The Fender American Standard Jazz Bass V 5-String features an alder body with the legendary ‘comfort contour’ and offset waist design that was way ahead of its time. The body is outfitted with a pair of Fender American Standard Jazz Bass single-coil pickups that deliver those clear, punchy, Jazz Bass tones that were the driving force behind an endless list of bands throughout the decades. The addition of the low B string will take you into new sonic territory.
