The Fender Jazz Bass 24 boasts a flat black finish and combines active electronics and a full 2-octave neck to help you reach new sonic territory. The twin Seymour Duncan Basslines J Bass pickups deliver everything from a whisper to a roar. Other special features include Hipshot-licensed tuning machines, active electronics with a "slap" mid-scoop switch, a push/pull volume knob to bypass the active circuitry, and a high-mass, top-loading bridge. It is a bass that sounds and feels as good as it looks.

I loved the look of this bass!
Although I was leery of Korean made gear, I found it to be well made, balanced and easy to care for.
I went on line and found how to do my own set ups (easy and I saved a fortune!)as well as what all the controls did. It didn't come with ANY |case candy"! The truss rod is 4.5 M.M.!!! NOT! 4 M.M.! You'll burr the nut....
I love the strings through bridge; you will need extra long strings. The Fender Long scale Flats work fine.
The flat black finish was really what caught my eye, however after a few months it started to wear away, especially around the P.U.s where I rest my thumb. It also started wearing around the controls. So, I put some dance-floor tape and it seems to work for now. A pickguard would be better....
I use flat-wounds but still get that high-end "ring" and "clicky" fret noise. I researched that Carol Kaye (Google her name! Her story is amazing!)used this. So, I use a 3.5" X 4.5" piece of felt rolled up and tucked under the bridge. Cheap (.49 cents)and effective, available at any bargain or craft store.
You'll find that Jamerson did the same thing with a piece of sponge. I found a sponge deadened it too much.
I think I paid about six hundred. (Canadian) with a Squier trade in. I think if I had to replace it I would need to pay at least thirteen hundred. (CDN) for an American Standard Jazz.

This is definitely the best bass I have ever played. I have been turned off to the Fender Jazz Bass since I started playing bass because it just didn't have the feel i was looking for. I got this bass and am never going back. This bass has the best sound for fingering and just about the best slap. I recommend this for any upgrade; beginner or professional.
Great bass...looks good...sounds awesome...I love the Seymour Duncan pups..
This bass is great; at first I heard people say not to buy Fender other than American...I say buy this one and you won't be sorry. I may have other basses but this one is for life. Affordable, excellent playability...and the sound...fantastic.
I understand that what you see is what you get, and that this is quite inexpensive compared to full price, but don't expect it to play amazingly right out of the box. When I got mine, It had no setup. The action was horrible and the strings were touching every fret. It was beyond awful. Brought it to Daddy's Junky Music and they did a deluxe setup on it for about 120 which included a fret level and everything ... It is the best Bass I have ever played. Just be careful. If you buy straplocks, Schaller uses smaller screws so you will need to figure something out
