I got a killer deal on a nice brown burst American Fender Jazz bass today The bass is near mint and it only cost me $500 at guitar center! Very resonant, killer tone and I really dig the through body stringing. It's a 1986 model and has aged nicely. What wood is the body btw? Is it ash? It seems rather heavy, but definfately beefs the tone up Anyway, two thumbs up, it's definately a keeper and my #1 bass now..
