paper neck (really), cheap pickups, etc. The other end of the spectrum was the American Standard Fretless, which at almost $1,400 was a little more than I wanted to pay. And just like the 3 bears, the one in the middle was just right. The Fender Standard Fretless J-Bass has a beautiful finish, smooth Rosewood neck, and authentic, quiet J-Bass pickups. At $599, it hits the sweet spot, both sonically and financially. Good job, Fender!

Yeoman Fretless

This is my first fretless of any kind, so I don't have much to compare it to in that sense, but I have been playing fretted basses for 40 years. This bass, despite being made in Mexico, is pretty good. Not the best, but a professional enough sounding instrument to get by. The bridge could be a little beefier, the pick ups are not the quietest nor the cleanest sounding, but for the price, I'd say I got a pretty decent axe. Nothing to get overly excited about, but as I really just wanted something fretless just to see if it would be my "thing" this fills the role in a yeoman's capacity. I'd say it's worth the price, and a very playable, decent instrument. If you really into higher level pro basses, I'd say skip this one and move to the Fender American Professional line, you'll probably be more satisfied. But I'm keeping mine.

Sweetwater Advice

Bryan Brubaker

Whether I'm playing on the road or laying down tracks at my studio, I always gravitate to my Fender Standard Jazz Bass. It has a distinctive tone that's silky and warm, blending great with all of the music I play! Every time I pick it up, I'm reminded of the quality that Fender puts into their products. It's dependable, durable, and the sunburst finish is a timeless classic.
