Fender Releases American Standard Jaguar Bass

June 17, 2014

Scottsdale, AZ (June 11, 2014) -- Fender’s first U.S.-made Jaguar bass is a sleek and powerful beauty, upgraded with a versatile P/J pickup configuration, combination top-load/stringthrough-body high-mass vintage bridge, lightweight Fender “F” tuners with A-string retainer, and body-end truss rod adjustment.

The split-single-coil Precision Bass pickup is made with alnico 5 magnets, while the single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup has ceramic bar magnets with hex-screw pole pieces. All the other great Jaguar Bass features are here too, including the fast and comfortable maple neck, 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and elegant aged white pearloid block inlays, multi-ply pickguard, lower horn pickup on/off and series/parallel switching, and upper-horn active/passive switch for dual-circuit design with inset bass and treble control wheels. Hard-shell case included.
