    Hey everyone, there is an MIA jazz deluxe bass that i am looking at. But in order to try it, i have to have the local shop send it down from their NYC store. i am a fan of the color, and neck (transparent teal, maple neck w/ abalone markers) but i was curious as to fender's build quality in 98. I own a passive 98 and love it, but i wasn't sure what pickups they used, whether they had the graphite reinforced neck, etc... and i was curious if anyone could help me out with the info.

    IME the build quality was fine for that year. How it's been treated since is another question.

    Most of the 1997- on MIA JD basses I've tried have been very nice. I've owned two.
