I bought this bass a few years back and it has been great! Not only does this bass have the signature Jaco Pastorius sound, it also holds multiple other sounds just by twisting a few knobs! Not only is this bass very versitile, but fender got everything else right on this bass to. It stays in tune, it has ajustable action, it has a very fast neck, and this bass is affordable (which is always a plus)! So if you are looking for a bass that is right up there at the pro level, extremely versitile, great quality, and affordable, then buy the fender jazz bass.

The jazz bass is classic, the MIM Fenders are, well, not so classic. It is worth the extra money for the Made in America series. Most of the MIM have a poor set-up with cheap electronics. Electonics are usually noisy. If it is all you can afford, get it to play, but you will want something nicer later. Hey, it beats all the Squier stuff hands down, though.

great bass, may need to be set up a bit

By 4dapunx

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

If there is anything i can say about this bass is that is has wonderful sound. the pickups are great, and the neck is even better. this bass may need to be set up a little before you use it though (tightening of screws, changing strings, etc.)but other than that the bass itself is great. a little pricy, but a good bass

Very good bass.

By Chris

from Dover, NJ

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

I bought my Fender Jazz two years ago and it still sounds great. The pickups hum a little bit, but that's the only problem I have with it. It has a very slim and quick neck and the tone controls are superb. The bass stays in tune very well through gigging and practice. Sounds great with slap and pop as well.

I own it

By bassmasta101

from Cedar Rapids, IA

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

this bass is great for people who don't have a lot of money to throw around and need a great bass for the price, i love the way it sounds for slapping-its fun to play, great for rock and alternative, its versatile, and it looks good too completely worth the money, sounds a ton better than anything for that price

The best I own!

By MrBass77

from Bowmanstown, PA

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

I just bought the Fender Standard jazz bass. I wanted one cause I've heard great things about the Fender name, and so far I had owned a Warwick Corvette, a Traben torrent (discontinued), a Cort Curbow, a Peavey Grind, a Squier P-bass, and a Epiphone Thunderbird. This bass blew them all away! The sound is almost perfect for my slapping, but hey, I can't complain. It's a beast on tapping and finger pluck styles, but slapping is by far the best sound I've been able to create with my equipment. There's only two problems with it. For one thing, 20 frets is a bother. I normally have 24+ and now that I don't have those frets, I realize how much I needed them. Secondly, the neck needs adjusting, but that's my own fault for not checking all the frets. All in all, solid bass! I'll always keep Fender in mind!

By wolfman

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

This was the first bass i bought. i have had it for about three-and-a-half months now. it sounds good, i dont have a good amp so it mght sound better than i think. but it handles nicely looks nice and has that level of fender quality you would expect. i recommend this bass over a cheaper squire.

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

Alright this was the third bass I added to me arsenal of bass guitars, and it'll be my last for a long time. This bass has very good quality, and sound. I got this as a gift this year and have had it for less than a month and I play it all the time. But before I got it already had the bridge swapped out with the Leo Quann bridge that everyone else talks about getting, and two Basslines Vintage Jazz Bass Pickups, and as an added bonus the neck version is reverse wound, reverse polarity for hum-canceling when played as part of a set. so there's that too. Of course this bass probably isn't as a good as an american jazz bass, but it's a lot cheaper to custom and whatnot. I highly recommend this bass for anyone.

CAN NOT BEAT THIS BASS

By camtheguitarman

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

It looks great, sounds great, and plays great. This bass isn't for beginners, it's the real deal. If you have any questions about this bass, just think the best bass you can think of.

Jazz Bass

By Pope

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

First I would recommend this bass to any beginner or amateur player. I've been playing this bass for about 5 months now. It gives a nice smooth Jazz sound out of the single coil pick ups. The two narrow single coils give plenty of room for slap bass or finger picking, which I haven't been able to find on other basses. I've knocked it around alittle bit and have had no problems with it. It has nice fret action, raising the strings up alittle gets rid of any buzzing from hitting the two single coils. Overall this bass is well worth the money, this is definatley a bass you can grow on.

Jazzy is snazzy...

By 40Days_Bass

from Lexington Michigan

Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass:

This bass is so cool. I honestly prefer the jazz style pickups to the P bass pickups, since I just feel more comfortable with them. My group is pretty driven by the Alter Bridge style, and Brian Marshall also uses Fenders, so I picked one up at a very good price and this thing rocks. If you don't have at least one, there is something wrong with you.
