This is a great bass I love it...it gives me the sound I like and it's good for slappin and poppin, tappin, for solid bass lines and it's my favorite bass. This bass is good for all types of music, rock, jazz, funk, alternative, it's an excellent bass, I would say it's better than the precision.
After playing all different models for so many years, I am happy to report I am very satisfied with this bass. Killer classic looks, feel and sound are all there. S1 switch is a must. Put the silver case away for investment, and get a standard case for gigs.
Awesome guitar! Great Sound! Awesome feel! But it buzzes and clicks when I touch any metal part of it.. Sounds like a Ground problem. Ordered a new one and the same problem. Had it checked out and tech said they both had no ground wires!! Also, both guitar cases have NAILS driven through from outside to hold the foam housing that holds guitar in place! Tacky!
I am a Fender J-Bass fanatic. So when I saw this 60th anniversary model, it was a no brainer for me. The silver case is very cool. The sunburst finish is deeper with a vintage look. The construction is good. The pickups have a little more growl than the stock MIA pickups, but they don't sound quite as good as the Fender Custom Shop 60's. You even get a pretty little logo with a gemstone in the headstock. This is one bass I will hold on to. I gave an 8 on quality due to a loose volume knob, but it only took five seconds and a flathead screwdriver to fix it. Overall, it's a great bass, and one that could very well be a collectors item some day.
I've played a lot of nice basses and this one is better than most and as good as the best. On top of that it's Fender. The range of sound from it is incredible. If you know what sound you're looking for you can get it from this bass. It's beautiful to look at and a real pleasure to play. If you appreciate excellent quality then this bass is the one for you. The Fender American Jazz Bass is what many boutique basses are trying to emulate. There are a lot of other excellent basses that you can buy but they are not Fender. Admittedly I am a big Fender fan for over forty years. I appreciate the history and yes, mystique of the American Fender Jazz Bass. This special edition commemorating the 60th anniversary just makes it extra special.
This bass is a great buy. You can get so many sounds with it, and you really can't beat the Fender Jazz Bass name. I can set it to where I get a very slap sound for Funk, or Jazz, or get the low tone I need for a Rock, Alternative genre. It's got a fast neck and even the stock strings (I normally use Ernie Ball Super Slinky's) sound great and play fast. The price is a little up there, but worth every penny.
This is my second American made Jazz Bass purchased from MF. No complaints. This bass is a great instrument to have for any bass addicted gearhead(love of new instruments). Even though I purchased an Am. Fender Jazz bass in 05', this one struck me with the color, looks, playability, and 62 re-issue pick-ups-which have a great classic rock sound. If you are thinking of parting with some gear; highly recommend this bass. It really fits my hobby of a part-time musician in a Classic/Southern Rock band. Always a MF Customer!
I just got this bass a few days ago,and I am very impressed. I Moved up from a standard fender jazz and obviously this bass is in a completely different league. But none the less, the tone on this instrument is increadable with a nice fat sound, and the S-1 switch provides basically a whole new instrument for all your tonal desires. This bass is Fender at its best, well best sinse the old days
Great sound and best bass I've owned, but it had a terrible buzz sound. Someone suggested it was the single coil pickup sound, another thought it was the ground. Took it to a fender shop and they diagnosed it a couple minutes. NO GROUND WIRE. They fixed it in 1 hour and now I enjoy bass even more. I read another person had same problem.
