Fender hit a giant bass home run in 1960 by introducing its deluxe-model four-string instrument the Jazz Bass guitar. With its sleek offset body; thin, fast neck and rich, growling tone, it was a raring, roaring race car of a bass that quickly established itself as a must-have instrument.
The new American Standard Jazz five-string basses feature a new high-mass vintage bridge, a thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, new and improved Fender tuning keys that keep the classic look but are 30 percent lighter, a richer and deeper neck tint for a more elegant appearance, a great-looking glossed maple or rosewood fingerboard and satin back for smooth playability, and a new Fender-exclusive SKB molded case.
