    Yesterday (Friday) I went to Steve's (I am in Toronto) to see the price for the MM Sterling, than I gave a look in the lefties basses and I see something that wasnt there before...a Fender American Deluxe Jazz!!! So I tried, love the tone, the SCN pups, the rolled edges and the montego colour and the most important...the neck shape!! Very fast, comfortable and slick but without the emptyness feel I got from Ibanez necks!

    So i brought and I am more than happy with it!! It balances really well, the bridge is not massive but very well made. The only complain is that the heel is not sculpted as Fender claims (the plate that is sculpted :eyebrow: ) but I have no problem in reach the 22nd fret.

    By the way, I want to thank Nigel from Steve's for being so nice with me and the true bargain that was the price. Fender and Bill Lawrence really hitted the spot with those SCN pups.

    may I be the first to get in a 'your bass is backwards LOL' joke

    :eyebrow: :D

    I am a very proud southpaw!!!

    by the way, what i paid here for a American Deluxe would be the same that i would pay for a MIM in Brazil

    Great looking bass!! Congratulations. Also nice that you actually got good service from Steve's. Their Montreal
    guitar shop service is non existent....bunch of posers!

    Enjoy!
