I purchased one of these basses several years ago and have gigged it out extensively with no problems precluding me from playing the gigs. It looks good on stage and plays well. Over the years it's held up well execept:About a year after I got this bass(still under warranty) I noticed a crack in the rosewood on the fret board. I took it to my local authorized Fender dealer who let the bass sit in a back room for 3 weeks until I went and picked it up. I wrote the CEO of Fender a letter about the bass and their 'fine customer care' and was pretty much blown off by Fender also. The bass still has a crack in the rosewood and plays fine, but I know it's there. I guess Fender is in the business of getting the maximum number of instruments out there with little or no customer case...
I purchased this bass two years ago. Overall its a good bass, it's had some neck and intonation problems and for or the price I've been disappointed with the quality of materials. As soon as I bought it I had to have the frets filed down and the pick-ups replaced. Like I said it's a good bass and the tone is great but for the price if I had to do it again I'd buy something else.
The guitar sounds amazing! I let a bass player with 35+ expearience play and compair it to his all original 1963 Fender P Bass. This guitar's tone blew him away along with the rest of the band. After switching back to his guitar, the drummer wanted him to play the Jazz bass instead indicating the sound was much clearer. The amp and cab was a 1970's acoustic 360. I will never part with this guitar.
This bass is the most versatile Fender I've ever played, and I've played many. It can get down and dirty, mean and low, and super funky. The neck is thin and quick and the look is super nice (the ash is beautiful and I snagged an Aged Cherryburst before they were discontinued). If you are a traditionalist like me when it comes to purchasing basses, but want to be able to have every sound, this is your bass. If you like Stingrays, but the lack of a smooth place to put your thumb drives you crazy (those darn pickup screws), you can get a historic bass that sounds as funky as a Stingray (and is probably even more versatile). The only reason I didn't give it all 10s is that Fender sometimes has quality issues these days on little details. I had to return two of these: the first had a poor cut around the neck joint with globs of lacquer, plus yellowing around the edge of the pickguard; the second one I got had a crooked jack screw and a warped case. I didn?t give up, and finally, when I got a third one that was virtually perfect, I was in heaven! This bass is a lifetime purchase so inspect it closely.
This bass is incredible. I play in two bands, an original hard rock/ alternitive band and a cover band that plays everything from Eagles and Journey to Blake Shelton, Gretchen Wilson to KC and the Sunshine Band, so I needed something versatile. The eq options on this bass are fantastic, I used to have a boss 7-band equalizer that I really don't need anymore. I can dial in any type of tone I want right on my bass. It plays great, great tone, cool look and you can't go wrong with an American Fender! Best bass I've ever played, I woudn't trade it for a thing!
this bass is amazing, the tone is awesome. this is the perfect bass.
I bought this bass as an investment/toy. Its amazing, with the feel of the original Fender jazz bass guitar, and ant tone you want. Fast neck that plays so smooth and easy. Treat your self to the best.
Are you kidding me? This bass has plenty of tone to go around. For you fingerstyle funkateers out there, this Jazz is sure to get some fingerlickin funk out of your fingertips. Are you slap happy? This Jazz has the slap tone of DOOM! And for you rockers out there, be prepared for this Jazz to rock you like a hurricane. Wankers need not apply.
