I have played the bass guitar for over 35 years, and have owned 26 bass guitars over this time! No kidding whatsoever. I have owned some of the best basses availalbe during this time. I can say without a doubt that the 2013 Fender Standard Jazz is right up there with the Music Man Stingray (MIA), as well as 2 American Fender Jazz Basses I have owned since 1977.
What got my attention was when a good friend who is a professional bass player did a switch on me. He took the neck off of one of his MIA Fender Jazz and put it on the body of a new MIM Fender Jazz. He also took the body of the MIM Jazz and placed it on the MIA body. I wass amazed with the little if any difference between the 2 hybrid (lol) Fender basses. He then put the necks with their original body and had me to play each of them for about 20 minutes each. I honestly could not tell very little if any difference. My friend was absolutely correct when he told me that I was crazy to pay twice the price for a MIA Jazz, when I could buy the MIM Jazz and be completely satisfied with it. I would to see some of you out there try this if you can get the opportunity. You will be amazed with the quality of this bass!

This is the 2nd Fender Standard Jazz Bass MIM that I've purchased. My first was great right out of the box. This one had some bad issues with fret buzz but since I was going to upgrade the electronics etc... I didn't return it to MF. The standard pickups that come with bass are ok, but I like a little more punch so I upgraded to Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders. The bridge is ok also, but again I like more sustain so I upgraded to a Fender high mass bridge. The fret buzz was being caused by a bad filing on the nut. Filed way to deep. I replaced the nut, filed it correctly and all the buzz is gone. A 15.00 fix and not having to go through the return process. The body and neck are great and just a beautiful bass with great feel. I also replaced the strings with my favorites. Got a great deal on this bass with 20% off so I didn't go wrong. One thing I would suggest is if your card that comes with the bass doesn't have the tune/test and inspector portion blocks initialed, watch out as mine wasn't; and it slipped thru. I purchased the white and it is so cool!!! I gave this bass a 3 only because of the fret buzz. But other than that a great instrument.

    Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

    As I stated when I titled this review, this bass is the best value on the market. I played guitar for several years before I started playing bass earlier this year, and I am really enjoying the instrument so much more than I expected. In that time, I played an Epiphone Viola bass and a Hofner Ignition bass before purchasing my Fender Jazz bass. To put it simply it is so much easier to play than either of the others than I've owned, produces a greater variety of tones, and is so much more comfortable to play. I've grown so much as a musician since I started playing this one. I'm even playing in a worship band at church! Practicing with it is a pleasure, and I feel so much more secure performing with it that the number of mistakes that I make has diminished greatly. I think that's the key to the value of the bass right there: you feel so much more secure with it that it actually improves your playing (which is NOT to say that you'll just pick the ax up and be able to play. You still have hours of practicing that you have to do to become proficient!).

        Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

        (Sunburst) I mostly use it in my room and sometimes jamming with friends. So far I'm loving the feel on it, its super comfortable. I can get a lot of different tones from it and had tried many of the different bass options at Guitar Center and the Jazz Bass just felt the best. I love that i can get those high lead bass lines or nice warm and chunky lows.

          Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

          I have six basses, including four Fender basses - a U.S. Precision, an Aerodyne, a Musicmaster (also U.S.) and this Jazz (made in Mexico). This Jazz is BY FAR the best, smoothest playing bass I have ever played. I have flat-wound strings and I have played it through various amps - Fender, Ampeg, Acoustic and Peavey - an it always comes through. I have played the bass on five CDs without a hitch. It practically plays itself. It has a relatively low price point but outperforms basses costing four times as much. I play everything from classic rock to country to contemporary Christian to bluegrass. The tone can be changed from smooth and soft to very trebly and bold. I highly recommend the Jazz to anyone who wants a great bass at a fair price.

            Are you kidding me? Right out of the box, this bass was well set up and an absolute tone monster without the need for active electronics and the accompanying batteries. This bass is an absolute joy to play and I feel like it kicked up my playing a notch or two. I have the candy apple red version with the maple neck and have had people say it's "sexy". Bottom line, I love it!

                Love my jazz bass! Second one that I have owned. As always had to set up to my taste. Great tone, great looks and great feel. Not sure what makes jazz basses feel so comfortable, but they seem to wear in quickly and only sound better with age. No disappointments here. Highly recommend as a keeper and a life long instrument. Enjoy!!

                  Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

                  I have owned some very fine basses in the past, Rickenbacker 4001, Martin Acoustic, Fenders and this little Standard Jazz Bass is right up there at the top. My Rick was a 1974 and it was flawless, I still have my Martin. This Jazz Bass has a great neck and the pick-ups make this puppy growl. I put the Fender Black Nylon Tape Wound med gauge strings on it and kicked up the sound and action a notch-or-two. I run it through an Ampeg bass head with a 2X10 and 1X15 stack. I can get the ultra-clean tone as well as an OD sound. I use a BBE and a bass compressor, but very moderately. Don't let the price fool you. I have directly compared this to a MIA JB and the ONLY way that you could tell the difference is if you read the label on the back of the head-stock. Save a boat load of cash and buy a Mongo Bass amp with the $$ that you save. I did.

                      I have owned Fender basses in the past, including a 1965 P-bass and a 1977 J-bass, but my new Jazz Bass standard is my favorite. The finish is perfect, the neck is nice and the pickups sound like a good J-bass should sound.
                      Only complaint was that when I first got it, I had to remove the control knob plate to release pressure on the pickup lead wire. It was being pinched and would not allow me to adjust the height of my bridge pickup. Once I untrapped the wire, everything was perfect.

                        Just picked up one of these to do the ocassional bass gig, as I am primarily a Jazz Guitarist. I am thrilled with the quality of the construction and the sound. I used to work in a Fender dealership years ago, and they have made great strides with the MIM basses the past few years. Not fully MIA quality, but close enough that it suits my needs perfectly, and this truly feels like a professional level instrument.
