The solid pearl inlays and all of the eq options including passive/active switch for the pickups Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It is about average size for a five string bass, with easy-to-access controls Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? It can be adjusted to hit muddy lows for a deep, smoother feel, to bright highs with heavy tone, and everything in between. The pickups were very sleek andbrbrought the bass to life.

About the same price, but the finance plan was impossible to beat. Playability How was the action out of the box? Perfect. Was not too far from the fret board, nor too close.
Amazing bass, how sweet the sound!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? There is a good reason why so many manufacturers try to emulate the sound of a Fender bass. Every note sounds great, and it has so much versatility between the active and passive modes and the simple tone controls. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The quality is amazing. There is not a bad note anywhere on the neck. I can see using this bass for anything from classic rock to Sunday worship music. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? I can easily vary the tone just by panning slightly between the front and rear pickups. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The bass is a bit heavy, but I'm enjoying playing it so much I don't notice it while I'm playing. I have learned to hold the bass with both hands between songs to give my shoulder a rest. The feel of the neck is solid and sure. It makes me feel like a pro to play it! Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone is just about whatever you want it to be, and has more consistent output across the neck than most basses I've tried. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I bought the transparent wine finish, and it is beautiful. It wasn't what I was originally looking to get, but I'm so glad that I decided to get this finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? You can pay way more for a Fender sound-a-like, why not just buy the real thing? Playability How was the action out of the box? I'm used to playing narrower necks than the Jazz, but the feel is so solid I can play things that I could not play on some of my other basses.
I love this bass

Simple perfect Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Yes, and also my favorite feature is the active/passive mode. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Neck, is very ergonomic, it's little confusing for me to get to the controls while I am playing I need to sit down and study every knob, since this bass it comes with a lot of variations on sound.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It's a Fender! Enough said. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The neck's compound radius takes a little getting use to but is very comfortable once you do. The string guides aren't nearly as much of a pain in the a$$ as I thought they would be. The block inlays are a real head turner General Your general opinion of this product. I've played many high end basses and I always come back to the Jazz Bass. It just has that "it" factor. You could buy this one or the less expensive models and they are all great. Fender quality is better than ever and this bass is proof. I take it out of the case and everybody turns and looks. I funk on this bass and everyone comes up and compliments me. This bass is my go to instrument every night. It's worth every penny and I can't get enough of it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Any tone you could ever want is achievable. I actually prefer the passive side more but I switch back and forth depending on the song or whatever Finish How did the stain or paint job look? looks great
