    Fender Limited Edition American Elite Jazz Bass V Matching Headcap Maple Fingerboard Surf Pearl

    Absolutely beautiful, rare bass with matching painted headstock, surf pearl. This bass was purchased by me brand new for a temporary musical project, played by me for about a half an hour, then put back in it's brand new case and stored in a temp controlled smoke-free, pet-free studio...otherwise it's as new a you can get. Still has all of the tags intact, case candy, plastic film pickguard, tuning pegs, battery cover, and pickup films are all intact, stickers, and electronics guide intact.

    The only blemish I see at all was noticed only when I took the photos that are in this listing. There is a tiny dimple in the finish only that is extremely hard to see (and photograph). Nevertheless, I wanted to try and point it out, since I noticed it myself. I attempted to do this by adding an arrow pointing to it on one particular photo in this listing, so it's the only photo with an arrow on it. Again, it's hard to see unless the right kind of light hits it.

    When this model was readily available last year, it sold brand new for around $2000, so this is an excellent opportunity for the right person. Please let me know if you have any questions about it. Thanks for looking!

    Packed to the gills with Fender's latest revolutionary innovations, the American Elite Jazz Bass V is an active 5-string bass for the modern bassist who demands cutting-edge tone technology along with timeless style and fast, smooth playing feel. Its versatile sound easily matches any playing style—picked, plucked or slap-and-pop—while its standout looks remain authentically Fender, with a fresh twist.

    With the exclusive all-new fourth-generation Noiseless pickups, Fender has achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—vintage-style response with completely noise-free performance. These muscular pickups are fueled by a redesigned robust 18-volt preamp cranks up the power for even more signal quality for chest-thumping tone with more headroom and reduced noise. Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the new genuine bone nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. Posiflex™ graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting temperature- and humidity-induced warping. The HiMass™ Vintage bridge increases note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with colossal punch and boundless sustain while allowing either top-load or strings-thru-body stringing. In a vintage-inspired touch, the new truss rod adjustment wheel has been moved to the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments a snap.

    This bass is packed with Fender’s immortal aesthetics—from the ergonomic contours to the black chrome headstock logo, large pearloid fret markers and new color this instrument will pin the audience’s ears back with it’s gigantic tone and slick style. The American Elite Jazz Bass V is a bold new bass for adventurous bassists who need a tonal multi-tool that refuses to compromise on any front. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with body-hugging contours to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument and TSA locks.

    I had an elite p that was my main recording axe for years. Someone is gonna make out nicely on this one, I’m sure.
    If I wasn’t reducing. I’d be the buyer. It looks great.
