My first Jazz - Love it!
By: Bob from Biloxi, MS
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
