Well worth the money!

What is your overall opinion of this product?
This bass rocks! I got it as a back up bass and it is quickly becoming one of my favourites.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I play many different styles of music and it fits them all. From funk to punk and everywhere in between.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
Better than I expected. I knew it was a Mexi but it surpassed what I thought I would receive.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck is a standard Jazz neck, fast and clean. I play finger style over the back pickup and it is placed perfectly where I need it. Controls are so close I can roll off or on between notes almost!
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
It has every tone you have come to expect from the Jazz.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Very retro and my friends and fellow players all thought it was an old bass. I love it.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I got more than I expected for the price. I'm still going to add an American Jazz but only because I've always wanted one. But this bass is very very close in every category!
How was the action out of the box?
I only had to do a minor setup job, because I put very light strings on it and so I could lower the action just a bit more.
