I love this bass because it can get any sound you want, as well as other sounds that just sound great... but are different.It's neck is fast and smooth, and access to the higher register is a breeze.Great bass, hefty price = worth it.
The Left-Handed American Deluxe Jazz Bass is a great bass! It comes with great features and the craftsmanship is terrifc! By using the mid and bass boost/cut knobs and the knob for switching pickups I can either get a great low bass sound or a great sound for slapping. Personally, I prefer having a low bass sound, but just switch to the bridge pickup and cut the mid EQ and you're ready for slapping! You can truly find your own sound on this bass by just playing around with all the knobs. This is my second bass (my first is a Epiphone Viola) and I have to say it was worth the money! This bass gets great sound whether you are playing rock, funk, blues, or even mexican music. The tone is great for all types of music. I love the quality sound I get when I use slides or harmonics and just the sound from it all together. It's a little heavy at first, but you get use to it. The fretboard is even friendly to players with small hands like mine, I can move around it pretty easy. Overall, it's an awesome bass with great quality all around; most likely the one you will use throughout your career. The features are great and as well as the look of it. Everyone is always complimenting the 3-tone sunburst finish and the sound. The only downside for me is that it doesn't come in a left-handed 5-string model because I would love to keep using this model when I decide to step up my playing in the years to come. The Left-Handed American Deluxe Jazz Bass is definately worth the investment and will keep you satisfied!
Mine is a 1999 and I believe the only difference is the upgraded preamp on the new models. The lutherie is flawless with great quality woods. People are always amazed by the sustain of this bass. I thought that the sound of those noiseless pick-ups was not very warm and replaced them by Fender Custom Shops. I think they sound much warmer, punchier and "crunchier". In other words, I think it is a fantastic bass if you replace the pick-ups. I recieve many compliments whenever I use it for a gig. Unless you can afford a real vintage or a custom shop, this is the only American Jazz Bass available for lefties anyway.
