    The Fender MIM Jazz I won from eBay came in today and it plays like a champ. I was worried at first because it was weird playing on such a smaller neck, but after awhile it felt so much faster than my other bass' neck. I was really happy with the packing job, it came in a new Gator gig bag, which was really nice. I paid $370 for it, including shipping, it's an '02 model and it has Seymour Duncan SJB-3 pickups in it. The tone knob on it was loose and had come slightly "undone" inside the bass, so I took the control panel off, and fixed it. It's good as new. This is my first good bass, my last one was a Jay Turser Stingray copy. It was decent sounding, but nowhere near the calibur of this.

    Nice bass, hope you enjoy it.

    If you know someone who is really good at setting up basses, consider spending a few bucks to get it set up professionally. Sometimes used basses aren't particularly well set up, and it might improve your new treasure greatly!

    It feels really good the way it's set up now. Nice low action, no fret buzz. I just can't wait for the Quann to come in.

    I'm gonna change it, but I think I'm gonna use a black pg on it. I just like the way they look on sunburst basses.

    I've never understood people's obsessions with tort pickguards. Everyone always wants to use TORT pickguards, no matter what the bass looks like. I don't think the tort would go with this one.
