The American Ultra series marks a return to the basics with rosewood fingerboards in place of ebony and the removal of the dual-action spoke-wheel truss-rod.

Fender redesigned the 18V preamp for improved tonal possibilities, added a top-load HiMass bridge and a new battery compartment. A new modern D profile with rolled edges replaced the compound C-to-D shape from the Elites, retaining the 10-14'-inch radius fretboard; the neck heel joint becomes more tapered for easier access to the higher registers.

Those look pretty cool. 8) That's the first time I've ever seen the gold pick guard on a Jazz Bass. Usually those are on Precisions.

They already put a gold pickguard on a Jazz Bass in 2004.

Oh, I didn't know that. I must have missed that one.
