Hello all: My new Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V QMT I just rec'd this a few days ago and I wanted to share it with everyone. I know I'm tootin' my own horn here - but so far this is a great bass. I have to take back everything bad I've said about Fender! At least the MIA's... http://home.earthlink.net/~cgworkman/bassgear/fender5/index.html Easy to play, great tone - the 18v pre is quite nice. I look forward to "getting to know it!"
