Fender Jazz Bass 5 USA Sunburst 2000 Bass Guitar
For sale is Fender Jazz Bass 5 American Standard 2000 in a classical Sunburst color with alder body, maple neck and Pao Ferro fingerboard. I have a video-test of this guitar. The condition is amazing functionally and good concerning the looks. Why good? Because it’s not a new bass; it’s already 15 years old, but it preserved a good condition. I haven’t found any extreme cosmetic defects; it is used, but a very good-looking bass. Sound: It has a classical alder jazz bass sound, but at the same time, it sounds rightly. The sound is warm, thick and dense. At the same time, the instrument sounds transparently and clear at high range. All notes are clear and well-balanced. The wood is rightly selected; the bass has a good resonance and is very responsive. Pao Ferro fingerboard is more resonant than rosewood, which makes this bass more resonant at slap and attack; so, this instrument will pleasantly surprise those who like to give more attack. The 5th string works well, and it is solid and sound clear. The tone is very pleasant. Tuning and convenience: Neck profile is pleasant. Distance between the strings is rather big, which allows switching from the 4-string jazz bass to the 5-string one. The bass is well-tuned and the strings are set rather low in regard to the neck. It is very comfortable to play it. Packaging: The bass comes with the hardshell case; the strings are new. General outcome and my subjective opinion: It is a very good and right Fender American Standard exemplar. Select wood together with well-designed electronics help to get the necessary sound that is relevant both in studios and at live concerts. For those who look for the right classical jazz bass sound with the use of 5th string to widen the sound rage and for fingering convenience, this bass will be a great choice! This bass guitar is available and you can buy it right now!
