I just ordered one today. Fingers crossed. I like the 3 color Sunburst with TORTOISE SHELL. My dream Bass I guess its to new because I don't see many people with this Bass on TB. I see it mentioned here and there but no posts dedicated to it. So this is my post. I play a Traben 5 string now but want the classic tone of a fender for the older songs and need the 5 for the new country music. This is my first big purchase new for a name brand Bass. You could call it my mid life crises. I got my Traben off of CL. I thought about the MIM but the wife talked me out of it, go figure. Any one out there have the newer American Standard Jazz 5 string?
