Up for sale, a 2021 Fender American Professional II Jazz Bass in showroom clean condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hangtags, COA, and hardshell case. The American Professional II Jazz Bass is the latest incarnation of Fender's iconic upscale bass model, designed from the ground up to offer an ideal gigging and recording instrument with an alder, maple neck, and slab rosewood fretboard. Features include a Slim C neck profile, contoured neck heel, and pair of V-Mod II single coil pickups, engineered to provide a blend of power and old-school low end.
Designed by pickup guru Tim Shaw, the V-Mod single coils produce the warm and natural tones of vintage pickups, while delivering the clarity and dynamic range of some of today's best designs. The alder also provides a clear, balanced natural tonal platform for the pickups. Weighing 9lbs 15oz and professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this Jazz Bass is strung with fresh 45-100 roundwound strings, dialed in with low action and accurate intonation.
The maple neck has a slender and inviting Slim C shape, measuring .775" deep at the 1st fret and .880" at the 12th. It's a particularly comfortable profile with a silky smooth satin finish and lightly rolled fretboard edges. The thick slab rosewood fretboard has a modern 9 1/2" radius and flawless “narrow-tall” fretwire. The bass offers Fender's traditional 34" scale, and the bone nut measures 1 1/2" in width. The headstock is fitted with clover button tuners designed to provide a reliable modern gear ratio while being lightweight.
All of the electronics function as they should, with nigh flawless chrome plated hardware including Fender's HiMass string through body bridge. Plastics include a dark red tortoise pickguard which contrasts with the Olympic White gloss finish. There is barely a scratch on the gloss body finish, and the satin neck profile finish is equally pristine.
The original molded Fender hardshell case is included, along with the original hangtags and COA.
