Well basically, I played on some kind of Fender Deluxe Jazz Made in U.S.A. I totally fell in love with the feel and sound. I'm not sure which exact model it is, but it did not have a pick guard. Definitely an older instrument. Also it may not have had stock pickups. Just had a beautiful tone, slapping, picking, jamming RATM or any rock sounded good. My question is, would you go online a buy one similar if you were me? They're like $1279, so it's kinda heafty. I was at a local store and all they had were MIM's at the time. Also it would be nice to get a color that I like. Just wondering you're thoughts. Thanks.
