    At a local music shop i found a 1995 used Fender American Jazz Bass that costs 599$. I'm thinking that's a good deal, and instead of the Fender J-Pickups it has two Bartolini jazz pickups. It also comes with a hard shell case. I've been playing for about 2 years and i think this would be a good bass because my fender Squire P-bass just isnt cutting it for me. I'm on the edge of buying this bass and i just want to see if i would be making a good decision. Can anyone help me out?

    I think it sounds like a great bass. If it plays ands sounds good to you I say buy it. The price sounds fair to me.

  4. If it is in good condition, then it is a good price - you get the hard case and the upgraded pickups too.
