General What is your overall opinion of this product? Picked this up for my kid who wanted to start learning how to play. I own an Fender American Deluxe, which I love, so we went for this specific bass. It feels great! I don't think I've played another bass in the price range that feels better. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Great build for the price range. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The Jazz bass features are great and work and play as they should. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck is very thin - Excellent for our young beginner. FAST. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I purchased the Candy Apple Red and it looks terrific. It's a really neat finish. Playability How was the action out of the box? Tuned it up and it was ready to go. Didn't need to play with the action! Awesome.
My first Jazz - Love it!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Purchased this to switch over from a P-Bass. I really like the P-Bass, but I find the body shape and slimmer neck of the J-Bass a little more comfortable. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? So far it's great! I can't find any flaws. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Because of the body and neck shape, it feels slimmer than my old P-Bass. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Seems a little brighter than the P-Bass. I like how you can get a slightly different tone by fingering over the neck or bridge pick-up. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks great! I purchased this as a "scratch and dent" special from AMS, and after looking it over, I still can't find any flaws in the finish! Thanks AMS! Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Yes...actually it is better than what I expected at the price I paid. Playability How was the action out of the box? No complaints. I'm still a student of the bass, but everything feels great as it is.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very dependable. Always ready to go. Takes a good amount of abuse before it kicks back. 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 custom kill switch I installed on mine.... :) Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Full range of tone as I need it. Great lows. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish looks great. Can crack easily.
