A Seismic Shift

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.

Narrow-Tall Frets
Narrow-Tall Frets

Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation.

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.
