Fender introduces new American Deluxe Series Basses
The latest incarnations of Fender's acclaimed American Deluxe series bass guitar models are designed to deliver high-tech cutting-edge tone, tradition and innovation to the modern bassist.
All three instruments: the American Deluxe Precision Bass, American Deluxe Jazz Bass and American Deluxe Jazz Bass V, are conceived as tonally sophisticated modern iterations of these timeless instruments. All feature a wealth of groundbreaking advances, including powerful-yet-quiet new N3 Noiseless pickups, improved electronics that result in increased headroom and tighter low-end response, and an active/passive toggle switch and passive tone control (for passive mode).
All three also feature an A-string "stealth" string retainer on the headstock (low B string on the Jazz Bass V model), high-mass vintage bridge, tinted neck with Posiflex graphite neck support rods and contoured heel for easier access to upper frets, five-bolt neck plate, rolled fingerboard edges, highly detailed fret work and genuine bone nut, flat head battery compartment screws (for changing easily using a coin or pick), and black pearl or white pearloid fretboard inlays (dot inlays on Precision model, block inlays on both Jazz models).
Both Jazz Bass models have classic-looking neck binding. And in a major new first for a Fender bass guitar, the Jazz Bass V model boasts a compound radius fingerboard and asymmetrical neck profile for fast action and smooth playability all the way up the neck.
