Sea Foam Green, Very Nice!
Why is that stupid?
Does it it come with the wrong pickups or is it black?
may the bass be with you
Hey, nothing stupid about saving $65!
Bought one and retuned it within 2 days. Jazz pickup is so weak its useless, P pickup isn't much better (very dull and lifeless tone) neck has a sticky finish, terrible fret ends and bent neck...the Squier Affinity PJ I bought for $199 came much nicer. I would not buy one of these sight unseen. There is a good reason GC and MF keep putting these on sale, trying to get rid of them Im sure. Mine was a 2016 that had been in GC forever.
I Fully agree.
Got one as blemished for 450$.Its the worse bass i had for reasons you stated and more.A pickup swap didnt save it either.
you could get more off of any Fender on any day by calling them up
That's exactly why this is a stupid deal. These things are dogs with a capital d.
It isn't even really seafoam green. It's 50s laminate countertop green.
I bought a sunburst PJ when it was on sale in February. Fit and finish were amazingly good.
Same issues with the J pickup, couldn’t get a sound I liked.
It was also a 2016 ☹️. I returned it.
Still too expensive for a Mexican bass imo. Plus, the ones I've tried felt too heavy.
P/J pickups (looks like the J is in the 70's position, closer to the bridge?) and a J neck on a P body.
There must be people that have been waiting for this exact bass.
I think they sold a ton of them initially. There was quite a few raves on TB singing their praises which is how I ended up trying a couple out. My old MIM jazz from the 90s is leagues apart from this thing.
Oh, darn you all to Heck for making me click that link!
...and I'm not even into Fenders at all.
Very nice, always loved that color. Looks good with the white guard and maple neck but I think it would really pop with a rosewood neck. (I just prefer rosewood necks personally )
Don't like to kick something when it's already down, but I returned mine in just one day. Somebody went nuts with the poly finish on the neck. It wasn't just sticky, it was creepy.
Your link show nothing.
dang that’s nice
I thought the same thing but ended up getting the flea rw jazz and love it. I get relic stuff isn’t for everyone but that bass is outstanding. Just my $.02 on MIM fenders.
hmm, the most distinguishing features I use to recognize a 70's era jazz bass is not there.
