I bought this bass second hand. The first thing I felt was the balance. It seems to balance well in all positions.
The sound range for a passive bass is enormous.. from a twang that we'll never use through a growl to a boomy bass. I have not set my amp beyond flat and still get the palette.
This is a beautiful bass in all respects, an extension of the body, and a worthy embodiment to leo F's original vision. Great fun.

This, the 2017 Fender Standard Jazz... the last year for the Standard Series was a great example of these instruments.
The satin finish maple neck with the gloss finished maple fretboard on this bass is very, very nice. I like the black TV logo too.
Everything else is just your run of the mill original Jazz bass spec... and it's wonderful!
These will always count as a stand by workhorse of a bass, affordable but worthy of any stage.
