    i made a Thread the other day asking for players opinion on the best MIM Fender Bass, so far for MIM i like the Reggie Hamilton. I recently ran into alot of money, so i would like players opinions on which Fender bass is the best period they have played. i will try out any of the opinions, so i will appreciate any replies, thanks!
  2. For me, that is easy. My 75RI is the finest Fender I have EVER played. Period. End of Story.

    Everything about that honey is class. Pure class!

    Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!

    The best Fender I ever played is my MIM Jazz. It's also the only one I've ever played so, yeah.

    "Off the rack" - the American Vintage RI's are a good deal and are being discontinued (so I've read) and there are some good deals out there.

    thank you for all the replies, i will try as many as i can. alot of these replies help me with my assumptions on which basses i may like. i initially was think the 75RI.

    Don't forget the 2012 American Standard Jazz or Precision.

    The best Fender I have ever owned is a AMD P.
  16. What style of music? What are you expecting from the bass? Do you prefer skinny or fat necks? Is weight a factor?

    Do you want a P or a J? The MIA Standards are pretty awesome.

    The best I've ever played is my 57' AVRI P bass, which is exactly why it's mine :)

    They are revamping the line up, so they'll be back. Most are speculating a winter NAMM release.

    Your choice :

    everything else is just a color variation or they tag a name on it to sell it higher.

    The last American standard jazz I played was glorious. Really nice bass for the money.
