More about Modern Player Jazz Bass® V Satin

Der Modern Player Jazz Bass ist zurück – als Fünfsaiter im neuen Look und mit einer noch größeren Klangvielfalt, die von zwei leistungsstarken Humbuckern erzeugt wird. Das matte Finish verleiht ihm einen leichten Hauch von Eleganz, und ein bequemer neuer 4-Wege-Drehschalter liefert ein kraftvolles Quartet von Pickup-Kombinationen: Mittel- und Steg-Pickups, Mittel-Pickup und Steg-Pickup (äußere Spule), Steg-Pickup und Mittel-Pickup (äußere Spule), äußere Spule beider Pickups.

Zu den Highlights des Basses gehören ein Erlenkorpus, ein C-förmiger Ahornhals, ein Griffbrett aus Ahornholz (Modell Black) oder Palisander (Modelle Olympic White und Two-Color Sunburst) mit 9,5’’-Radius und 20 Jumbo Frets sowie einem leicht zugänglichen Halsstab-Einstellrad, Modern Player Jazz Bass Humbucker im neuen Design, ein einlagiges schwarzes Pickguard und schwarze Kunststoffregler im Vintage-Style (zwei Volume und Master Tone Regler) sowie eine 5 Saddle Fender Hi-Mass Bridge. Erhältlich in Satin Black, Satin Olympic White und Satin Two-color Sunburst.

I've played on jazz basses for years but I always thought something was missing somehow....
I switched to P bass and still the same, all good but something was missing...
Then Modern Player jazz bass came...and the void was filled...
Congratulations, rich sound and affordable price.... good combination

A real Fender !

danny100 on April 2, 2014 (updated April 2, 2014)

Since the 29th of march, I am the owner of this Jazz Bass and she is really amazing. Amazing because when you play it with your eyes closed, the neck really feels like if you are playing a four-string JB!
There is also an amazing choice in sound, thanks to the four-position rotary pickup selector. And you are still able to adjust with the volume and tone controls!
The body has the same size and the neck has the same length as the classic JB.
Only the pickguard looks a bit cheap and that really is a shame, because otherwise the bass is almost perfect for me.

I really love this bass. I played it at a local music shop. Its beautiful and plays amazing! You can get just about any sound you want out of this beast. I would love to buy one, but I just cant seem to get over the fact that its made in China... An American version of this bass would be mine in a heartbeat! (if it existed)

I was looking for a second passive bass and then I cracked the top ..
Finish Top!
Sound really "jazz bass"!
Electronic states.
Its balanced.
reasonable weight
Neat finish.
attractive price
This bass is truly impressive, with real skills slap of course!
One downside: a pity that we can not select the single coils 1 and 3 ..
So I highly recommend this bass ..

I was really impressed with the spit and polish on this mid-priced bass. The Satin finish is total eye candy and there is even subtle flaming in the fretboard. The hardware and electronics are solid and clean and it holds its tune as well as any instrument I've owned. The tonal range is truly staggering while maintaining classic Fender playability.
