They all share what Fender calls an A-string "stealth" string retainer on the headstock and a heavy vintage bridge. The Jazz Bass V model has the retainer on the low B string. You also get a tinted neck bolted on using a five-bolt plate with Posiflex graphite neck support rods and a contoured heel for easier access to upper frets.
The neck has rolled fingerboard edges, a genuine bone nut, and black pearl or white pearloid fretboard inlays. There are dot inlays on the Precision model (pictured) and the two Jazz models have the classic-looking neck binding and block inlays. In addition, the Jazz Bass V model has a compound radius fingerboard and asymmetrical neck profile for fast action and smooth playability all the way up the neck.
All basses finish with a very accessible battery compartment via flathead screws for changing easily using a coin or pick. MSRP prices are: Jazz Bass at $2,099.99; Jazz Bass V is $2,199.99; and the Precision Bass sells for $1,999.99. For more information, visit www.fender.com.
