$1,399.99

Up for sale, a 2015 Fender American Professional Jazz Bass in showroom clean condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original case and upgraded EMG J System. The American Professional Jazz Bass is a recent incarnation of Fender's iconic upscale bass model, designed from the ground up to offer an ideal gigging and recording instrument. Tonewoods include an alder body and maple neck with a Modern C profile carve, capped with a thick slab rosewood fretboard.

Well-balanced at 9lbs 7oz, this bass benefits from the ample sustain of the string through body design, providing a range of defined tones which translate well through the upgraded active EMG J System. With great breadth and clarity, EMG's J pickup design has a very low ratio of resistance to inductance, which increases the low end response, while the radiused ceramic bar magnet ensures a tight midrange punch and dynamic trebles. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar and dialed in with fresh 45-100 roundwound strings, this Jazz Bass is ready for stage and studio work.

The maple neck has a Modern C neck profile carve, a slender rounded shape that gains more shoulder and heft as you travel up the fretboard, measuring .820” deep at the 1st fret and .935” at the 12th. The thick slab rosewood fretboard features a modern 9 1/2“ radius and pristine medium jumbo fretwire. The bass plays cleanly in every register up the straight neck with an ideally adjusted and responsive truss rod. The scale length is 34“, and the nut measures 1 1/2“ in width. The headstock is fitted with original tuners, designed to provide a reliable modern gear ratio while being lightweight.

The bass has been upgraded with EMG’s active J System, featuring a new control plate with individual Volume knobs and a Master Tone, capped with black EMG-branded knobs. The chrome hardware is gleaming, and a reddish-brown tortoise pickguard rounds out the plastics. The gloss Olympic White finish has barely a scratch on it, and the smooth satin neck profile is flawless.

The original molded Fender hardshell case is included.
