Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? As well made as any American Fender below the custom shop grade. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? 70's pickup spacing is nice. Be sure you buy a case. The gig bag is decent but you will want it in a case. General Your general opinion of this product. Definitely worth the money. Even without a case. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Gets the Geddy sounds and will also smooth out. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is superb. No runs or drips. Not as heavy as the poly on the Mexican Fenders.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I bought this GL Jazz about a year ago. I'm thinking that this made in Japan replica fender jazz stands up to the ones made in the US that i have tried. It was very solid out of the box. 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 best thing about this bass is that it has few features and is alot of bass for the money. Even if you are not a Rush fan, you can really dig in aggressively or lay right back with this bass. The neck is thinner than most other Jazz basses. You can get around it fast and easily with smaller hands like myself. The sturdy badass bridge is also a great feature. My only complaint is that Fender should supply a hardshell case for the bass. General Your general opinion of this product. I think the GL Jazz is a great addition to the collection or used as a main bass. I like to have options, but i do use this one frequently for recording and live shows. It has not let me down. I do check the neck often considering it is thinner than most Jazz basses. Although I have not had any problems with the neck so far, I would recommend that it be kept in it's case in a desirable climate. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The reissue passive pickups have a really good punch to them which is the tone i seek. I am usually an active EMG kinda guy, but these have a distinct sound that is as good as anything i've heard. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint job looks great and seems very durable. I did change out the white pickguard for a black one just to change it up a little. The neck has a real nice gloss finish. Some may prefer to knock the finish on the back of the neck with emery cloth, but i find that the finish has not hindered my playing style.
Awesome!!!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I have played an American standard for years and I think the Geddy Lee plays and has better tone! 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 entire bass is the feature! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I easily get a good bright growl all the way to a big fat beefy low end. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I got the sunburst and put a pickup cover on it and it looks better than my 75!
Great Bass

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The Japanese Fender shop is doing a great job, as evidenced by this bass. Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Perfect Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? nice narrow neck for us players with short fingers. General Your general opinion of this product.

QUALITY:
Very nice bass, action is a little low. But dont take my word for that im just starting to play bass

FEATURES:
nothing out of the ordinary just great sound. i bought it for the piano string growl that i read it gives. the reviews are true. great sound, maybe because of the maple fretboard?

EASE OF USE:
very easy to play, tuners are good, im very happy

VALUE:
its made in japan but those who know fender stuff made in japan is much much better than the mexican stuff. its just like a us made fender. read reviews at harmonycentral.com they corroborate what im telling you. i had an american strat, this bass' quality is just like it

SOUND:
Wonderful, again i played guitar and piano b4 but i just started playing bass. The sound it gives me has only helped.
Your general opinion of this product. Very satisfied. As my rating shows, I'm sure I could find better, but for the price, this bass is a steal. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? nice mixture here. easy to get the rush sound but a tune here or there and any tone your looking for Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? By varying your pick attack and the tone controls, this bass can be all things. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The black finish is flawless and I love the black fretboard markers. How did the stain or paint job look? Jap made so flawless
