The Modern Player Jazz Bass returns in a five-string model with a new look and even greater tonal versatility from its powerful pair of humbucking pickups. A satin finish imparts a smoothly elegant air, and a convenient new four-position rotary pickup selector switch delivers a potent quartet of pickup combinations (full middle and bridge pickups, full middle pickup and bridge pickup outer coil, full bridge pickup and middle pickup outer coil, outer coil of both pickups).
Other features include an alder body, maple neck with "C"-shaped profile, 9.5"-radius maple (Black model) or rosewood (Olympic White and Two-color Sunburst models) fingerboard with 20 jumbo frets and easy-access truss rod adjustment wheel, redesigned Modern Player Jazz Bass humbucking pickups, single-ply black pickguard and vintage-style black plastic control knobs (two volume and master tone), and five-saddle Fender Hi-Mass bridge. Available in Satin Black, Satin Olympic White and 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

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 ..
Sound really "jazz bass"!
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.
