Overall: I cant speak enough about this bass. The balance of the body, the tone shaping on the 4 band EQ. The stock flowing action that allows me to move seamlessly across the fretboard. The sleek design. I am SO glad I purchased this bass. It can do absolutely anything from being behind the mix for an R&B track or right in front with some added mids and highs for a nice rock stone or Marcus Miller slap tone. EVERY bass player should have at least one Fender Jazz in their arsenal.

Overall: I happen to own a Ken Smith, a Musicman, and they are great basses, when my Minister of Music heard this Jazz Bass it stood out immediately. Everyone talks about the deep fatness of the sound, and it's beauty. For me, it's playability is second to one. I will be getting a 4 string soon.

Overall: This bass is fantastic!! High quality, plays and sounds incredible. The neck feels great, easy to play. The thud of this bass is unbelievable, will rattle your bones. I've had many basses, Ken Smith, MTD, Sage, Modulus, Roscoe, F bass, Zon and others. This bass can go one on one with any of those basses, no problem. In fact when it comes to heart pounding low end, the Fender beats them all. The electronics are top notch, the mid sweep is extra special, produces many usable tones. I would highly recommend this bass. A serious player definitely needs one of these in their arsenal.

Overall: I have a ton of basses and one more is never enough. This particular bass is my favorite bass in my collection not only because of all the bells and whistles it has but because it sounds fantastic. The quality is unmatched. Another great thing about this bass is the way it feels. When you first look at it, it seems to be a bit intimidating but I was surprised at how comfortable the instrument feels when you play it. The neck flattens into a D shape as you get to the higher frets. The pups are amazingly quiet. The electronics are top notch. I highly recommend the Fender American Jazz Elite V. Buy American Fenders if you can afford it. It is worth it at the end.
