Well, Ive had my Ibanez GSR 205 (base model soundgear, made in taiwan.) for about 3 years now. 5 string, passive pickups. Ive had no real complaints with it, besided having to replace all the machine heads. But after playing a friends Fender, I decided I wanted to go back to Fenders. So looking at the Fender Standard Jazz basses at the local shop, I run across a Fender American Delux FMT (flame maple top) selling for under 800 bucks CDN. Great deal, since the list price is about a grand US. Besides not being able to figure out all the knobs in the store, I really liked the bass. Its got a 3 band eq, fader and volume pots, samarium cobalt pickups, and a whole bunch of other nice hardware features. Its MIA, so the quality is obvously there, and, what caught my eye, looks freakin amazing. So my question is, is the American Delux FMT worth the 100-200 dollars more than the Standard J bass? Or is the Ibanez good enough?
