    Play this bass at my church on Sunday's. It has more tone options than the p-bass I normally play. It sounds great live through the sound system.

      Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

      I bought this bass (in Arctic White) one week before heading to LA with my band to record our second EP. We stayed in LA for a week and worked with an amazing producer. I brought 3 bass guitars to the studio and ended up just using this one the entire week. It can play anything; that's why it's so wonderful. You can get so many tones out of it. My band is a pop/rock/funk group and this guitar had no problem keeping up.

        Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

        I bought mine a few years ago. It was slightly used, in gloss black and in excellent, like new, condition. I also bought a hard shell case fo it. I replaced the pickups with Bartelini Jazz Bass replacement pickups. Mine are solid black with no poles showing. I also replaced the bridge with a Gotoh. The bridge I have is real smooth with a flat surface to be able to rest my hand on it if I want to mute the strings while using a guitar pick. I also had a custom white pearloid pickguard made for it, exact shape and screw holes. I have flat wound strings on it as well. I love the feel of flat wounds on a bass.
        I'm actually a guitar player and wanted to be able to play straight bass, pretty much the same way a Hofner would be used. I really like this bass; the workmanship, finish, tone and playability. I wanted to put together a bass guitar to suit my needs and this one does it perfectly. I beleive my replacement pickups are quieter than the stock pickups in the MIM basses, but I don't think the stock pickups were bad.
        I don't think you can go wrong with a Fender MIM bass. Even with the upgrades, it costs much less than an American standard and it is a very fine instrument. I could have given it a 5 but I took off one point just because I felt the need to to do some upgrades. If givin the choice, I would replace the bridge on an American Standard as well. Just my personal opinion. Buy one, for the money I don't think you can find a better bass.

        Girth. Punch. Bass. Versatile.

        By 

        from Oakland CA

        Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

        A neck pickup to provide the warmth, and a bridge pickup to provide the punch. Together, they formulate the jazz bass by fender. It's well-rounded, and capable to expand its tones it offers to bassists of all sorts. Needing girth? Roll up the neck pickup! Feeling a little punchy? You got the bridge pickup to help you with that. It's great for fingers and pick players. It's great for beginners, and respected by veterans. Pick up a jazz, and start things right. Pick up a jazz and shape things right. Cheers.

        Good solid bass

        By 

        from Portland , Oregon

        Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

        Bought the Fender Standard Jazz bass as a second bass. Found the bass to be well put together with perfect paint work. The pickups that came on the bass sounded good but I wanted a more vintage sound so replaced them . I also own a Fender American Standard which I like but I find myself playing this cheaper standard Jazz bass most of the time. The neck is thinner than the American Standard and feels more vintage and easier to approach. Electronics seem good.

        Excellent for shows.

        By 

        from Indianapolis, IN

        Comments about Fender Standard Jazz Bass Guitar:

        This is an excellent choice for a working bassist. Great tonal versatility just from using the knobs. Smooth action out of the box. I put an aged pearl pickguard, and bridge/pickup covers on, and it looks like it cost 4 times as much what I paid for it. I wouldn't recommend it for recording, hence 4 stars, but it is an altogether good instrument.
