The highly acclaimed Fender Select series introduces an all-new lineup for 2013. These finely crafted guitars and basses put decades of Fender expertise on display, with elegant features and design options for discerning musicians everywhere. Experience the latest figured tops, beautiful finishes, choice tone woods, figured and quartersawn maple necks with compound-radius fingerboards, an innovative new "inlaid" fingerboard design on two of the models, specially voiced pickups, and several new first-rate features that mark Fender's top-line best as remarkable instruments.
Like its passive-electronics 2012 predecessor, the Fender Select Active Jazz Bass® takes our most versatile bass to new heights of elegance and power. Its alder body has a flame maple top and a beautiful hand-stained Tobacco Sunburst finish with gloss-lacquer topcoat. The modern "C"-shaped quartersawn maple neck has a comfortable contoured heel, satin lacquer finish and Posiflex™ graphite support rods; the compound-radius rosewood fingerboard (9.5"-14") has 20 medium jumbo frets and stylish white pearloid block position inlays.
Other premium features include dual Fender Select Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, active/passive mini-toggle switch, master volume knob and pickup pan knob, three-band active EQ (treble, mid and bass boost/cut knobs), three-ply parchment pickguard, high-mass vintage-style bridge (strings-through-body or top-load), vintage-style tuners with tapered shafts, and Fender Select headstock medallion.
