General What is your overall opinion of this product? This bass arrived in great condition, in its case (nice case), and double-boxed. The setup was pretty bad, but based on the inspection tags it has been sitting around somewhere for a year and a half, so I guess some of that is to be expected. I now have the setup dialed in and it plays like a dream. This is replacing an Ibanez SR1800, which is a beautiful piece of woodwork, but I could never get the sound that I was looking for. This bass has a toggle for active/passive and is just generally more versatile than the Ibanez. If you want warm and thumpy, you can get that. If you want a brighter sound, it can do that just as well. Comparing this bass to the Ibanez is not exactly apples to apples, but the Jazz gives me options that the SR1800 did not. It is all very subjective, but I have found what I was looking for. The Ibanez will go up for sale but I really can't see ever parting with this Jazz.
It is great

What is your overall opinion of this product? It has a great sound and good feel to the neck. I was not crazy about the set up. The strings are high and we had to put the proper bow to the neck. After about 15 minutes of setup the bass plays like a dream. I like real low action and most bass necks will not allow that. This bass will let you set it up almost as low as a telecaster. Before you get a string vibration from the frets.
Good, not great
