Fender Player Jazz Bass 5-String
The Fender Player Jazz Bass V is a 5-string version of the legendary bass guitar. For many players the additional low B string is hugely important, not only adding extra range, but also giving players access to a larger selection of notes without shifting up and down the neck.
Fender have treated the Player Jazz Bass V to a pair of traditional Player Series single coil pickups. Wired through a simple 3-way control section, with volumes for each pickup and a master tone control, you have instant access to all those classic Jazz Bass tones. Get warmth and punch from the neck pickup and growl, bark and mid honk from the bridge pickup, then combine the two via each pickups volume control for added tonal versatility.
Construction wise, the Fender Player Jazz Bass utilizes an alder body that is complimented with a classic style scratchplate. The highly playable maple neck has a comfortable modern C shape profile and is topped with 9.5" radius fingerboard set with 20 medium jumbo frets.
Other features include the 5-saddle bridge and open-gear chrome tuners, for solid tuning stability, and a vintage style 50s spaghetti Fender logo on the headstock.
Thanks to its affordable price point the Fender Player Jazz Bass opens the door for players to get some of that J Bass goodness, both in looks and sound, without breaking the bank.
