My new Cherryburst Jazz has arrived!

  1. Yippee!

    A week ago I found an interesting MIM Jazz on the net. It looked gorgeous and the price was right so I decided to take my chance and ordered it. Well, the bass arrived today and I can happily say that the risk paid off!:hyper:

    It sounds good and is every bit as beautiful as I imagined. The playability seems to be in place too, although the factory strings are too light for my tastes. So I´ll have to reserve my judgement on that after I have changed the strings and tweaked the action accordingly. But I´m pretty sure I have a player in my hands!

    Without further ado, here are the pics:

    I couldn´t catch the real effect of the cherryburst finish on any of these pics, but you get the idea. I might post some sound clips (along with some samples of my Neuser, so that she won´t get too jealous) later too. But now, if you excuse me, I´m going to play with my new toy! :bassist:

    That's beautiful, man. Congratulations. :)

    I read your post about this a week ago and I really loved that bass. I wish I could get a MIM like that here in the States. :meh:

  6. that must be the most beautifull mim jazz I've ever seen
  7. I don´t think so, looks like the real thing. Also, I´m under the impression that foto-flame was strictly a 90´s MIJ thing. I could be wrong of course.
  8. I hear ya. I had been thinking about getting a MIM Jazz for several months, but the colors were so dull: black, white, sunburst... I know they are considered "classic" Fender finishes and many ppl like them, but I wanted something different. Then I found that CB and fell in love...
