...I bought a sunburst. 64 Jazz Relic from the Fender Custom Shop. Man, these basses are sweet! Tone, playability, everything. A bargain at the price, IMO, especially considering the going rate for vintage ones that don't sound and play a bit better. This one was made about a year ago according to the certificate and is brand new. Sweet. The "relicing" is a non-issue for me but these instruments are extremely well-made and have THE sound, no question about it.
