Alder Body & Maple Neck

Constructed from an alder body with bolt-on maple neck the American Elite Jazz Bass provides the iconic playability of traditional Jazz bass guitars with heaps of sustain and warm, rounded tone. The alder body is light in weight to reduce stress during long playing sessions whilst the stunning maple neck with compound radius ensures once you pick up the American Elite Jazz Bass, you will never want to put it down.

4th Generation Noiseless Pickups

Fender’s all-new fourth-generation Noiseless pickups are the latest innovation in pickup technology. Exclusive to the American Elite series, the Noiseless pickups combine modern noise-free performance with authentic vintage-style sound that without sacrificing tone. A redesigned robust 18-volt preamp cranks up the power for even more signal quality for chest-thumping tone with more headroom and reduced noise. The on board 18v preamp also features a 3-band active EQ for advanced tone shaping, perfect for achieving a powerful and full tone.

Innovative Compound Neck Radius

Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5"-14" compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern "C" shape at the new genuine bone nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern "D" shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics.

Heel Truss Rod Adjustment

Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting temperature- and humidity-induced warping. In a vintage-inspired touch, the new truss rod adjustment wheel has been moved to the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments a snap.

HiMass Vintage String Thru Bridge

The Fender American Elite Jazz Bass incorporates a new HiMass Vintage bridge to increase note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with mammoth punch and near-endless sustain. The string thru body design of the American Elite Jazz Bass also provides improved resonance and sustain and the vibrations transfer from the bridge to the tone wood as they pass over the bridge and through the body.
