No doubt about it, this is an amazing bass for any lefty. Now, sad but true, there aren't a lot of lefty basses out there, but nevertheless, you can't go wrong with a Fender Jazz bass. From its classic good looks to its ease of playing, the bass has incredible versatility. I run mine through an effects board and with the exception of heavy metal, I can get a tone and feel to match any musical genre. I have mine set up very low with no fret buzz and it has a great tonal palette. The only changes I've done to mine is to add Dunlop strap locks and swap out the pickguard to a Warmoth Black Pearl. Otherwise, it is pure stock. It stays in tune and is very well balanced. I have both fretted and fretless & love them both. Fender Rules!
The minute you hold this bass, you'll feel like your holding quality in ur hands. Very smooth neck, good action that can be changed, comes fully setup almost perfectly, depends from person to person. THE TONE - is to die for. Definately has the sweet classic fender tone. Will definately be your last buy if your looking for lush warm sweet tones. Not for Metal.
This sounds exactly how you would expect a high quality Fender J-Bass to sound. One of the most versatile basses around.You can dial in tones for punk, metal,reggae, jazz, blues, rock, and almost anything else you can think of.
great bass its got a great tone and really easy to play and a tone other stuff and it a great deal
Whether it�ۡ���s the Jazz Bass or its sibling, the Precision, for more than half a century the Fender electric bass has been the industry standard. No other bass guitar is so instantly recognized and widely known. The Jazz Bass, now celebrating its 50th anniversary, provides players with a little more versatility in their tone by means of its dual single-coil pickups and the ability to mix the signals via individual volume controls and a master tone control. The bridge pickup on a J-bass provides a bright tone which helps to punch the sound of the instrument through a group of instruments. This particular J-bass is, of course, for southpaws. Right handed players can find the traditional instrument elsewhere on this site.
