Just a quick review...............I have been playing very high end basses for many years now. Not anymore for several reasons but: I was recently in a Sam Ash and saw a basically NEW, Used usa Jazz Deluxe. It had a terrible setup on it but I was intrigued so I asked the sales person to get me the truss rod tool and an allen wrench. After a few minutes I had it setup well enough to want to take it home for a try (30 return policy) Man, I have to say that this bass totally KILLS, after a bit more tweaking it plays like butter and sounds great, Love the neck (and the block inlays). This is a 2011 model and I am very impressed. I have never been a Fender fan but this bass is really quite nice. Any one else have the same experience with Fenders recently?
