The Modern Player Jazz Bass returns in a five-string model with a contemporary look and even greater tonal versatility from its powerful pair of humbucking pickups.

The Modern Player Jazz Bass V features an Alder body to deliver a full-bodied bass sound and is topped with a satin polyester finish that imparts a smoothly elegant air. The 34" scale, "C" shaped Maple neck houses a 20 jumbo fret 9.5" radius Maple (Black Finish) or Rosewood (Olympic White & 2-Tone Sunburst) fingerboard to provide you with incredible comfort and smooth, effortless playability.

The Modern Player Jazz Bass V comes equipped with dual Modern Player Humbucking Jazz Bass pickups in the bridge and middle positions to deliver richest and beefiest bass tones. The Modern Player Jazz Bass V also conveniently houses a four-position rotary pickup selector switch to deliver a potent quartet of pickup combinations (full middle and bridge pickups, full middle pickup and bridge pickup outer coil, full bridge pickup and middle pickup outer coil, outer coil of both pickups). Each pickup features its own individual volume control knob and share a master tone control to make finding your perfect tone quick and simple.

The Modern Player Jazz Bass V boasts nickel/chrome finished hardware including a 5-saddle hi-mass bridge and standard open-gear tuning machines. The Modern Player Jazz Bass V also features a 1-ply black pickguard and vintage style black plastic Jazz Bass control knobs. Case not included.
