Fender's "Deluxe" Jazz Bass Redesigned and Refined

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.

Fender Jazz Bass Features at a Glance:
  • Lightweight, "offset waist" alder body
  • Maple neck with modern "C" shape
  • Rosewood fingerboard
  • 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 Standard Jazz Bass V 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 Jazz Bass has a nicely balanced maple neck with a modern "C" shape.

Rosewood Fingerboard
While almost all the early Fender instruments had maple necks and fingerboards, the company quickly realized that some players preferred the slightly warmer sound and feel of a traditional rosewood fingerboard. For the 4-string Standard Jazz Bass, it's the perfect match.

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 V has two single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity for quieter operation, both on stage and in the studio.

I love this bass. It is the second one I have bought and has quickly become my favorite. The staff at Sweetwater were excellent at making sure the bass I got was flawless in every way.

FENDER Great Bass Great name

This a very well made instrument of good quality materials. For a mid priced Fender bass this guitar is made good enough to play in the studio or on stage. Thanks to Sweetwater, it's 55 point inspection made sure my bass is set up like it should be. String height, action, neck alinement, all correct, bass plays really smooth. ( go ahead and get you one of these)
Music background: hobbyist local musician 30yrs.
