Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this new Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V! For the player who demands only the very best in functionality and tone, the American Elite Jazz Bass delivers in whopping proportions. A super tight B-string gets you that extended range that can rattle the walls. The sound of this bass is the same rich, dynamic tone that has kept the J bass in Fender's production line for years. The Fender preamp can be shaped to give you anything from super round and mellow tones to in-your-face growl. It's great for slapping, fingerstyle, or playing with a pick. The feel and playability are unsurpassed - the neck is smooth and easy to move around on. The construction is solid and the fretwork is immaculate on this. Many Fender loyalists may notice some striking similarities between the American Elite series and the (now discontinued) American Deluxe series of basses. Rightfully so. You can expect the same high-quality build and luscious tonal options out of the American Elite series that helped make the American Deluxe basses so sought after by hobbyists and pros alike. Fender has revamped the pickups slightly to give them a more true single coil tone. You really get the full benefits of single coil tone without any of that annoying 60-cycle hum. The Fender American Elite series of basses gives you a very familiar Fender feel and sound but with a higher build quality. This isn't just a renamed American Deluxe Jazz bass. It's an upgraded and improved version. It truly is Elite!
