The other day I went to my local music shop and played an MIM Fender Jazz bass...and it was amazing! I've played like around a dozen Jazz basses in the past 2 or 3 years and this one was by far the best, better than any MIA I played. The neck was extremely comfortable. Felt smaller than most other Jazz basses. The bass felt pretty light overall. Much lighter than my SX P bass. Only problem it had was it had some fret buzz, but I think a new bass should always get a setup. If I had had the money I would have snatched that up right away. But I don't have the money, or a job. So it was out of the question.
