After returning my G.LEE bass I still wanted a Jazz bass,so i played a few and was not moved to buy any of them. On my way out I seen a vintage looking Fender jazz with a 700.00$ price tag and thought it was a Highway one series,upon further inspection it was a custom Mexican 60's J-Bass. Its not any one year in perticular,it has many of the best options that were avalible in that decade,LIKE vintage hardware,smaller frett size,vintage p-ups,3 color s/burst,alder body without the extra routing used on cheaper mex basses(if you take off the p-gaurd it looks like a jaco bass,not like a mexican with the extra routing in the body to make wiring easier)and neck adjustment at the bottom of the neck. And ALL the parts are american made(just like the custom shop ones)and not of the lower quality of the mex standard basses,Its assembled in mexico is the only thing that makes it different from the custom shop re-issue. And by no means am I a fan of the Mexican series basses but I must admit that its a great bass for the money(685.00$)It set-up like a dream and sounds like the real deal,and I managed to get it for 500.00$. A friend told me that at Guitar Center if you ask for a discount(aside from the usual lower than the list price)G.C. will ALWAYS knock another 15-25% off the sticker price,I know because I got the Mark Hoppus bass for a buddy and only paid 325.00$(usually 565.00$),and the G.Lee jazz for 525.00$(usually 699.00)and the 60's re-issue for 520.00$(usually 685.00$)so the trick works,I'm not special,they will do it for anyone one anybass thats not on sale already,so before you decide to go elsewhere at least ask for the discounted price I'm 3 for 3 with it. Any feedback on this vintage bass from Mexico ?
