FEATURES
  • Dual single-coil pickups
  • Comfortable modern neck profile and fingerboard radius
  • Posiflex™ graphite neck support rods
  • Combination string-through/top-load high-mass bridge
  • Lightweight vintage-style tuners
MODERN NECK

This American Standard instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile and a smooth satin-finish back. The fingerboard features a modern 9.5” radius, with comfortably rolled edges for instantly “broken in” feel and medium jumbo frets.

FENDER HMV BRIDGE

American Standard bass guitars feature Fender High Mass Vintage (HMV) bridges that combine stylishly classic looks with superior modern intonation, sustain and adjustability for pro-level tone and performance. Versatile design accommodates player preference for top-load or through-body string attachment.

CUSTOM SHOP PICKUPS

This instrument is equipped with two powerful Fender Custom Shop ’60s single-coil pickups for pure Jazz Bass tone with full low end, growling midrange and singing high end.

POLYURETHANE FINISH WITH THIN UNDERCOAT

This finish offers the superior look and durability of polyurethane, applied to a thinner undercoat that lets the instrument’s body wood flex, breathe and resonate more freely for a more unconstrained and natural-sounding voice.

GRAPHITE NECK SUPPORT RODS

To keep the neck straight and true with even greater reinforcement, American Standard basses feature graphite neck support rods in addition to the truss rod that distribute string tension more evenly and add mass that helps eliminate troublesome dead spots.

FENDER “F” VINTAGE-STYLE TUNERS WITH “PADDLE” KEYS AND TAPERED POSTS

American Standard basses feature smooth-operating vintage-style tuners with thin, flat “paddle” keys and stamped with the classic stylized Fender “F”. Tapered posts help anchor bass strings in place neatly and efficiently.
