This has been my workhorse for 7 years now. I use the original pickup and see no need to change it. Blends well tonally in a standard blues setting with flatwound strings. Thomastik Jazz Flats sound excellent on this for soul and blues work. Highly recommended combination if you like low-tension strings.

It's got an extra wide neck so make sure that's what you're looking for. Probably best suited to someone with big hands. The neck feels very solid due to it's size and all the extra wood. The neck has been fairly sensitive to Scandinavian seasonal changes and needed a lot of truss rod adjustment during the first years, it's settled in more now and i s more stable.

The body is fairly resonant.

Down side is mostly practical isssues due to the retro design choices: truss rod is adjusted from the body side with a screwdriver. It can't be reached without removing the pickguard, and ideally one should remove the neck completely from the body to adjust it, but that's way too impractical. It can still be adjusted without removing the neck but expect minor finish damage (which is covered by the pickguard).

The finish has held up well with no visible signs of wear yet despite a lot of use.

Standard 13 hole fender pickguards will fit, however a couple of new holes needs to be drilled even if you don't use all 13 screws.

Craftsmanship on my 2006 model was excellent with no complaints. Much better build quality than standard mexican made models I've tried from the same time.

The reverse tuners are another vintage-correct but slightly annoying feature (turns in the opposite direction from standard).

Overall an excellent bass.

Probably the best Mexican series

The Mexican classics are the best made fenders outside of the US made lines. The fit and finish on this is as good as my American standard jazz! As for the sound, it sounds like a pbass ?... Which I'd imagine is what you want if your reading this.
