Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (36 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "the best fender j."
Sound: This bass is characterized by its tight response and punch. It is amazing. MOre punch than any rick i have ever come across. The neck is extremely fast and thin. Becareful, it will spoil you. Feature: IT is a j-bass. What can i say? THe vintage wound pickups are awesome. I replaced the c$#p bridge that fender gives you with a badass II. It is worth it. The bass has vibe. I would never part with it. Ease of Use: if your into funk and rock this is the bass for you. The thinnest neck i have ever played and the glossy bound finish lets your hand glide down the neck. Quality: Solidly built. I worry about the neck joint. I replaced the bridge, Other than that top notch. the finish is fantastic. The pot covers can come off but that happens wiht most fender basses. This baby could dish it out on the road. It has a tough finish so don't be afraid to get wild. Value: this is an expensive bass. But i never have to buy another one. It is worth it for me. Manufacturer Support: n/a The Wow Factor: natural finish with a black pickguard with the skunk stripes. YUM! Overall: A supped up j-bass. nuff said

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Sound, Great Build, Great Bass"
Sound: This Bass has the great 70's Era Jazz Bass sound. The 70's pickup spacing is awesome. The sound is very bright and crisp with just the bridge pickup and the tone cranked, and has a great growl with the neck pickup only, and when you crank them both you get a crisp bright sound with some growl. This bass has a very good sound. Feature: Simple yet effective controls. Vintage hardware is very good but not great; however it is part of the mojo of this bass. The Ash body is beautiful and light. The bound neck is very fast and easy to play. Ease of Use: This bass plays very well. It plays great right out of the box. Once I get it professionally set up I imagine it will play superbly. Quality: The construction of this bass is great. The neck joint is super tight with no gaps. The neck is straight and fretwork is very good with vintage style frets. The clear finish on this bass is also very good and makes the bass quite beautiful. The only thing needed was to tighten down some of the screws in the pickguard that were raised up a bit. Value: This bass is somewhat expensive for what it is. The Wow Factor: The bass looks good and you will get comments on it. Overall: This is a great bass and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
