So in case you don't know, I fell in love with my MIA Jazz Deluxe with the East J Retro Dlx. It outlasted my Status, it beat a Sadowsky in everything. My only beef... it looked plain. So I went on the hunt for a pretty bass with the same characteristics. I found this, a Fender FMT Deluxe J. So far, I love the thing. It was cheaper than the Sadowsky by a lot and yet, made way better. In fact, it's almost as good as my old baby, but it needs my special touch... and a U Retro DLX.
