    my '99 MIM Fender V is a very nice player! solid B-string and low, fast action. i had to take the Dremel to the HMB saddles and grind down the string grooves abit, but it was better than spending money!;)

  4. my '03 FSR Mexi Jazz bass..natural ash body. I put in a set of Custom Shop '60s pups and the thing absolutely sings, I love it to death. Beats out my stingray in terms of overall playtime at almost 1/3 its cost.

    Crazy nice woodgrain!

    Here's mine. Destined to become a fretless, although it plays great as-is.

    My pair of MIM 5 string Jazz basses. Both have 5-inline tuners and stock pickups. Strings - one has Chromes flats and one has Pressure wounds. Got'm off Craig's List for $280 (with nice Fender gig bag) and $300 (with hard shell case).
    They sound and play just fine.

    A couple of aftermarket mods, but underneath, she’s all MIM.

    A lot of little modifications, but the basis as an early nineties Mexi Jazz, from the one-piece pickguard years.


    I play the heck out of it.

    Pretty much. Would have never expected to get such a nice grain on my first ever Fender!

    I've never seen one of these before. I love that extra fret on the G. Can you post more pix of this?
