I have been thinking about getting a mim jazz delux. I wanted a bass that had some active electronics in it, and that didn't cost too much. I have owned a mim squire jazz, and i thought it played pretty well after a pro tuneup and some new strings, besides the bad pickups. I tried one out, but the neck needed serious adjustments, along with the bridge. Not to mention it was at mars and has been touched by a million people. I might order one from mf again, because I have found that that I like the fact that when I get I will have been the first person to ever touch it. SAince I do have some money I have thought of putting a d-tuner or somtething like that on it and a bad ass 2 bridge, but I dont know if it is worth buying that bass, because I am not very good at tooling on my basses, even though I have done minor work on my pbass. If you have any ideas I would shure like the help.
