Overview

The Fender American Professional Series Jazz Bass V combines the tonal versatility of a five-string model with a slew of appointments and upgrades for one formidable instrument. Centered around a V-Mod Single-Coil J Bass pickup designed by low-end aficionado Michael Bump, the smooth, even warmth inherent for this bass is complemented by a vintage roundness that immediately recalls the model's origins. Completed with a svelte "Modern C" neck, narrow slant frets, and a HiMass Vintage bridge for peerless intonation, the American Professional Jazz Bass V is the next step forward for a monolith in the realm of music gear.

I knew about the American Pro quality already - better necks, bridges, pickups and frets, so it was not surprise that the …
