    This bass is a beast! It's basically a hot rodded jazz with American electronics and pickups. A 5 string jazz with lots of versatility. The sound youwant is in this bass. Lots of power! This bass sounds like a bass. When the back picup is favored or soloed it growls like an animal. Both pups on you get a well balanced mix of thump and growl. Neck pup soloed you get old school thud and boom. This bass is worth every penny. It's BIG and a tad Heavy but thats what gives it it's BIG and Heavy sound. Very well built, excellent craftsmanship. Smooth neck, and no sharp frets. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and put on a set of strap locks. Changed the strings to DR SunBeams and did my own set-up on it. Plays awesome! I LOVE IT!

  • Good Bass, Bit heavy

    As reviewed by JazzBassGuitarist35 on 11/15/2006

    This bass is a really nice upgrade from a starter like the Squier P Bass i started with. I really like the feel of this bass, but the top strap knob has a tendency to loosen itself, requireing constant tightening, but other than that this bass is flawless. Everytime i pull it out of its soft case, it is always nearly perfectly in tune. Fender really steped up this time. Bass is definatly worth the money.

  • Why All Good Bases Sound Like Fenders

    As reviewed by Les Burton on 1/30/2008

    A GREAT Bass. The only downside is the weight. The best thing about the bass is the range of sounds you can get just by adjusting a nob a hair. With this thing you can set your amp knobs to one setting and change your sound to fit ANY song just by adjusting the knobs on your bass. The only downside is the weight, and the fretboard is rather wide for a jazz. Just get a big strap and stop being such a baby. Buy it.
