    That's a very nice bass, congrats !
     
  3. Looks good! I bought my MIM Fender Deluxe V from a guy who had just bought a bass just like that!
     
  4. just a curiosity question, how much did you pay for the MIM V..? i'm just curious because to me this one seemed really cheap.
     
  5. SICK!!! Mine's a '97 MIA Jazz V too... i gots me a black one. I love it!!!
     
  6. My MIM V came with EMG pickups and the BTB-01 preamp, and I paid about $370. I then sold the EMGs (because they didn't fit the routes properly) and replaced them with Barts that fit the routes PERFECTLY. I have about $500 in the bass...

    Very nice, man ... good luck with it! I have a '92 MIA 5, extremely solid bass.

    Isn't it wierd that in spite all of the new beautiful designer/boutique basses that are out there, it just somehow always feels right when you get a good Fender? :) :) :)
     
  9. i went in thinking " okay i don't need anothe Fender, i'll stay away from Fenders." but then afetr i looked at what they had in my price range ( aprox. 1000.00 Can) i saw this Jazz V Deluxe hanging in the corner with a regular price of $1650 down for $999. it was perfect and i love it now.

    How I love Fender Jazz V's.
    I don't own one yet, but it's definetely on my to buy list!!

    There's just something about the neck on the Fender Jazz V's that makes my knees go all soft.. ..the string spacing and width on them just feels perfect for my likings. I don't think I would've liked the spacing that wide on another bass, but it feels just right on this one. And the neck is just as thick as it needs to be.
    In addition to that, they sound magnificent. At least the one's I've tried. :hyper:
     
  11. Until I found a passive MIA J 5 for $425- now it's my cheapest & most requested bass (and I like them, now).
