Fender Fretless American Standard Jazz Bass Guitar
The Flagship of Fender's Fretless Bass Lineup
The Fretless American Standard Jazz bass is Fender's modern take on the unmistakable and great sounding fretless bass. They designed it in such a way so you, the player, can effortlessly enjoy the sound of a fretless instrument. Though it's very modern oriented, it's very vintage inspired. It can come in a classic sunburst finish, or all black with a white pickguard. In both cases a polyurethane finish was used with a thin undercoat, so the wood can breathe a little bit. You also get Custom Shop designed Jazz Bass pickups, a graphite reinforced neck, and a lot more.
- Custom shop designed pickups
- Graphite reinforced neck
- HMV bridge
Custom Shop Designed Pickups
Fender didn't want to mess around with this bass. The pickups were designed by the Fender Custom Shop and they deliver a full sounding low end, punchy mid-range, and soaring highs. Exactly what most of us already expect out of a good bass pickup, but it especially sounds good with the nuances you can create with a fretless bass.
Graphite Reinforced Neck
Since this neck doesn't yield any frets to keep everything in line, Fender fashioned a neck that has graphite neck support rods in addition to a truss rod so the string tension is kept even, and a little extra mass is added to get rid of dead spots.
Fender's HMV bridge was fashioned to fit modern needs but take after the looks of vintage bridges. It's very versatile, which is normally a word we don't associate with bridges because they typically have one use, but in this case you have the choice to feed your strings through the body or through the back of the bridge, depending on your preference. And it's sleek look is truly satisfying, whether or not you want to admit that there's a lot of aesthetic appeal that goes into rocking onstage.
For the crazed bassists who really want to stick out, the Fretless American Standard J Bass is just for you. Check it out!
