The new Fender® American Special basses bring you the latest in U.S.-built quality and value. The American Special Jazz Bass guitar features a slim neck profile, a high-gloss finish and the Fender Greasebucket™ tone circuit, which rolls off highs while maintaining low-end definition.

Features include an alder body and C-shaped maple neck, maple fretboard (Black, Candy Apple Red models) or rosewood fretboard (Olympic White, Three-color Sunburst models) with medium jumbo frets, single-coil alnico Jazz Bass pickups, vintage-style black plastic Jazz Bass knobs, three-ply pickguard (black-white black on Candy Apple Red and Olympic White models; parchment on Black and Three-color Sunburst models), vintage-style bridge and strap buttons, and deluxe gig bag.
