Exploring several options available I ordered the Fender and it turned out to be the best choice. Special thanks to my sales engineer Ed Nystrom .The bass is flawless and set up to play immediately. I Previously played an active FJB 5 years ago and truly enjoy these passive Custom Shop pickups more. Able to dial in sweet sounds quickly for any genre with a smooooth and maneuverable neck ! Fabulous value, light weight, and hard to put down.
