I’ve been playing guitar for over 20 years, and I recently seriously took up bass as well. This new addition to the Fender catalogue is just the thing for the life-long guitarist who absolutely LOVES the Fender Jazz Bass as well. I have a few Strats, and a couple of Teles as well, but I suspect they won’t get nearly as much use now that I have this awesome guitar in my arsenal. The action, fit and finish were perfect right out of the box, and the thing sounds just as great as it looks. I usually swap out the stock pickups on new guitars, but there was absolutely no need on this baby. It is honestly fast becoming my favorite axe, and I could not be happier. Looks great, plays great, sounds great. Fender knocked it out of the park with this one.
