Product Description

The Fender Modern Player Jazz Electric Bass Guitar is a volcanic take on the time-honored Fender Jazz Bass. Thanks to its dual Modern Player humbucking Jazz Bass pickups, this instrument produces thick, beefy tone that still maintains that great J-bass flavor. The classic combination of an alder body and C-shaped maple neck provide great tone and a comfortable feel.

  • C-shaped maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with 9.5 inch radius and 20 jumbo frets

Do not hesitate to choose a Fender Modern Player Jazz Electric Bass Guitar
What is your overall opinion of this product?
This bass is a pleasure to play, and I am accustomed to playing a short scale bass only. Sweet pups (pickups) with lovely setup in the string department. All I had to do was completely re-tune it to standard EADG. (This was a scratch and dent demo item that I gave a home.) Now, I have a very small hand and short stubby fingers without normal use of my left fretting hand/fingers, and this bass is still a pleasure to play in my limited capacity.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I am not in a position to answer this in any extent. I play with one other, a singer/guitarist, and we cover tunes written and/or recorded by The Beatles, Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, Joan Baez, The Statler Brothers, Johnny Cash and June Carter (Cash) and the list goes on through 60's radio hits into gospel and beyond. I am flat out in love with my Fender Modern Player Jazz Bass.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
As for the features, it's simply a passive, two-pickup bass with a volume control knob for each pup, i.e. the middle pup and the bridge pup. The third knob is for tone. Easy breezy.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Fast neck, rather slim, not chunky. Stays where it should when you stand up to play. Bass itself is heavy. If it will be your first bass, you will soon become spoiled by learning on it. I own and play a Squire, Epiphone SG faded, Yamaha, Ibanez, Epiphone Toby and Epiphone Viola and I'll be making this Fender Modern Player Jazz Bass an available choice for all my future sets.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
I have yet to explore the range of tonal qualities and capabilities, but the response is immediate and clear with each strike. (I play both finger style and with a pick, depending upon the tune at hand.)
How did the stain or paint job look?
Beautiful. I bought the three-tone sunburst. I've wanted a three-tone sunburst something since I first saw my neighbor's vintage Fender Stratocaster. Lovely. As stated previously, I bought a scratch 'n' dent item, but I don't mind the rather large crunch-spot near the end pin. The looks don't make the music better or worse.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I'm happy, and I'm a real scrooge.
How was the action out of the box?
Didn't change a thing. Perfect for my satisfaction. As stated above, I only had to re-tune to EADG and then rock and roll!
