Fender Unveils Limited Edition American Professional Jazz Bass

Fender 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Jazz Bass FMT

After introducing the American Professional line in December, Fender has unveiled the Limited Edition Exotic Collection. The series includes the 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Jazz Bass FMT, which combines the features of the Professional model with a figured maple top.

The bass is built with an alder body, quartersawn maple neck, and rosewood fretboard. The neck has a slim “Modern C” shape, while the fretboard is fitted with narrow-tall frets. Its pickups include a pair of Fender’s new V-Mod single coils. Other features include nickel-plated brass saddles, a Limited Edition neck plate, and a hardshell case.
