Very Nice Bass, Standard American Electronics, with
a Bad A-- Bass II Bridge with a Flame Maple Neck.
Very Nice bass
This bass plays very nice, The flamed maple neck
makes it really nice to look at too.
I play this through a little Samick Practice amp, and
Yorkville 200 watt Amp. You can coax pretty much any
sound out of this. Cycle-60 Hum is problem when
I'm playing by a TV or Computer though.
This bass is pretty durable, A few scratches, But
those are alright.
Before I bought my jazz bass I played some Warwick basses and some ESP basses but, even though some had nice qualities, they don't compare. If this bass were stolen the only thing I would do differently is by a delux edition. I don't think anything sould be better....maybe cooler looking tone and volume knobs (but who really cares about that) the only thing I'll change is little stuff to personalize it. The tone, playability and yumminess of this bass is hard to beat.

My bass (aka: "Bassjuice") is an tri-tone sunburst American Standard Jazz Bass (4 string) with a maple fretboard. It has front pickup volume, back pickup volume and tone knobs. Passive electronics. Fender J-bass pickups.
When I first got the bass the action was a little high, but it took me a year to figure that out. And it was easy to change...a couple twists of the truss rod. The neck is smooth and with my solid Nickel Fender Original bass strings it plays like a dream! I would never play any other bass and it contains no flaws that I have discovered yet. I'm not sure about whether or not I need Noiseless J-bass pickups. Send me a message if you have any input.
You can't get that meaty, punchy, deep Fender sound anywhere else my friends! The bass it one of the most versatile I know of. It's good for funk/slap, or soft rock, or metal, hey I've even used it to play Celine Dion. If you play a good American Fender through a good Fender amp you will fall in love with it....rich, dark, deep, hard or soft, light, breezy....you can do whatever you want. I have not noticed it at all noisey and I play with it on stage and for practice. One time a friend recorded a bass solo of mine when I played it at a gig. It sounds like the pros.
This is a heavy strong bass. It won't give you problems. My bass teacher threw his off a five foot high stage.....not a problem (well, maybe a scratch or two) I've only had to adjust the truss once simply to fit it to my preference. Excellent.....a man's bass!
Great guitar never once yet regreted buying it..Worth every penny...Check out my home page to see it in action.

A us made Jazz in special blue ( i think its a new colour version but don't quote me on that one).
A very versatile bass guitar. Has a good range of sound and the feel of the play is good. The action is not to high and not to low (just right) and it is a nice guitar to play and hold.
At present I am using this bass with a trace elliot 4x10 combo. The pickups are not the best around so I would advise changing them for some emg's to give that extra solid punch. A quick change of bridge can help you with more sustain and a better and warmer sound. The basic guitar sound is OK but lacks a bit of tone quality.
A good solid piece of wood.....nuff said

I also got a Epiphone Tunderbird. But I like the
Jazz Bass more. It's more real, somehow.
Also the Thunderbird is very good and sounds
also awesome. But I prefer
the Jazz Bass.

I looked at peavey's, washburns, other fenders at the time. incidently, i went with the am. std. 4 string as opposed to the delux because i don't like jacking in from the bottom of the bass.....and i also felt that i did not need the extra pots to define my sound...i could do that with my amp or what i had...look at jaco

American made, ash or alder body, rosewood fretboard, 20 jumbo frets, 2 pick up pots, tone pot, passive
custom color of sonic blue, string thru body, and a graphite reinforced neck.
hardshell case came with it also.
Low action awsome playing bass, extreamly smooth, the best electronics, and it came flawless.
I use a peavey amp to practice with and a gk amp to gig with...it fits all the types music i want to play, from bossa nova to hardcore. nice overall warm organic quality to it....
Very reliable, never really had to touch the truss rod or the intonation...once in 4 years, plays like new and never has failed me.
It is a great bass. The only thing is that is pretty heavy, and it bothers when you play for a few hours.

This is a very simple bass. It has two volumes, one for each pick up, and one tone. It is a string thru body, it has passive pickups, 21 frets, its body is natural ash color, the neck is all maple.
Easy playing bass, you can reach anything part of the bass very easily.
This bass can fit into any style of music, its very versatile.
I've crashed into every wall of the house with it, it fell once, inside the case, nothing happened to it.
