I currently own an ibanez gsr200 and I want to buy a new bass. I was looking forward to buy a fender standard american jazz bass so I tried a few in a shop. Now, I want to say that I personally think my ibanez has a fast neck and plays really nice, especially for the price. But when I tried the fenders I just couldn't believe that the necks were really not that good. Sure they were built better than my ibanez but they were much stickier and didn't play as smooth and quick as my ibanez, whereas the fenders were about 5 times more expensive. I'm not talking about the weight right now just the necks. I hear people say how fender necks are one of the fastest necks out there, they're sure slim but how is it possible that my ibanez neck plays much nicer and quicker? I'm not halucinating by the way.
