    Anyone have any opinions/input on 82 and 83 Fender Jazz basses? I may consider one.

    Kind of depends, Ive owned 3 82 Jazz bass all with dots and binding on the neck. All 3 were boat anchors, sounded and played alright just way to heavy. I owed 2 83 American Standards with the 2 way truss rod and one piece pick guards(still own the Burst), it's the lightest and one of the best sounding basses I own. I have owned about 9 83 P basses and P bass elites. Again the Elites were all boat anchors while the Standards were all great sounding and light weight( I still own 2 AS P basses, (Sienna Burst and Red Fretless). I'm a big fan of the 83,84 American Standard Jazz and Precision Basses.
