    Glad I didn't make an idiotic purchase. One day I'll upgrade to that Carvin I drool at.

    If you get one used in good shape or if you decide to buy new, it's a bass that will serve you a lifetime. Provided that it's taked care of.

    Also there are many upgrades available. Several part manufactures such as Warmoth produces quality parts for Fender. So if you want to change, say the neck for instance, It as easy as pie.
     
  6. I'll agree with By-Tor it's a bass that will last a lifetime if'n you take good care of her.

    i got one. i don't play her much cause i like the thicker neck of the p-bass. but i don't think i will ever part with her... she purrs like a kitten.
     
  10. Wonderful choice. If you ever want to upgrade later on, you can bolt on a J-retro preamp and/or a pair of Duncan Antiquity pickups, and you'll have an awesome bass.
     
  11. Good move! It's hard for me to imagine going to a gig without a Jazz Bass.

    You can't go wrong with a Fender Jazz or Precision bass. Good for a novice or a seasoned pro or anyone in between.

    It's an excellent choice, and not just for beginners.
