    hey i'm going to order a Fender American Vintage '75 Reissue Jazz Bass and was wondering what would be the best place to order from? Would it be better to order from a shop (Guitar Center, Sam Ash) so i get the warranty, or would the quality be better if i ordered from aan online place (basscentral)?

    Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated, thanks

  2. go to a guitar shop, that holds a decent amount of fender guitars.
    they might have one in stock and play it and go over it.

    i'd personally order thru a shop then online

    i have a 75 RI, its a great bass

    You should get the same warranty regardless of where you purchase the bass. The warranty is a factory perk, not a store perk. You may get a couple of free set ups if you buy from a local store, but you will have to negotiate for them, and make sure you get that in writing on your receipt.

    I would feel comfortable ordering from anyplace as long as it was not the Guitar Center.
