    I want to buy a new bass and I have the choice between a brand new American deluxe jazz bass ou a used Victor Bailey Jazz Bass. What is the major differences between these two basses. What would be the best buy?

    Well, it seems to be the same preamp and pickups, same neck too. But the Victor Bailey has gold hardware and the body is a fancy mix of woods, not the traditional alder or ash.
  3. +1 and about $400 more for the vb. I personally prefer the looks of the deluxe. I doubt if the tone or playability of either will be much different.
