Fender American Professional Jazz Bass 3-Color Sunburst
This American Professional Jazz Bass is made from an alder body with a gloss polyurethane, classic 3-Color Sunburst shade, complemented nicely by a 3-ply mint green scratchplate. The neck is made from maple with a "Slim C" profile, 24" scale, 9.5" radius, and a rosewood fingerboard with 20 Narrow-Tall frets. The new neck profile enhances comfort and performance, along with the the new fret size which makes bending notes easier. The bass is equipped with two Michael Bump-designed V-Mod single coil Jazz Bass pickups, which are modified versions of Fender's classic vintage pickup designs. "These single-coil pickups use alnico 5 magnets on the treble side and alnico 2 on the bass side to deliver classic tone with all the vintage warmth and crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend." The Jazz also features new fluted shaft tuning machines, resulting in greater sustain and tuning stability, along with Posiflex Graphite rods, to reinforce against movement in the neck which can occur due to changes in the environment around it.
