After going to 3 different Guitar Centers I am a bit wary of the abuse these instruments take. I was really surprised when at the redondo Beach store they had a Jazz with the input jack ripped right out of the bass. They also wouldn't go down on the price. So eventually I walked out... still empty handed. Am I better off buying online? Finding a MIM Fender Jazz Deluxe in good confition for a fair price has been a real drag.
