    Hello gents!

    I have a friend of mine and she is looking to buy a fender jazz bass 24. You know.... the only one with 24 frets..(lol)

    She wanted me to ask around and see if any of you have heard anything bad about these.

    thanks for the help.

    I wish they'd make a passive 24 Jazz, the only Jazz 24s I've seen are active :(

    i think the only compromise is that the slap tone will be different from a traditional jazz bass and that there is less room between the end of the neck and the neck pickup to hook your fingers under the strings to pop them.

    I have owned one since April and I really like it. I sent it out after picking it up @ GC and had the frets dressed and a good set up done. I strig it with Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky's

    It's an excellent sounding instrument. Has that Jazz bass tone but can give you a more modern type of tone that a passive Jazz. It can be very growly when you want it to. It has a three band EQ and a mid scoop togle switch so you can get a nice slap sound out it. The 24 frets come in handy for some of the songs we do at church.
