Other features include a compound radius fretboard and asymmetrical neck profile for fast action and silky-smooth playability all the way up the neck, active/passive switch and passive tone control for even more tonal options, and classic Jazz Bass block fretboard inlays and binding.

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

The Fender Jazz Deluxe V is quite an amazing bass. This should have weight from someone who has hated Fender for quite a long time. What other basses wish they could achieve, this bass has got it! The fast neck and well balanced setup work in great combination with the control one can get from the EQ and the Pickups. A great deal of love has been put in this bass by Fender and they have strived for the ultimate top of the pops 5 string. They achieved it! The only con is that the strap lock system is really tight and it can get almost impossible to put a strap on this. Get a good and broken in strap and it will work perfectly.
