Fender American Ultra Jazz Bass - Maple Fingerboard
The Fender American Ultra Jazz Bass is Fender's most advanced take on the iconic bass guitar. With its selection of upgrades and modern appointments, this Ultra Jazz Bass delivers the ultimate in feel, performance and tone.
The American Ultra Jazz Bass takes inspiration from the original Jazz Bass, with its instantly recognisable body design, but looks to the future and the demands of the modern player, with its high performance feel. A new, ultra satin finished Modern D profiled neck, complete with rolled fingerboard edges and a tapered neck heel, allow for supreme playing comfort whilst giving access to the higher register. The maple fingerboard (set with 22 medium jumbo frets and dot inlays), has a speedy 10"-14" compound radius, perfect for laying down solid grooves and happy to adapt when soloing or chordal work may be required.
The bass offers an extremely versatile tonal range, with sounds to suit any application. The pair of Ultra Noiseless Jazz Bass pickups deliver classic Jazz Bass tones, with plenty of warmth, clarity, and articulation but without any of that unwanted noise. The two pickups are wired through a master volume, pan pot (pickup selector) and 3-band eq, giving access to a huge array of tones, something any modern day bassist will truly appreciate.
The 4-saddle HiMass has been designed to increase note attack and resonance for those massive basslines as well as boosting the punch of every note and allowing for superb sustain. At the other end, Fender "F" lightweight vintage paddle tuners with tapered shafts allow for rock solid tuning whilst adding to the superb balance of the bass. The package comes complete with an Elite Moulded Case.
With its array of contemporary appointments, classic styling, exceptional feel and modern tone, the Fender Ultra Jazz Bass is a true performer ready for any stage!
