    That thing sounds fat even on my laptop speakers! And even better on headphones. Thanks for posting!:thumbsup:

    Definitely darker.

    I had one of the Musicmans Ltd Ed with solid rosewood necks and I didn't like it at all... the neck made it too dark. I was forever adding more treble and still not getting some of the normal signature from even a Musicman.

    Love the look of the Jazz Bass, and love shell pink.

    Ha. I’m dealing with sinus bs myself. Maybe I channeled that?

    I'll be checking out both the Jazz and Precision bass this week.
    First time I've been excited about a new Fender in quite some time, not counting the Traditional '60s Midnight P bass.

    I checked out the P a few weeks ago. I already had the J in layaway at another store. It was awful... (that’s what I said to myself 20 times in a row) I put it down and ran as fast as I could. Sat in the car a looked a pictures of my children and thought about their need to be fed.

    Yes darker, no question about it. I've been A-B-C'ing this bass with my US Jazz and US Precisions for a week. Still voiced like a Jazz, yet indeed has a distinctly P vibe. It's it's own thing, almost like a unique hybrid cross breeding thing going on tonally.

    Spot on. This thing sounds absolutely outstanding.

    Perfect excuse for buying it beyond the bitchin' neck, which is a thing of beauty; neck, headstock and fretboard all one slab of rosewood, and I think it's unfinished natural wood, however wood is not one of my "things", so take that observation with a grain of salt. ;)


    It feels phenomenal, not just texture, but kinda "worn in" comfortable as well.

    Yup. That’s exactly what got me gassing. It melted in my hand when I tried it out.

    I have a feeling these will sell out.
