Highly figured koa top over a rosewood and mahogany body
One look is all it takes to know the Victor Bailey Jazz Bass V is a very special instrument. It starts with a beautifully figured top made from rare and exotic koa over a rosewood and mahogany body. This combination resonates like no other bass thanks to a specially formulated polyester finish.
Two Special Design Noiseless pickups
A bass as special as the Victor Bailey Jazz Bass V deserves a special set of pickups, so Fender dropped in two Special Design Noiseless pickups with Samarium Cobalt magnets that help to deliver a sweet, warm sound that perfectly matches the instrument's good looks.
Specially voiced tone circuitry
The tone shaping abilities of the Victor Bailey Jazz Bass V are enhanced by special circuitry that has been tweaked at the input stage with pre-shape, boost and EQ settings. Bass EQ is centered at 40Hz (plus/minus 12dB) while the treble EQ is centered at 8kHz (plus/minus 10dB)The mid-control is set at 500Hz with a wide-band slope for a distinctive bass sound all its own.
Modern "C" shape maple neck with rosewood fingerboard
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 Artist Series Victor Bailey Jazz Bass V has a nicely balanced maple neck with a modern "C" shape and a rosewood fingerboard. A koa headstock overlay adds the final touch of class.
Deluxe, plush-lined brown hardshell case
As you'd expect with a bass of this pedigree, the Victor Bailey Jazz Bass V comes complete with a deluxe, plush-lined brown hardshell case
