Product Description

Packed full of Fender’s latest revolutionary innovations, the American Elite Jazz Bass V is an active 5-string bass for the modern bassist who demands cutting-edge tone technology along with timeless style and fast, smooth playing feel. Its versatile sound easily matches any playing style with a fresh twist —picked, plucked or slap-and-pop—while its standout looks remain authentically Fender.

Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V Features

  • Pearloid Block Position Inlays
  • Bound Fingerboard with Rolled Fingerboard Edges and Highly Detailed Nut and Fret Work
  • Improved Electronics Resulting in Increased Headroom and Tighter Low-End Response
  • 18-Volt Power Supply
  • Active/Passive Mini-Toggle Switch
  • Passive Tone Control for Passive Mode
  • Single Disk String Tree with Stealth “A” String Retainer
  • HMV Bridge with Chromed Brass Saddles and Black Plate, and Chromed Steel Base Plate
  • Lightly Tinted Neck

  • 5-Bolt Neck Plate

  • Includes an Elite Molded hardshell case with TSA locks 
With the exclusive all-new fourth-generation Noiseless pickups we’ve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—vintage-style response with completely noise-free performance. These muscular pickups are fueled by a redesigned robust 18-volt preamp, cranking up the power for even more signal quality and chest-thumping tone with more headroom and reduced noise. 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 synthetic 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 movement. Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability while resisting temperature and humidity-induced warping. The HiMass Vintage bridge increases note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with colossal punch and boundless sustain while allowing either top-load or string-thru-body stringing. 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.

This bass is packed with Fender’s immortal aesthetics—ergonomic contours to the black chrome headstock logo, large pearloid fret markers and new colors that showcases its slick style. The American Elite Jazz Bass V is a bold new bass for adventurous bassists who need a tonal multi-tool that refuses to compromise on any front. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded hardshell case with body-hugging contours and TSA locks to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument.

This is by far the best bass I have ever owned and I have owned a lot of basses.
What is your opinion of this product?
This bass has a very warm tone, but can growl when you dig in. The slap tone as well as the finger tone is like no other. Will never need another bass.

A Jazz Bass on Esteroides
What is your opinion of this product?
Fender has come along way to compite with the Boutique Jazz Basses that are on the market. The ergonomic neck is superconfortable, the fret work is impeccable, tone is killer which reflects the combination of woods on Passive mode. Engaging the Preamp gives a full pallette of modern and vintage tones from rounded and punchy P bass, Jaco sound or modern. Finger or Slap this is a solid bass to cover any style of music.

Couldn’t be more pleased
What is your opinion of this product?
Over the years I’ve been blessed to own many basses. Without question, my latest, the Fender American Elite Jazz Bass has become my favorite. From the craftsmanship, tone versatility and reliability of this instrument, I could not be more pleased. Upon completion of this payment I intend on placing a new order for the Fender American Deluxe. As it stands now I have purchased 3 Fender Basses, the TC Electronic RH 450, TC Electronic RS 410 and the Roland Ghaia through AMS. I’m certain like myself other musicians are grateful for AMS and it’s amazing customer service, helping musicians to purchase top of the line gear! American Musical Supply simply Rocks!????
