General What is your overall opinion of this product? This is a great marriage between the Precision and the Jazz Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The quality of this bass is great... The pickup configuration and controls allows clean high end sound as well as kick a$$ bottom Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The Jazz neck for playability, the bigger and heavier precision body that allows longer sustain Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck is great... Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Yes to all the suggestions... Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Not a big fan of the color... the finish is good, need to come in white or black Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Great price for what you get... Playability How was the action out of the box? The action was what you would expect... no adjustments were necessary

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Black version. Arrived very quick. The finish and fit are great. I play through an Ampeg so it produces every possible tone. I like the JB neck for its quick action. Overall, I love this thing. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Excellent quality. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? I was looking for an active set up for reasonable money and I found it with this bass. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Smooth feel. Maple fretboard is very fast. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Still exploring. Lots to explore. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Flawless. Viva Fender Baja! Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Sweet price. Excellent value proposition. Playability How was the action out of the box? Great set up right out of the box.
I love it!

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well made fit and finish are great - lots of compliments on the white pearl/gold combination. Very dependable - I gig with this bass almost exclusively now. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Love the C-shaped neck and the active electronics. I added a gold Gotoh high-mass bridge to mine and it's a HAMMER. Tone, tone, tone! General Your general opinion of this product. I play blues, country, classic rock and this bass is well-suited to all three styles. As I said above, this is my #1 instrument over my American Standard Jazz Bass. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone is whatever you want - from fat and dark to bright. Active electronics are responsive to technique so it's easy to get any tone you want from this bass. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The white pearl is gorgeous! The gold pickguard (plastic) looks good, but I'm going to replace it with anodized aluminum. I replaced the stock bridge with a gold Gotoh high-mass bridge; gold tuners and knobs will be next. I think Fender should offer this bass in white and gold with all gold hardware...
