Standard guitars and basses bring authentic Fender designs and sound to a whole new generation of players.
THE STANDARD IN JAZZ BASS STYLE
Combining traditional design with contemporary features, the left-handed Standard Jazz Bass is an elegant and affordable classic designed for the bassist who appreciates great style, rich and versatile tone, and excellent value. Time-honored Fender style and performance-minded modern upgrades don’t have to break the bank, and this model delivers the best of both in a design ideal for Jazz Bass players everywhere at every level.
STANDARD SINGLE-COIL JAZZ BASS PICKUP
In more than half a century of Fender history and modern music history, there’s really nothing like the timeless guttural growl and singing high end of a Jazz Bass, coming from a clear, punchy and powerful-sounding pair of Fender Standard single-coil Jazz Bass pickups.
MODERN C NECK
This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish. Ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
AUTHENTIC FENDER TONE AND STYLING
Pure and simple, this instrument features classic Fender tone styling that evokes and honors the timeless Fender mainstays that came before it and contributed crucial DNA. From the quietest chord to the loudest note, and from the rear strap button to the top of the headstock, it’s the very essence of classic Fender design.
