I've played 2. The Jag at a GC in Clear Lake and the new Jazz up here at Rockin Robins. On both the frets stuck out from the neck (its hard to describe), but like then you're running up and down the neck you can feel the frets in your palm. The Jag had a terrible setup, but I don't expect any less from that GC. The Jag was REALLY HOT! I loved the tone, out of the p more so than the back pup, but it was still awesome. The jazz's over all feel of the neck was pretty good, which I thought was strange because I've hated the necks on all the normal VM jazzes I've played. The neck pup solo'd was pretty hot, but the neck all the way up with slight volume on the bridge pup was REALLY FUNKY. It had an awesome funk tone, and decent slap tone (w/ knowing that I can't slap to save my life. One thing I hated above all, was the raw necks. I hate raw maple (IMHO one of the few flaws in my musicman). Just my 2cents.
