A bass that quickly became my favourite

Tamas, 28.11.2017
As soon as Fender came out with this bass, a faithful replica of Flea's '61 shell pink Jazz Bass with roadworn finish, it jumped right on the top of my wishlist.
I ordered it from Thomann about 8 months ago and it has been my main bass since. I use it for rock and funk mainly, but it is just as versatile as any Jazz Bass.


The Pros:
- The build quality is great. Although this bass is made in Mexico, its quality is on par with American made instruments.
- The Fender Jazz Bass sounds. Want a growly tone? Or rather a Jaco-like low-passed bridge pickup tone? This bass has them all, with incredible sustain.
- The neck is super comfortable and really fast.
- The finish. Pictures don't make justice here, but in live the road worn look is totally convincing, in my opinion. Even the tuning gears has an oily wash on them. If this is your thing, you will love the looks of this bass. By the way, the shell pink color is not a bright, vibrant pink, but a faded, tastful one. This JB is a true beauty.


The Cons:
- The electronics inside have virtually no shielding, and as a result it is prone to picking up quite some noise. Sure, this is the replica of a '61 model, and basses back then didn't really use any shielding, so this bass doesn't have it either. Nothing that can't be fixed, but still, this is a major disadvantage.
- This is not related directly to the bass, but the gigbag that comes with it is pretty "meh". I don't have the feeling that it would adequately protect the instrument, so I have been using a Thomann gigbag instead which is much sturdier and has more pockets.


Great bass overall, and considering that this is a signature series bass, the pricing is really nice too.

The other jazz bass

Albrecht, 28.07.2016
Finally an affordable "Stack Knob" jazz bass from Fender. So far one had to rely on the originals (which of course you can not get or pay) or expensive US Custom Shop models. This one made here in Mexico
Bass is a replica of the 1961 Fender Jazz Bass from the Red Hot Chili Peppers Bassist Flea. The nitro-based paint has been applied in a tasteful and rare "Shell Pink". The entire scrapes and abrasions, as well as the wear on the hardware, are convincingly reproduced. Only the bridge you could have a few "roadworn" swabs. Probably, however, one has renounced this in favor of functionality. The next special feature is the electronics used in the Jazz Bass since its launch in 1960 - 1962. At that time two Tandempotis were used. This allows you to control each pickup independently in volume and tone. This version has not prevailed, and we soon went over to the present vol., Vol., Tone solution. Great is also that the instrument has two US 64 Pure Vintage pickup has given. Apart from that, the playability is as pleasant and light as you would expect from a jazz bass. But the sound is a little different from the electronics. Sure, you get the classic jazz bass sounds. Only overall with more "Twang". I think it is because the tone control is controlled with 500 kOhm Potis (the lower part of the tandem). Usually 250 kOhm Potis. Plectrum sounds are also particularly convincing. Also nice, that one with this sound control also has a more regular possibilities.Mir personally like this regulation better. For those who want to know very well: The wiring is the variant without the 220 k resistances at the volume regulators. Overall, I find the sound quality in this price segment surprisingly above average. Here, really high-quality wood has to be used. The bass came well adjusted with a usable Gigbag with me. The final control could nevertheless be a little more conscientious. For example, the neck mounting screws were somewhat loose: o and in the pickup wiring the middle pickup was interchanged with the bridge pickup. No matter if Flea Fan or not (the signature is, by the way, very discreetly on the neck plate), this bass should definitely be tested. For me this jazz bass is a really great instrument at an incredible price.
