Fender American Professional Jazz Bass Sunburst 2016
Fender American Pro Jazz Bass, sunburst, 2016. This is a perfect working player's bass, it'll cover just about any gig with grace and poise. The Am Pro series replaced the long running and lauded American Standard, so this has some good heritage. The newer model offers a new take on the noiseless single coil pickups, an updated 'slim C' profile neck, new lightweight tuners and a high mass bridge; all sensible appointments that work well. The neck is superbly solid, it feels great in the hands and would make easy company on a long gig. The sunburst finish ha a lovely depth and sheen to it, the grain of the alder is on show in vivid detail. Tone-wise, this has that classic Jazz Bass growl and definition; there's heaps of clarity and cut on deck balanced by a tight and thick low end. This could almost pass for new, so save yourself some proper cash off the shelf price and get playing!
