From stem to stern, these American-made beauties are built for top form and performance. Onboard each one you'll find two vintage-kissed Yosemite Alnico V passive pickups with modern electronics for clean, low-noise output. Fender's smooth, satiny maple modern "C" neck is formed for comfort and speed, and its lightweight alder body promises long-lasting great performance without you breaking a sweat. Modern departures from the classic J include Fender's Greasebucket tone circuit, which smooths out top end without adding bass or rolling back volume, offering a high degree of hands-on control right from your instrument. Factor in a host of great finish and fingerboard options, and the Fender American Performer Jazz Bass checks all the right boxes in our book — all at a competitive price that meets working musicians where they live.
