Comments about Fender Custom Shop J-Bass:

This beautiful instrument is in essence, You can achieve almost any sound you want from the single coil. The neck is also the fastest I have ever played. The one downside to this guitar is that the pickups tend to show a lot of your mistakes, so you had better be a good player if your playing one of these. The neck is one of the thinnest around, making it easier to shred. nothing else comes close to this bass in the variety of tones it can produce. If you play mainly in the bedroom or at smaller shows, this bass may not justify its price as a lower priced RG will offer the same essential features at a lower price. However, if this guitar would see a lot of time in recording, it will really pay for itself in the variety and quality of tones it can produce, as well as the playability of high end fenders,The sound from this bass is probably one of the greatest things on earth, but its not cheep. I have played with one a couple time wishing I could get one, but its a goal for the future. The sound is rich and warm, and the with the locking nut, you can go crazy on the wammy bar and still be in tune.There is no uncomfortable position on this bass , No pickup gets in the way of your picking hand, the locking nuts on the headstock do not interfere with you left hand, and the trem cavity is dug out so you can pick the guitar up by the whammy bar, and it will keep bending.This bass is the best bass I've ever had the pleaseure of owning and has brought the fun of playing back to me.
