A Seismic Shift

Evolved for today's musician, the American Professional Jazz Bass Fretless combines modern features and materials with Fender's craftsmanship and expertise to produce a truly contemporary bass.

    V-Mod Pickups
    V-Mod Pickups

    V-Mod Jazz Bass pickups are modified versions of our 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.

    Slim “Modern C” Neck Profile
    Slim “Modern C” Neck Profile

    This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a slim, modern “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), 9.5” fingerboard radius and narrow-tall frets.

    FRETLESS FINGERBOARD
    FRETLESS FINGERBOARD

    There’s nothing like the slippery, fluid and elastic tone of a fretless Jazz Bass. A distinctly classic Fender sound since the early 1970s, it’s in better form than ever today with the American Professional Jazz Bass Fretless model.

    New Fluted-Shaft Tuning Machines
    New Fluted-Shaft Tuning Machines

    Wider at the top than the bottom, the fluted shafts force the string windings downward and keep them tight, resulting in a sharper and consistent break angle over the nut, creating increased sustain and better tuning stability.

    Posiflex™ Graphite Rods
    Posiflex™ Graphite Rods

    All American Professional bass necks incorporate Posiflex graphite rods to reinforce against movement that can occur with fluctuations the environment. Embedded beneath the fingerboard, they improve reliability on the road, in the studio or in your home.

    Bone Nut
    Bone Nut

    An original-era Fender design element, a bone nut contributes to superior tone and performance. Many players consider bone nuts to be more “organic” sounding.
