Fender’s Player Series: vintage vibe, modern edge
For their new Player Series basses, Fender went back to the drawing board with updated radii for more historically accurate body shapes, new vintage-inspired finishes, and a classic logo that harkens back to the Fenders of yesteryear. But these smooth-playing instruments also look to the future with new Alnico 5 pickups that crank out legendary Fender tone by the boatload. There’s never been a better time to get into a genuine Fender bass. Pick up a Player Series bass and lay down the groove with a modern classic.
The timeless J Bass sound
Whether you play rock or country, funk or blues, or (naturally) jazz, the Player Series Jazz Bass will deliver the tone you need. This 5-string J Bass comes loaded with a pair of Fender-designed Player Series Alnico 5 single-coil pickups that deliver the classic J Bass sound you’ve heard on countless recordings. And with individual volume controls for each pickup plus a master tone control, you’ll be able to dial in the exact sound you want.
Shaped for comfort and performance
One of the things that made the J Bass an instant hit with working bass players was its unique offset-waist body shape. Perfect whether playing standing or seated, the classic Jazz Bass contoured body will make those marathon gigs and sessions much more comfortable. With its modern C-profile maple neck and 9.5″-radius fingerboard, this instrument not only facilitates the fluid execution of fast, complex bass lines; it’s also perfect for any musical style — which is why you hear the 5-string Fender Jazz Bass in every genre of music.
