A Timeless Jazz Bass - Left Handed!

The Fender Standard Jazz Bass is of noteworthy lineage. 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 gives the Fender Standard Jazz Bass quieter operation.

Fender Standard Jazz Bass (Left Handed) 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 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.

Fender Standard Jazz Bass

Beautiful finish. Great Bang for buck. Bright thin sound on the neck.

Fender Jazz Bass

This is worth every penny I paid and then some. It is well constructed and sounds great. It has a very comfortable feel. I found it really holds tune well. Fender really went the extra mile with this Bass. I have played the more expensive Fender Basses and actually can not find any difference. This handles as well as the Basses twice the cost and more.

It's A Winner

I've been playing guitar since I was 11 but have never owned a bass. This left handed Fender Standard Jazz model is very affordable and everything I could have hoped for. I can't imagine how an American model could play or sound better.
