Top of the line. To get any better you will have to go to the custom shop. You can get the traditional tone of a Jazz bass and some new thunderous tones easily shaped -from fat low end to crisp high end. Setup consisted of tuning the bass - I can't say enough good things about the neck. I have always preferred the older, thicker necks, this one is a nice balance - and the flatter back makes it very easy to play. The new upper design give you easy access to the complete fret board.After I ordered the bass, I saw the color was really 'black' but the new Texas Tea finish - I was concerned by the descriptions, but I love the finish, very subtle hints of green/brown - but mainly you get 'none more black' for the color.Can't put it down! A home run!*disregard my Manufacturer Support rating as I have not used it, so I can't really say one way or the other.
