Laumiles's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Classic '60s Jazz Bass
This bass is manufactured in Mexico, which explains prix.Elle are 20 boxes, like any self-respecting jazz bass.
The bridge is a classic that I changed for a badass bass II.

USE

It is a little heavier than the 60s jazz bass, the very agrable.Il handle may miss some serious with low amp.

SONORITS

The jazz bass in my opinion is made for all kinds of music she roundness in its sonority but also the attack.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I have this bass for almost two years now I turn with and in any situation is the height. it is a true marvel, both on the violin as the son.Elle well worth better than amricaine jazz bass at the time, and the difference in price absolutely justifie.Je speaks knowingly because I set the time to choose my bass.

Fender Classic '60s Jazz Bass
MIM Fender Jazz bass classic 60's.
The 60's classic includes the standard characteristics of JB, only micro standads remplcs by vintage microphones different.
Some characteristics:
Channel maple, rosewood fingerboard 20 fret vintage JJ pickups, passive electro, volume knob handle / bridge + Tone

USE

very good balance, very pleasant handle, access to acute rather limited. Once the well rgl handle (which is rare on models Mexico from the factory), it is a joy. The bottom radius (stick bomb) really gives a set of comfort fingers. For slap, comfort is also low, but the radius prevents having an ultra-low action (unless you go at the luthier who ca rgle the hair for a euro 40ene. The bass in it same is robust, we feel that it resists all. The mechanical moving no 1mm.
In short it is really good cam.
I dconseil to buy Mex version via the websites because of the approximate rglage prod, it's a bit of a lottery. So either Cygnus through a good bass player who has rgl is 40/50 prvoir passage in the luthier.


SONORITS

Wahoui. One does. Slap slamming funk, reggae growwwwly, jazzy. This is the low-pass everywhere. no wonder that the greatest bass players will be directed to the JB-like, it's a joy. The bass is very deep (vacuum Mi is a rgale) the acute sound good without being criar. There's a bump (in volume) in the middle of the handle. It can be an advantage as a incinvnient. I like to play reggae on this handle part because we win one round. .dropoff Window Once again, intonation is parfouis jr rgl in sortyie factory for prod Southwestern. So I repeats, Cygnus is in a good bass player in a shop or 40/50 luthier.

NOTICE GLOBAL

It's been 6 years since I use it and I did it all live. It presents in almost all styles (I wrong in Mtal on the other hand). I tried many other bass in the JB-like style, none happens to the ankle. The one in the same range taken that could compete with it is the Cort GB74. .dropoff Window Qualitprix the report could not be p ^ comptitif read. The price is divided by a US l2 having all positive.

Bassbaze's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Classic '60s Jazz Bass
Made in Mexico. For CHARACTERISTICS see on the site fender. Bridge home of shit (I palm one of the screws of the bridge in concert ...). So change easel specifically recommended. For me, the classic "Badass II".
Rglages could not be more stupid. I took me a while to put the jazz bass. I am now a fan ... 7 for the bridge and for mcaniques vintage (they turn "upside down") to approximate rglage (I also have a music man and Noguera, this explains that. ..).

UTILIZATION

As the house. All dpend your desires and your needs ...

SOUNDS

It should all styles of music. Played on a EBS Drome 15 ". Passive, of course, but even in the slap, it can compete with many other active basses, same branches of 220 V. .. Trs trs good sound. My main bass ct of my stingray and my Noguera. Trs beautiful grave. Aigue slamming. mdiums Of if you want some. She snores well in the bass, sang in the treble, as j love it. I play jazz funk. It is perfect for a. ..

OVERALL OPINION

After a few "upgrades" that I mentioned is really the lowest I'm looking now for almost 15 years of practice. Also an advantage: you will not ruin you ... In my opinion much better than the new classic jazz bass made in United States. Trs versatile, its deep. I love it all ... the Try!

Fender Classic '60s Jazz Bass
Price 900 euros. Made in Mexico, 20 frets "vintage", jazz bass pickups, I do not know where exactly, easel and a standard volume 2 tone, stick a little thinner than the models of modern and covered with a super gloss in jaunâtre.Touche rosewood, very fine. 3 tone sunburst finish (the only really beautiful Fender I think), the body not specified in a wood, alder I think. Plate tortoise. Some finish flaws serious enough for its price:
A junction body / sleeve has a set of at least 1 millimeter, it changes nothing in his grip and but it's not very neat about a beautiful instrument.

The two cavity microwave also has a keen game of a millimeter, which reveals the wiring (still somewhat neglected ...)

The junction of three pickguard and knobs of the plate is not clear.

These are the only critical issue Paske the rest is really perfect.

UTILIZATION

The handle, from my point of view, is really perfect: the first contact is very easy it can be done directly. The gloss is soft and does not bother to make a slip or other. Access to acute is specific to this type of instrument: not perfect but not bad either, and as the handle is ery end, no problem. It still weighs a lot, you can feel after a few hours, but you get used to. For the settings easy! 2 volumes and a tone not need to beat around the bush just the right sound live: a big sound very full, with crystalline highs, parfait.Je put 8 because I've already tried a J Bass Deluxe US (too expensive!) And a deluxe Mexico (Active). A flat, the pots are not of high quality and not always fixed a few turns of the key enough to fix it, is also a mass problrme I bientôt.Ca that such adjustments made two years that I have and I do not regret not this purchase

SOUNDS

I play mostly rock very rough and I think it was just that: simple but effective. To play vintage rock (hendrix stones Who) is really the ideal, and for the grooves to Pastorius. on the other hand to play slap stuff like Red Hot c is harder, but set the amp gives a good result. I play with a SWR LA 15 stroke that almost all the sounds I want. In rehearsal I play with a 160-watt laney hardcore that there is in the local, c amp is a fairly straight forward, but the couple hardcore jazz bass works really well. I think the mieu lice get a good sound is to combine the two microphones and adjust the tone depending on the desired. For dry grooves, micro acute than enough. Y really no sound that I find wrong with this bass

OVERALL OPINION

J loves rock, old and full of modern and other styles of zic (groove, funk) and I'm really happy with the sound, feeling and an inimitable class. She is really perfect, except for a few flaws mentioned above, which are not very serious. I'm starting to think about changing the pickups to improve this marvel. I recommend it to all rock fans who want something simple, solid, classy looking and the big sound!!
