Fender American Elite Jazz V Bass
With the exclusive fourth-generation Noiseless pickups Fender achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion-vintage-style response with completely noise-free performance. These muscular pickups are fueled by a redesigned robust 18-volt preamp cranks up the power for even more signal quality for chest-thumping tone with more headroom and reduced noise.
Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5"-14" compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern "C"-shape at the genuine bone nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern "D"-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics.
Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting temperature- and humidity-induced warping. The HiMass Vintage bridge increases note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with colossal punch and boundless sustain while allowing either top-load or strings-thru-body stringing. In a vintage-inspired touch, the new truss rod adjustment wheel has been moved to the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments a snap.
This bass is packed with Fender's immortal aesthetics - from the ergonomic contours to the black chrome headstock logo, large pearloid fret markers, and unique finish, this instrument will pin the audience's ears back with it's gigantic tone and slick style. The American Elite Jazz Bass is a bold bass for adventurous bassists who need a tonal multi-tool that refuses to compromise on any front. Includes a redesigned hardshell case with TSA locks. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with body-hugging contours to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument and TSA locks.
