"Worth every penny....."
Sound: This bass is a tone monster !! It has a deep bass tone but also good highs & a great mid range.After to you learn the controls it's very easy to dial in the sound your looking for.Lots of volume from this monster. I play through a SWR Working Pro 15 & between the amp & the guitar I can cover a wide range of musical styles & sounds.The pickups & electronics are very quite & very responsive. I bought my used(a 1999 model)& it had some old strings on it & once I replaced them with some DR Lo-Riders it really came alive. Feature: As I said I bought this bass used & got a hard-shell case with mine,but hey at least they include a gig bag. It's no-sense bass every feature has a purpose. All materials & parts are very good quality.My bass is almost 10 yrs old & everything still works great & the bass is very solid. I the option of a maple finger board would be cool.I think it would look really cool since the head stock is maple. Ease of Use: With some experimenting you can make this bass sound like a P bass or get that nasty J bass growl or a combo of both,a deep dark heavy metal bass,a bright pop style bass or a funk machine. If you're expecting that slim J bass neck your in for a surprise,it has a pretty wide neck but not uncomfortable.A person with smaller hands may have some fatigue after a long gig & it's pretty heavy.It's a "Real Man's " bass.(LOL) I have 2 other 5 strings (Dean fretless & an older Peavey)that have slimmer necks,but not as wide as my Washburn 6 string.Don't let that be something that keeps you from buying this bass. Quality: OK some people are guitar snobs & think that anything but a USA Fender is junk,they're wrong.This MIM is a very well crafted instrument & should last you a lifetime with proper care & handling.Mine(a 99') has spent a good portion of it's life in a case(until now,it's out gigging every weekend)& the finish still looks brand new.It's finish is flawless,very deep & very shiny.The neck is smooth as silk. Stay in tune very well.I'm not sure about the factory strings that are on it,I'm sure they're quality Fender strings,but a set of DR Lo-Riders Value: I bought my used from a friend for a great price but I believe this bass is well worth the cost of a new one.It's a great way to own a Fender Jazz bass for half the cost of a USA model. The US made electronics are a hidden feature that only add to the value. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to use it but it a FENDER so it's gotta be good. The Wow Factor: I have the Candy Apple Red & it's dead sexy !! I get compliments on the look & the sound of the bass from fellow musicians & people in the crowd.This is my 6th bass in my "Bass Arsenal" & quickly becoming a favorite. If you're looking to make the leap to a 5 string or just looking for a good quality bass to gig with that won't break the bank this may be your bass. Overall: I wasn't really looking to by another bass when my friend showed this one to me.But after seeing it & playing it I think I would have tried to go get one if this one hadn't been for sale. I play in a country,rock,blues,Cajun & Tex-Mex band so having a wide vary of sounds at my finger tips is a great benefit to me. We play around 100 gigs a year,so I use my equipment it's not just to hang it on the wall & look at it.I'm sure this bass will be a warrior. PROS: awesome sound,wide variety of tones,great color,finish & good hardware,lots of boom for your buck CONS: pretty heavy & the neck is just a little wide(but not that bad)
Style of Music: country,rock,blues,oldies,Cajun,Tex-Mex

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome instrument for the price"
Overall: I just bought this bass recently taking a shot in the dark and boy I couldn't be happier with it, plays fantastic, I got the sunburst finish, the picture they have on here is wrong go on fender and you will see that it has red in between the wood color and the black edges. Don't assume this thing has a smooth classic tone, it can if you want but I play alot of metal and funk and such and this thing sounds 10 times more aggressive then my Ibanez SR-506 ever has the output this thing has is absolutely ridiculous, I keep the volume bout 3/4 up because if you turn this thing up max it overdrives the amp this thing will do anything you want and yea I don't know the tone has got to be the most agresssive I have ever had the pleasure to play on . I am planning to put some differnt strings on though, but I am a stainless fan so if u like nicklewound you might like the fender strings the action is pretty good, I tweaked mine a bit I like lower action. the finish is deep and just gorgeous , every one who sees compliments me on the look of it, I am really loving it so far. Somthing they don't mention is that it has actually gotoh brand tuners very very fine tuning . sooo but it u will not be dissapointed
Style of Music: Mostly metal, but I enjoy playin funk, classic rock,and some other styles
