...I played one today that was pretty amazing. I have a very nice 3-tone sunburst NOS 2015 Fender American Standard Jazz bass that I scored for a great price from a Guitar Center halfway across the country. It was one of the few new American Standards that they have left in their system. They supposedly found it in their warehouse a couple months ago after selling what they thought was the last American Standard they had in their inventory, but discovered they were wrong, and only very recently put it out on the racks, meaning it's been sitting, virtually unmolested in the box. It's a beautiful bass (from the photos they sent me, really light at 8.5lbs, and told it plays like a dream, had a nice, fairly dark piece of rosewood for the fretboard, but won't know until it gets here tomorrow when it's delivered. Today Played a new Fender American Pro Jazz bass at my local Guitar Center and was blown away by it. Super light, even off the rack and with a bit too much relief in the neck and slightly high action it felt great and played like butter. The entire bass literally would vibrate no matter what string you played, and was just something I advent experienced with a bass before. But, I'm not really into the boring black body with mint guard and bland/pale maple neck & fretboard. With all that said though, I'm half tempted to plop down the difference for the American Pro if the NOS American Standard doesn't work out (but fingers crossed that is THE one.) The 3-tone sunburst with a rosewood board is pretty much my favorite look, and for me, doesn't get any classier than that and is just the look that makes me want to pick up the bass every moment I get a chance to. Even though the black American Pro I played today was one of the nicest I ever played, I feel like it would be lame not to pass it up just because it's not the color I really want, but it just looks boring as heck to my eye. First world problems, right?
