V-Mod Jazz Bass pickups are modified versions of our classic vintage pickup designs. Packed with the fundamental Fender bass sound you know and love, these single-coil pickups crank out high-output tone with vintage warmth and the crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend.
At Fender, we live and breathe electric instruments. We never rest—pushing craftsmanship to its limits, we design, test and endlessly experiment to create the best instruments on the planet. The Jazz Bass, a refinement of concepts first introduced in the Precision Bass, is the earliest example of this philosophy in action. Evolved for today’s musician, the American Professional Jazz Bass Fretless combines modern features and materials with Fender’s craftsmanship and expertise to produce a truly contemporary bass.

There’s nothing like the slippery, fluid and elastic tone of a fretless Jazz Bass. A distinctly classic Fender sound since the early 1970s, it’s in better form than ever today with the American Professional Jazz Bass Fretless model.
Wider at the top than the bottom, the fluted shafts force the string windings downward and keep them tight, resulting in a sharper and consistent break angle over the nut, creating increased sustain and better tuning stability.
