New bass! Beautiful MIM Jazz

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Gunnar Þór, Sep 13, 2002.


  1. Finally! :D

    I got this today. Beautiful Made in Mexico Fender Jazz bass, midnight wine I think the finish is called. I've wanted a jazz since before I started playing so this is a little dream come true. :)

    It's got an alder body and a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, and it sounds like... like... it's REALLY good anyway. :D Medium action, which is very liberating after the super-high action on my P, and I got a good deal on it (Considering I'm in Iceland). And the sustain, man. It's like "Waaaaaah". You can go an' 'ave a bite an' it'll still be "Waaaaaaaah". :D

    The pics really don't do the finish justice.
    Some pics below.

    I have the same exact bass purchased about 8 months ago. I love it and always get compliments on the midnight wine color.

    I had a Hljóðfærahúsinu once, but it ran away with the dish and the spoon :(

    Hljóðfærahúsið = Musical instrument shop.

    Til hamingju með bassann Gunnar!
    Er hann nýr?

    I once had a woman ask: "Is that a Hljóðfærahúsið in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
     
  13. Just say it like it's written. :D

    Hann kostaði 58.000 krónur og hann er nýr. Mér finnst það nokkuð gott miðað við hvað það hefði kostað að flytja hann sjálfur inn.

    Modell: You know that line about great minds? :p

    Absolutely goregeous bass by the way. I loved the way my MIM Jazz bass sounded with the stock pickups.
