Slim “Modern C” Neck Profile This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a slim, modern “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), 9.5” fingerboard radius and narrow-tall frets.
Narrow-Tall Frets Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation.
HiMass™ Vintage Bridge Channel the early days of Fender in a thoroughly modern instrument thanks to the vintage-style HiMass bass bridge with single-groove saddles, offering an authentic vintage look with plenty of stability and sustain.
New Fluted Tuners Wider at the top than the bottom, the fluted shafts force the string windings downward and keep them tight, resulting in a sharper and consistent break angle over the nut, creating increased sustain and better tuning stability.
Posiflex™ Graphite Rods All American Professional bass necks incorporate Posiflex graphite rods to reinforce against movement that can occur with fluctuations the environment. Embedded beneath the fingerboard, they improve reliability on the road, in the studio or in your home.
