    i made a Thread the other day asking for players opinion on the best MIM Fender Bass, so far for MIM i like the Reggie Hamilton. I recently ran into alot of money, so i would like players opinions on which Fender bass is the best period they have played. i will try out any of the opinions, so i will appreciate any replies, thanks!

    For me, that is easy. My 75RI is the finest Fender I have EVER played. Period. End of Story.

    Everything about that honey is class. Pure class!






    Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!

    The best Fender I ever played is my MIM Jazz. It's also the only one I've ever played so, yeah.

    "Off the rack" - the American Vintage RI's are a good deal and are being discontinued (so I've read) and there are some good deals out there.

    Don't forget the 2012 American Standard Jazz or Precision.

    What style of music? What are you expecting from the bass? Do you prefer skinny or fat necks? Is weight a factor?

    Do you want a P or a J? The MIA Standards are pretty awesome.

    The best I've ever played is my 57' AVRI P bass, which is exactly why it's mine :)

    They are revamping the line up, so they'll be back. Most are speculating a winter NAMM release.

    Your choice :
    P
    PJ
    J
    Jaguar


    everything else is just a color variation or they tag a name on it to sell it higher.

    The last American standard jazz I played was glorious. Really nice bass for the money.
