Another MASTERPIECE from Leo Fender's Factory...
Model Year: 2002
Price: $680.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Emporio Musicale Senese
Alder Body, Maple Neck, Rosewood Fretboard.
Fretless, 20 inlaid white fretline markers (Jumbo).
2 Volumes, 1 Tone.
Jazz Configuration (2 Single Coil).
Jazz body Style.
Standard Vintage Style.
Good playability, maybe hard at first, because of Jumbo frets.
The neck is very jazzy... not too slow but it could be better.
In my opinion Fender basses can be compared only with luthiers' ones...
For the flaws...See next.
It's perfect for Jazz, Blues and Ska, average-sounding for funky.
The controls allow a wide range of sounds from full to dark...
The main flaw is that it nearly can't be heard on stage, so it can only be used for Studio or "Chamber music"
