The Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Fretless takes you into new sonic territory.

Because of its unparalleled versatility and easy playability, the Jazz Bass remains as popular as ever.  In tandem with its predecessor, the Precision Bass, the Jazz Bass continues to be the standard bearer and a frontline force in the world of popular music.

The Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Fretless features an alder body with the legendary ‘comfort contour’ and offset waist design that was way ahead of its time. The body is outfitted with a pair of Fender Custom Shop '60s Jazz Bass single-coil pickups that deliver those clear, punchy, Jazz Bass tones that were the driving force behind an endless list of bands throughout the decades.

The American Standard Fretless Jazz Bass Fretless is equipped with the familiar slim tapered maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard with a modern 9-1/2" radius and “fret” markers to ensure proper intonation and maximize playability. Chrome hardware includes a High Mass Vintage bridge (which can be strung thru-body or top loaded) and open gear tuners. Finally, a protective, hardshell case is included along with a cable, strap, and polishing cloth.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Fretless Bass:

    My dream bass! I picked up mine in Mystic Blue (discontinued - got the last one!) and it is gorgeous! It's not my first fretless, but the only one I have now and the only one I'll probably ever need. The pickups sound great and are extremely versatile. It's a very expressive instrument I would recommend to any well-rounded bass player.

    My other USA Jazz is from 2005, and they've made a few changes since then that I really like. I much prefer the newer bridge design - a little beefier. The Custom Shop 60's pickups are great. Not necessarily louder, but get a nice vintage growl.

    Lastly, ordering from Sam Ash was a breeze. Ordered late Thursday night and arrived Tuesday morning, no problem!
