  •     Dual all-new fourth-generation Noiseless Jazz Bass single-coil pickups

ALL-NEW AMERICAN ELITE NECK

Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern "C"-shape at the nut, the rear of the neck morphs along the length of the neck to a modern "D"-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of ergonomic support.


ALL-NEW 4th GENERATION NOISELESS PICKUPS

With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, we’ve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of our pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.


ALL-NEW AMERICAN ELITE NECK HEEL


For improved upper register access and elegantly functional modern style, the American Elite Series' new cutaway neck heel blends into the asymmetrical neck volute for comfortably enhanced playing feel.


NEW 18V PREAMP

The redesigned robust 18-volt preamp cranks up the power for even more signal quality, creating chest-thumping tone with more headroom and reduced noise. Working in tandem with the muscular Noiseless pickups, the new preamp adds a even more tonal versatility to your instrument.


NEW TRUSS ROD ADJUSTMENT WHEEL

The new truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief.


ALL-NEW AMERICAN ELITE CASE

The redesigned Elite Molded Case features body-hugging contours to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument, nested stacking ability for easy storage and more secure transport and TSA latches for increased security.
