    My jazz band recently got a grant from Fender, so I'm looking for people's opinions on how different fender products work in a jazz band. A wide range of prices would be nice, as the final results will have a lot to do with what the band's board of directors decide on, and what Fender is actually willing to give us.

    Jazz can be played on any bass so I’m not sure what you're asking for?

    Aerodyne kills everything made by Fender. If not, an MIM standard Jazz would work really well. The American Deluxe Jazz is been a killer bass for jazz.

    Not sure how much of a grant you're talking about You can use any bass, though the JB is a good choice (a P can get those nice mids as well). My son played in a jazz band with my 1999 P Lyte Precision (which has both Jazz and P pickups) and it was great. You might want to consider a JB just for the sleeker, faster neck, but then again that depends on your playing style. BTW, if you're looking to go fretless, those standard Fender fretless JBs are great tone-wise (even rivaling the more pricey Jaco).
