      Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

      This bass is absolutely amazing. It has amazing tone and is definitely worth the price. The only problem I had with receiving it is the nut on the bass is broken. But I'm still giving 5 stars because it's such a good bass.

        I am so sold on Fender Jazz Basses after this experience. It felt good in the store and sounded good through their amp. But, once I got it home...well let's just say, I was blown away. Sounds even better in my practice nook.

            2 hours after receiving this, I was on the phone with MSF requesting a return label. The only thing I liked about it was it's looks & that it had the name Fender on it. MSF customer service was great & I reordered a Schecter C-4 in place of it & I love it, the sound, playability, feel, even the looks of it are night & day above the Fender. Once again hats off to MSF.com customer service. P.S. This was my very first return in the 25 years dealing with this online service!

              Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

              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 was my seventh bass guitar purchase from Musician's Friend and as always, the service was fast and easy. This Fender Jazz Bass rivals my Rickenbacker for quality and playability. Definitely a good decision to buy this bass guitar!

                  I love these. I wanted another one and I bought the Standard instead of the American Standard because im really into the pickups on Fender Standard Guitars, also, whats cooler than a white Fender Bass? Beyond that its 100% Fender Jazz Bass and that means the KING of Electric Basses, unparalled. I recommend this Bass to anyone who plays or plans to play bass - experienced or no..Some have said the Jazz bass is an expreienced players instrument - the long tapered neck, the offset waist, the weight, etc., can be intimidating to the begginner . I say, if you dont like the Jazz Bass, you dont like Bass guitars, you might as well start with the best and not begin any bad habbits.

                  Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

                  I've had one of these since 2008. It was my second and actually the last bass I've purchased. After having it for 4 years I think that it was time to give a review of my experience with it. Naturally when I first got it I thought it was awesome. Compared to my Peavey starter bass I got at a pawn shop there was no comparison. 4 years later thats still all I can really say about it. I'm actually a drummer but naturally when I wanted to play another instrument I chose bass which actually helped me quite a bit musically but after being around actual bassists, I can tell this thing aint all that. The tone is mediocre and goes away with time. It's hard to explain but it just doesn't feel as solid as some higher end basses. The bridge on it is complete trash. If you want to make this thing sound good, change the bridge and pick ups as soon as you buy. Overall seems like a good beginner bass or an average intermediate bass but its nothing to rave about. If you're a bassist and want something that will last, save up the extra dough and get an American made one.

                  Amazing Bass

                  By Jacob Scruggs

                  from Undisclosed

                  Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

                  This bass is exactly what Ive been looking for since I first was Interested in bass guitars. The High-Gloss fretboard was the big pulling factor for me getting this bass. The satin finish on the back of the neck makes it extremely easy to move up and down the neck for hours without getting sore. I honestly thought that the pickups would be weak, but they are actually about on par with an American jazz bass. Actually the only real differences that I can tell about the Quality, Parts, etc of this bass are the Bridges on both instruments, and the logo on the back of the headstock saying made in Mexico. If you were thinking of picking up an American special, save some money and buy this. Its great!
                  No Specia Fetures. It's a Jazz bass. It does what it is designed to do well.
                  Top notch finish on the body and excellent gloss on the fretboard.
                  I caught it when the Christmas sale was going on and, as someone else stated on the rosewood variant of these basses, it feels like you hit the Jackpot.
