    I know this bass looks gaudy, but it is put together better than any other Fender, especially passive, than I can think of. The fret work is perfect. The neck reminds me Music Man in terms of the finish. The bridge, tuners, all hardware is perfect.

    The pickups are outstanding. This bass has the best bridge pickup I have heard ever. The output of the bridge pickup is head and shoulders over the bridge pickup of my beloved DJ5.

    To be clear, I am not in the market for this bass, but anyone who wants a Seventies style Fender Jazz should give this bass a long, hard look if you can afford the $1,999 price tag.

    I remembered that I loved the bridge pickup on the Fender Flea Jazz too. Maybe Fender is stepping up their game with bridge pickups?

    Notes clear as a bell, and popping off of the fretboard! That's one of the best
    passive basses that I have heard you demo! Great bass and great demo! :thumbsup:

    P.S. - I'll take the Adam Clayton passive over the Flea bass!

    My daughter forgot her lunch, and something just told me to come by the store. I wish I had a repertoire of songs prepared ahead of time.

    That bass is something else, I think the Adam Clayton Jazz can to toe to toe with Suhr, Lull, Lakland, Moollon, or anybody else’s passive boutique Fender clone.
