Just got this '64 Relic from a very nice cat on the FDP named Chris Brusa. I've been going back to my fours more and more these days, especially for my classic rock gigs. Anybody who thinks Fender can't make a great bass obviously hasn't gigged with one of these Custom Shop instruments. Hard to imagine a better sounding or playing Jazz! Man, this thing growls and rocks with the best of 'em. I own several pre-CBS Fenders but this recent Custom Shop bass is as good as any J I've ever owned or played! Sweet, you bet!
