great concept

  • Summary: overall a nice bass,but the neck and truss rod leaves one wondering if the bass is worth it.I tried to adjust the neck and the truss was hard to turn and when it did,it wouldnt all the way.I had a bad bow in the neck and the truss rod didnt relieve it at full turn.Fender should addresse this problem and take heed,they should make a neck like the road worn jazz Imho has the bass neck of all the fender jazz basses.
  • Pros: Good Tone
  • Cons: Neck is the main culprit

Reggie Hamilton Jazz Bass

Matt Frampton, music123

  • Summary: The Reggie Bass is pretty much everything I would want Fender to build me for MY Signature Bass. It has a Drop-D tuner on the "E", USA P-Bass AND USA Noiseless Jazz pick ups. The neck is a very comfortable Jazz neck with really cool aging toner that gives it a great look. The PASSIVE/ACTIVE circuit is outstanding and makes this one of the most versatile basses I have played in a long time. This bass does it all: Solid P-Bass ROCK! to funky J-Bass POP!

Fender standard jazz!

  • Summary: I recieved this bass around 6 months ago, and for the price i am really impressed with the standard. I paid £220 (brand new condition with protective plastic and tags still intact) which to me is a bargain compared to the £440 retail price! Starting off with the sound, this bass is very versatile. When (if) you get this bass make sure you sit down and have a play with the control knobs as you will see the number of different sounds you can get out of it.
  • Pros: Very versatile, excellent quality
  • Cons: More expensive than the standard precision

Leo Fender also designed one of the most, if not the first, commercially successful solid-body electric bass, which is now standard in rock, jazz, country, funk, and all other types of popular music. Fender also make acoustic guitars, mandolins, banjos, and violins, as well as amplifiers and PA equipment.

A very different kind of old smoothy

  • Summary: Last weekend I finally realised an old ambition. It happened by chance, and it cost me a fortune, but it just had to be done! Get yourself comfortable and I’ll explain… Many years ago, I played in a band in Edinburgh. We were keen, but crap, frankly, and the best we could do in the way of gigs was a Sunday night residency at a small hotel, in the days when only hotel bars were allowed to open on Sundays – pubs were shut.
  • Pros: I alwys wanted one, and it's lovely
  • Cons: It cost me a bucketload of money

Funky Bass Guitar

  • Summary: This is the Fender bass that I own and swear by. It cost me £370 last month and it is to replace my battered Marlin Bass that is 11 years old. The reason i bought it is because im limited to what I can have. Im left handed so my choice in Basses is limited as they dont make all models. I wanted the slightly cheaper Precision bass but they dont make it in Left hand. I had to opt for the Jazz bass. Im glad I did as it has more flexibility in sound than the precision.
  • Pros: Better options of sound
  • Cons: none
