    I just got my MIA Fender Jazz Bass. Before, I was playing the Ibanez gsr 100 (a beginner bass) its great to have a nice bass to play, with some tone and playability. I really love it, but the strings on it are really old. (Its a 97) I got it off ebay and heres one of the pics!
     
  2. Congrats! Love the color. Glad you're happy with it!

    Congratulations! My '97 MIA Jazz feels wonderful. As a matter of fact, everyone I've heard from with a '97 MIA Fender is pleased. It must have been a good/magical year for them. :)

  10. Sweet bass. Does Fender call that color 'Lake Placid Blue?' I had a G&L bass a couple years ago with basically the same color.

    Is that what Blue Agave looks like? If not anyone have an example pic? I also really dig that color.
     
  15. Sweet bass! . Really nice. I had one just like it but sold it about 2 years ago. I wish I hadn't .. I am so happy for you! Nice tile. I have the same tile in my kitchen ..Home Depot?:) Congratulations on your big step forward in the bass world. Fender Jazzer's rule!!!!
     
  16. pssst, you can probably delete this thread since you accidentally created two identical threads. ;)

    EDIT: never mind, looks like the two threads got merged.

    Very nice bass, BTW:D
