  • Description

    The American Elite Series basses represent the very best in modern Fender performance, playability, and tone while holding true to traditional Fender style. Groundbreaking Elite Series features include the latest 4th generation Noiseless pickups, a powerful 18V preamp, the enhanced American Elite contoured neck heel and compound neck shape, and the American Elite adjustable truss rod adjustment wheel.

    The Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V sports that iconic double cutaway Jazz Bass body made from alder (3-Color Sunburst, Black, or Olympic White finishes) or ash (Natural or Tobacco Sunburst finishes). Taking the playability of this legendary bass to all new heights, the American Elite Jazz Bass V features the ergonomic American Elite neck heel for amazing comfort when playing in the upper registers as well as the compound "C" to "D"-shaped maple neck and compound-radius (9.5"-14") fretboard for an incredible playing feel. The neck also comes equipped with an all-new truss rod adjustment wheel for quick, easy neck relief adjustments.

    Under the hood, the American Elite Jazz Bass V comes loaded up with exclusive American Elite electronics which include a pair of 4th generation Noiseless pickups and an ultra-powerful 18V preamp. The revolutionary 4th generation Noiseless pickups give you that genuine vintage-inspired Fender tone while offering cutting-edge noise-free performance. The 18V preamp offers outstanding sonic flexibility, increased signal quality, more headroom, and less noise. The preamp controls include a passive/active 2-way toggle switch, a Master Volume knob, a Pan Pot (pickup selector) knob, a passive Tone control, and a 3-band EQ when active mode is engaged.

    The American Elite Jazz Bass V comes fitted with a genuine bone nut and high-performance nickel/chrome hardware including a set of Fender "F" Lightweight Vintage-Paddle tuners and a HiMass Vintage bridge (string-through-body or topload). Comes complete with a redesigned ABS Elite Molded case with TSA locks for superior protection.
