(SOLD) Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass Olympic White 2015
Fender American Deluxe Jazz, olympic white, made in USA 2015. This is really good, it works very well indeed. The American Deluxe series was a couple of notches above the most basic USA offerings, so you get some tasty appointments. It's got a pair of noiseless single-coil pickups and an active pre-amp, so you can dial in a huge punchy tone with the bass and treble boosted, or switch to passive mode for a more vintage-style tone. The adjustable bridge is clever, the tuners are lightweight and super smooth, it's got an extra string tree for the A-string... it all works well. Aesthetically, this borrows the bold decals, bound fretboard and block inlays from the mid-seventies models, which paired with the creamy white finish looks amazing. The neck features some pretty birds-eye grain in the maple on the back and headstock, it's a really lovely-looking piece of wood and feels equally slick and reassuring in the hands. This is a proper pro bass, if you're looking for a reliable working companion this will surely perform admirably.
