  • Exactly what your promised

    As reviewed by John on 7/21/2011

    Fender has given us exactly what was promised with this precision sound in a jazz body. The dual P pickups bring a lot of punch, and there's plenty of high end for for j bass fans. It plays fast like a j bass should, and the action feels light and easy right out of the box, it kinda of surprised me how just how light mine is. I can find no problems with the build quality. From what I've read on other forums some folks kind of look down on a MIM instrument, but if you don't have a grand handy to spend this is an excellent option for the price, and it is a Fender. Again, you get exactly what fender promised and a nice price tag to go with it. I will pick up another true j bass in the future, but I can see having this blacktop for a long time to come.

  • AWESOME BASS

    As reviewed by big T on 9/5/2011

    i have had this bass for about 2 months now and it's awesome,it has a huge junk of metal for the bridge,it has sustain for days.all the frets are perfect ,paint is cool,and it stays in tune. i have the white chrome one it looks like the white sparkle addition of the steve harris blue sparkle bass . two pickups i can get all sorts of cool sounds.its well worth the money for a mim fender LL&R

  • Musical Wonder

    As reviewed by Frank Bello on 1/25/2013

    I play guitar, not usually bass. But I do my own recordings and have been getting along with a cheaper knock off bass. I decided, wisely, to upgrade. After reading an article in Premier Guitar about this Fender J Bass, I decided this is the one for me. I've had it for a few weeks now and I am quite pleased. Although my bass lines are not exactly Stanley Clark like, they are rather rudimentary, the tonality and quality of the sound is definitely noticeable in my newer recordings.
