Fender Limited Edition Light Ash American Professional Jazz Bass – Rosewood Fretboard – Sienna Sunburst
Ash was the tonewood of choice for the earliest Telecaster designs, back in the ’50s – the first mass produced electric guitars. As a tip of the hat to this crucial part of Fender’s history, they’ve used Lightweight Ash for these unique models. This tonewood is known for its balanced resonance with a slight scoop in the midrange, as well as its more reserved grain patterns.
Add special finishes and modern hardware to the mix, and you’ve got a selection of instruments with heaps of character. The combination of vintage woods and modern design appointments make these guitars truly stand out from the crowd.

Speedy, powerful and articulate, the Jazz Bass quickly carved out a niche for itself when it was released in 1960. The slim, ultra-fast neck and slick offset-waist styling made it a favorite of bassists everywhere. Funk, fusion, disco and, of course, modern rock all owe a life debt to the fantastically versatile Jazz Bass.
Developed by pickup master Michael Bump, the V-Mod single-coil Jazz Bass pickups use a carefully selected blend of alnico magnet types for balanced tone with authentic Fender sonic DNA. Designed for comfort and performance, the slim modern “C”-shaped neck profile feels just right nestled in your hand, while the narrow-tall frets provide a familiar playing feel and perfect intonation. Posiflex™ graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting warping. The redesigned tuning machines use a fluted shaft, creating the optimum break angle over the nut while keeping the string windings tight for increased sustain and enhanced tuning stability.
The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Jazz Bass is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.
