    Pretty. But I think it would look better if it had a clear or pearloid pickguard. The control plate looks lonely.

    That's a good-looking Jazz. But for $1900, it BETTER be good sounding and great playing, too.

    That blonde is a beauty. As opposed to "a Fender". I suppose.....

    its a standard jazz....now if it had some custom stuff on it ....then it would be worth sharing...the grain is pretty but it needs some thing (black burst would look nice)...I would look better if it had a rear control cavity and got rid of the ugly plate

    Hey,

    okay, ready to answer all the questions.

    Electronics:
    It are two Phantom Single-Coils (seem to be by Kent Armstrong or Seymour Duncan) with a Kurandt E.Q. Cutts through extremely with a hell of sustian and the growliest mids on the planet.

    Playability:
    GREAT ! The thinest, fastest neck I ever encountered. The action CAN be set extremely low, perfect for tapping and fast, funky stuff, on the G-String its enough to hold your finger on the string to get a good sound (without pressing).
    Also great for slapping with a slightly higher action. All in all, I would say in plays better then my Sadowsky 4er.

    You can get everything at Phantom. With / without Pickguard, rear routing, own neck specs, custom colors, maple tops..

    David
