A Modern Classic
I am in love with my new Jazz bass. I can't get over the ultra-high quality of the materials and craftsmanship. The fit & finish is world class. It's quite simply a beautiful modern rendition of Fender's now classic Jazz bass.
The tone of the Custom Shop pickups is stellar. Best set of jazz p'ups that I've ever heard. I can't rave about them enough, and will never change them.
The neck is a work of art. The rosewood fretboard is top quality. Plays like a dream. The set-up was perfect right out of the case. Nice clean action - just the way I like it. Intonation is on the money.
I am so glad that I stepped up and went with the American Standard. It is sooooo worth it, and the case is TSA approved and damn near bullet-proof. This bass easily compares to $4-5,000 G&L's and Laklands. It's a choice that I will never regret. Indeed I will smile with joy every time play it. :)
