last month I bought myself a G.LEE J-Bass,after some luck-less attemt's to set it up properly I was forced to return it due to some heavy neck issue's. But much to my dis-may the only Jazz bass they had at the store(G.C.)was a Mexican 60's jazz bass re-issue model . i am no fan of Mexican basses but I took a chance and tryed it out,and much to my complete suprise it was an excellent bass for the money(899.00)$$ I compared it to the American stack knob J-Bass and from aside from a couple of minute details it's an equally well made as the american. and nits 600.00$ less.
