Great Bass for the Price!!

By Stiffbassist

May not be as versatile without active pickups, but who cares?! Usually once a bassist gets the sound he wants, he sticks with it. I got that sound as soon as I plugged this bass into my Eden/Ampeg stack. I absolutely love this bass!
I just bought the Mexican 5 string Jazz Bass and I'm thrilled with it. I had the tech at my local shop set it up, so the intonation is perfect and the action is as low as possible without any buzz. Gigged with it last week and it sounded fantastic. The pickups have a great warm tone the works real well for the Southern Rock that my current band plays.
I've been playing for about thirty five years now, and this is one of the best playing basses that I've had. String spacing is perfect! It's one of the few five strings that I feel really comfortable slapping. The neck is extremely fast and the tone is awsome.
Can not be beat for the price!!

By -T0aQk9H8

i bought this bass because i needed a reasonable 5 string that was well built.ive been playing 25 yrs and have always used fender.this is a mexican bass and i played several before finding one i liked.i have made a couple upgrades.first i put in emg active pick ups and a bad ass bridge.i also had the frets leveled because i play with really low action.this bass is a monster,easy to play,beautiful sound,and of course very solid.a great bass at a good price!

what is the big difference?

By joe butada

from Louisiana

I have an 04 with Samarium noisless upgrade. I kept it passive to try it out. After neck adjust and new flatwound strings this bass has been a pleasure for the last few years. My first Fender bass was back in the early 70 s. I played p basses, jazz, teles, and a new jag. American, Japanese, and now Mexican. I got lucky with this one. Sounds better than many i have played. This is a good constructed guitar and it is one of my favorites. I try others like Lakland and i always go back to Fender.

Just as good as the American

By funkflex

from Daytona Beach, Florida

See all my reviews

I've tried numerous bass guitars over my 10 years of bass playing. No matter how hard I try not to, I always come back to Fender. The MIM fenders are top notch in 2009. Right out of the box, all I had to do was adjust the action and truss Rod and I was good to go. I usually require EB's or Daddario strings. But the Fender stock strings sounded so good, I didn't even bother replacing them. This is the best bass for slapping too. The string spacing is just right and the vintage sound is killer. BUY THIS FENDER TODAY because I can guarantee you that this bass won't be available for long!!
