    Hi, I'm thinking of getting a USA Jazz deluxe 4 bass.
    Could anyone out there give me some info?
    My main concern when buying a bass is the neck.
    Does it have a good neck? what about the sound?
    Anyone post a pic of there's?

    Many thanks.

    What exactly do you mean by good neck? Worring about warping? Size? Feel? You're asking very subjective questions. Have you ever tried one or are you buying from a catalog/internet?

    In my opinion, I feel that the Mexican Jazz Deluxe is a better sounding & playing bass. This bass has the same pickups & electronics as the older MIA Jazz DLX's. (not the Noiseless p/u's that the newer ones have.) The only thing I like better on the USA DLX is the downsized body. IMO, the neck is alittle too chunky for me.

    Here's mine. Imagine it with one less string and a regular top.
