      Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Jazz Bass:

      Having recently transitioned from a life of being a drummer since my teens (many decades ago), I was learning on a Squire Affinity Jazz Base for while, but I had seen this model in my local GC store and had spent since time working with it in the shop. A recent price reduction was all it took to pull the trigger. It's hard to categorize, but the feel of this FSR Jazz Bass was so much different. As a car nut, I'd say it was like going from a Toyota Corolla to a Mercedes or BMW, if that relates. Now, there's noting really wrong with the Squire - it plays well, makes a good tone, and is an all around good instrument. But the FSR's neck makes this thing much faster and so easy to play that I don't want to put it down. The tone and sustain are significantly better than the Squire, and I'd have no problems at all with holding down the bottom with the FSR in a live or recorded session.

        Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Jazz Bass:

        I've played bass for over 30 years and have had a variety. I wanted the Ash jazz bass and read hundreds of opinions regarding where it was made at. I was expecting to pay$1800-$2000 dollars for a good bass. This bass was 1/3 of the price, so I took a gamble. The quality is as good as any American made. The Ash body can only be told it is not 1 piece by looking at the very bottom. It is booked marked better than any electric I've owned to date. The frets are even along the edge with no high spots or sharp edges. The volume and tone controls are even without "flat" spots. The pickups are not bad and I will replace them with some Dimarzios but for the average player they will work just fine. Say what you want about the Mexican basses but if they are all like this one they are a great bargain. I did have to set the truss rod, action height and intonation but that is something I prefer to do myself. It took less than an hour. Shipping was fast but I was a little surprised that it wasn't wrapped in bubble wrap or something. Fortunately, it wasn't damaged. I think it's a good bass that looks and plays as great if not better than my other Fenders, Rickenbacher or Schecter.

          Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Jazz Bass:

          This was the replacement for the Ibanez SR500 that died in less than two months after purchase.

          I was drawn to this first by the body and natural finish and then the pure tone of it.

          So far this is the best sounding bass I own and my fellow band mates have asked me to only play this one in the studio.

          I also have an Ibanez ATK300FL and a Sterling Sub, both which have their own unique tones that I love for various songs.

          When the SR500 Ibanez was diagnosed as defective, the staff at my local GC recommended that I check this one out though it's MIM.

          After plugging it in and playing for less than five minutes, it came home with me.

          Highly Recommend!!!

            Great products. I was a little concerned with buying a mexican jazz bass, but have had good experiences in the past with Mexican Strats. This was no exception. Solid quality and great sound with nice playability once I set the bass up correctly.

            Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Jazz Bass:

            I use this bass from the comfort of my home so I can't speak for performers when I say that this is one of THE best basses I have ever played. The neck allows your hand to glide like butter and the overall play-ability is fantastic. The only problem I've had with it is the bridge saddles move around when changing the strings so it needs re-adjustment, but a Allen wrench fixes that problem just fine. Overall the bass is a solid 8.5/10 and I highly recommend buying one if you're looking for a mid-level bass.

            Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Jazz Bass:

            Got this beauty at the beginning of the year.Used a GC customer appreciation coupon and got the steal of the century.After trying even American Jazz basses,when I picked this one up to try it,itwas as good if not better.I don't know if its the Ash body or what,but the sound was awesome;even the deep end sounded as good as my American P-bass.It arrived perfectly set up at the GC in Queens,N Y,whose staff by the way is excellent,and has been my 1-A bass since.I just noticed that the price has since gone up,but it is still a great deal for an intermediate or better player.

            My Dream Bass

            By MARK

            from Houston , Texas

            Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Jazz Bass:

            I bought this Jazz bass last December 2014 and its easy to play and sounds great plus worth every penny I paid. This bass is everything I've expected and more in a Fender bass, the feel to the tone and other aspects. I made the mistake of buying cheap basses my entire life and wanted a Fender Jazz bass for a very long time and I'm very satisfied with this bass. The sound is exceptional and a beautiful guitar. The employees where super friendly and helped me with every question I asked. I would recommend the Guitar Center in Pasadena, Texas and this particular Bass to professional bass players that live in and around Houston area. The courtesy I received from the nice people at Guitar Center was exceptional and professional. This particular store is the best Guitar store I've ever seen not just for guitars but every aspect of music. I feel like I'm in Heaven when in this store. Thanks much to the employees and manager.

            An Excellent Bass!

            By Daniel

            from Centerville, Indiana

            Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Jazz Bass:

            I've had this bass for a week now, and I've hardly been able to put it down! The FSR does not disappoint in any field. I absolutely love the natural finish with tortoiseshell pickguard. The tuning keys stay in tune flawlessly; I haven't had to re-tune since I got it, and it still has stock strings! I dropped the action to my liking and it feels extraordinary to play. The neck is one of the easiest, if not the easiest to play on I've ever experienced. The mid range growl is gorgeous, but the low end is heavier than any other jazz I've ever picked up. The volume and tone knobs are very accurate, and I can get an amazing range of sound. Fingerstyle sounds great on this bass, but it definitely feels right to slap on. This is a great bass for a great price and I definitely recommend it.
