So I tried a Metro and I loved the tone but the playability wasn't workin' for me. So I picked up this Fender Victor Bailey Signature Model Jazz from a friend and beefed it up with Sadowsky Pick-ups and Pre-Amp. The body is a Koa top, rosewood middle and mahogany back. This babies a killer! Plays very smooth, the fret job is excellent, it's light, great sustain, and tone that just plain kills! I'm gonna put black Hipshot tuners and bridge on her soon. Check out the stick dude on the headstock. It's Victor, but it kinda resemles yours truly no? Anyways this was a good way get in the game for a little less scratch.
