    The Fender Jazz bass (or one of its "upgraded" models made by a third party) is the best bass ever created. Period.

    Discuss for the benefit of those looking for the best bass.

    I own several different types of basses and for some reason I always reach for the jazz. The slim neck and insanely low action with no fretbuzz is one of the main reasons I love my Jazz.

    Personally I'll take a Ric or a Stingray. I like the vintage Jazz basses better than the new ones. The new ones are not at all bad instuments, I just don't think they are as good as the older ones. Overpriced too. I have had about four or five in my lifetime. The older ones had something the new ones lack but I just can't nail it? :scowl:

    Please help me understand. What is the "best?" And "best" for whom? Is Korn the best rock band? Or is Toro the best lawn mower?
