Fender American Special Jazz Bass - Candy Apple Red Reviews

5.0 stars based on 4 customer reviews

    I told u already


    I have fenders, gibsons, vintage and new. This young lady quickly became my main squeeze. The neck is perfect, feels like it belongs in your hand, slim and smooth, frets and board edges feel custom. Pickups are fairly hot, controls range from sweet jazz bass to super sweet jazz bass, and that's a good thing. If you can't play it with this, what are you trying to play??? May swap out the tuners in a decade or so, but they'll do till then. Its light, quick and red. Don't buy one, more for me.

    The instrument was exactly as described. The staff answered all my questions. I couldn't ask for a better experience.

    A Bass You Wont Want to Put Down

    This Bass Replaces the Highway One with a Vengeance!
    In the Guitar Room at Sweetwater I was able to dial in a honking bridge pickup Jaco tone, a sweet neck pickup Motown tone, and a thumping dual pickup Jazz/ Precision tone with just a turn of a dial!
    And this was through a small amp!
    The greasebucket tone knob made all the difference by keeping the bottom pure while rolling off the highs.
    it keeps the low there when you want to honk it without bloat or breakup.
    The maple neck is slimmer then the American Standard and much more Playable, it just feels great in your hands.
    And the color? Candy apple sparkle like a customshop color.
    This Bass Blows the MIM's Blacktops, Modern Players, and Geddys away, hands down
    Its $300 less than a American standard and Plays better.
    I recorded with it tonight and it sits in the mix beautifully.
    Own it and start owning today!

    Ordering from Sweetwater was Sweet!

    What can I say. Ordered my J bass online on a Sunday, 3 days later it was delivered to my front door. Doesn't get any better than that.
