Fender Troubles

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by paniak17, Jun 21, 2004.


  1. Here begins my long story of finding a bass.....

    So I ordered a bass from my local music shop. A Fender Deluxe Active Jazz V string....guess what...they said it would come in 7 to 10 buisness days...its day 11. I called them up and they said that fender doesnt make that model anymore and are redesigning it. It wont be availible till summer namm. I need a new bass....what do i do? should i wait till summer namm? can somebody help me out with this...I want a 5 string bass, in the $600 price range...i really am upset... :crying:
     
  2. i mean i bought a pickguard, new strings for it...the works...plz any suggestions.....heres what im looking for......

    5 string Jazz Bass
    Active
    preferably passive pickups
    around $600
    NOT over 600
    Not a no-name brand

    I'd take this bass over 50 Fenders..

    Might have to tag on an additional $50, but it would be worth it IMO.
     
  4. o yeah i forgot plz have 5 over tuning machines...i mean not like 4+1 or 3+2 like what progzilla posted...i just dont like the look of them

  7. Hi!

    I ordered a deluxe flycase for my Jazz Bass, I waited for 3 months in France!

    Actually, I ordered a deluxe Fender Leather strap, I ordered it in February and don't received it yet! :mad:

    Hey Mark, I've been looking at these. How would you compare them sound and quality-wise to say a Lakland Skyline 55-02?

    Thanks

    I've got an Am. Std. 5 string I'm selling that sounds like what you're after minus the Fender pre... it's got barts and is in perfect shape plus I live close enough to avoid shipping. Lemme know what you think man.
     
  16. i just went there to go get my deposit back...and they said that a newer version will be released during summer namm...so im going to wait it out i guess... :(
     
  17. Are they redesigning the 4 and 5 or just the 5?
     
  18. not sure, hopefully they up in quallity
     
  19. Wait it out, those basses sound good. Get a nicely playing one and you're set.
     
  20. finally someone makes some sence! :D
