    Tonight i was in the mall with my girlfriend and stopped by Willis Music (Chain Store that pretty much sucks). But today i saw a jazz bass that i was really impressed with. Its a fender special edition jazz bass with basslines and it sounded SWEET. i'm currently a warwick player and was blown away by this because its the last thing i was looking for but i really liked this axe. the variety in tones was awesome. I was wondering is anyone has any experience with this particular bass http://www.fender.com/products/search.php?partno=0264500552 if you have any feedback at all, thanks in advance!

    BTW, the price was about $550.

    I love mine. Those SD 1/4#ers are nice pups.

    Limited Edition? Not sure about that, regular production model I think. Or maybe it's an LE like a Geddy Sig. Limited until it becomes a top seller.

    On a Jazz bass binge at GC one day, the sales guy handed me everything and I liked the Marcus Miller and Geddy Lee sigs, then he handed me this thing, played and sounded like a dream. If it weren't for the abnormal controls (I CAN get used to, just love the classic Jazz look better) I could see myself buying one in the future.

    BTW, I couldn't believe it was Made in Indonesia, I believe.
  4. That's cool, just the bridge seems cheap to me....
    But if it sounds great, that's not a matter.
    We had a thread about this bass that told us everything about it, I'll do search and post the link.

    well i've already made another trip to the store and i'm about 90% on the purchase. just wondering what you guys thought about this bass being able to pull off a modern rock type sound. i mean i love the variation that i got out of it andi could definately get some good growl from it. i guess i'm just lookin for reassurance before i drop $550 on a guitar that i've never really considered owning before yesterday

    I'm fairly sure the Jazz Bass 24 is made in Korea. Nice bass. Completely not my style.
