    In response to all you 'P' lovers out there (which are mighty fine basses as well) I just wanna say


    All in black, maple neck and fretboard and super low action, i wouldnt have believed that an off the shelf bass could sound so good. I know Fender have their knockers but when you get a good one you get a good one :)

    Thanks for listening

    And Fender Jazz loves you.

    But not in a gay way.
  3. Yeah, I got lucky with my Fender Jazz. I really enjoy playing it and have rid myself of other basses to keep this one company alone. Although I played my bass teacher's 1970s something Precision and it was also very, very sweet.
  4. Did you just buy it? If so..you already broke unwritten rule #1 by failing to provide pics.
    Congrats though...sounds like you got a great bass your happy with...which in the end is all that matters :)

    Oh ya...P's rule :D

    Really nice. One of my favorite Fender color combos in black/black with maple f/b.

    I have the exact same bass and I love mine too! :bassist:
  9. Is that an American Deluxe? If so, thats the exact bass I want further down the road. Beatiful! In Fender Frontline 2004, Oscar Cartaya is leanin on one exactly like it too. How do you like the Montego Black (assuming its a Am. Deluxe)? If its not, has anyone seen Montego Black? Oh, and Jazz Basses definately rock!

    No its not the deluxe, its the plain old standard - although there is some confusion on the names of the fender ranges that I have seen in another thread. Its not even one of the latest models with the S1 switch - just nice and plain and simple with bags of tone and warmth.
    Hope you get your bass soon!

  11. I think we should turn this into another show your Jazz thread since the other ones so old and half the pictures are dead. With your approval of course. ;)

    Swapped the white gaurd with a black one eh? I was going to ask if its one of the new American series basses with the S1 switch because they come with black gaurds. I have the older MIA without S1. I had to switch the white p/g with black! :D

    What strings do you use? I have tried many different types but I find that DR lo-riders or hi-beams bring out the best in the bass! :bassist:

    just got a new MIM fender jazz bass at GC yesterday..it has a really nice natural ash finish so i shelled out alittle more for it than the standard finishes...the salesman told me that was a GC exclusive(the natural ash finish on the MIM)i dont know how true or false that is but either way after a few small adjustments it plays like a dream... :cool:
  19. Nice man! We need pics!
  20. I'd love Fender Jazz basses a little more, too, if that was my Fender Jazz bass. Nice looking bass, bro.
