    I loved the color and look of these basses. From what I've heard via YouTube demos ,they sound great. I'm a big Biffy fan, so I'd love to pick one up down the line. First up was a mustang though, as I already own a Jazz.

    Obviously an aftermarket pickguard. It makes the bass look awesome IMO. Plan to change mine too.

    Squier JJ Jazz Bass is an amazing bass for the price, great sound and perfect finish, better than a lot of Fenders I'l play.

    Got this one in February of last year. Great bass. I use it as a back up when I play out live and use it as my primary practice bass. It sits out plugged in at all times to my GK 2x10 combo. Bought it as a bedroom bass and have bonded with it surprisingly well.

    When I got it the tuners were loose; the clovers were not secured to the peg. I had to use gorilla glue on every single tuner to keep it from buzzing.

    I then added the pick guard, bass extender and inlay stickers. Later on I added the Bad Ass II bridge.

    I have a Fender Marcus Miller Jazz and Fender 75 RI Jazz that I use along side this one, believe me it holds its own.

    I don't have one but this video makes me want one:

    This guy's awesome. The video also makes me want a looper and learn Czech.

    I'm considering getting another. A jazz bass or a five string. Not sure yet.

    Great basses. Should have kept the one I had.:help:

    Nice. I still play mine frequently although I have more expensive basses that I gig. I find this bass to be of comparable quality to my Marcus Miller and MIJ 75 Ri.

    Great bass. Congrats.

    Bass Master General you are number 8. Congrats on a great bass. Highly recommend a red tort pickguard.
     
  18. Yeah, the aftermarket PG was kind of the clincher when I found this one... :)

    The stock mint green pickguard was just too weird for me. Would have preferred just plain white over the mint green.
