    The finish is really good. Say nothing of the ct's almost better than the best in Asia. The Vintage White, kind of milky white crme a little and not too blaffard is enjoyable and relatively unobtrusive.

    For specs, we are in the known architecture seen and reviewed, it's a Jazz Bass.
    We therefore clbre Maple Neck (neck Saddle) C Fender expensive, here with a rosewood fingerboard. The handle is remarkably finished, semi-gloss varnish is slippery, no asprit. The key size is in a beautiful rosewood and enjoyable to touch the hoop is perfect. 21 boxes of happiness! Included are the "dot inlays" everything is classic white. No cheap pearl or abalone ostentatious.

    The bridge is a "vintage" four bridges chrom ordinary 'travel and refinement without the mcaniques are of the same type: open, closed and prcises. It is better than the oil bath at a discount and provided they are reliable (which is the case) there is no reason to want it dfaire in the moment.

    The alder body (two spices) is finished. The varnish is plutt classy, ​​a bit "old school" and be done all the style of the instrument. I admit I hsit because of the color, usually I do not like white. But in fact this color crme (white is the most beautiful effect, far from flashy Alpine White Arctic White or too cold. The pickguard is nice, a good plastic finish "tortoise shell" (quail turtle) is Russia and fits well with the rest of the instrument.

    The electronic active complte:
    - Volume
    - Low
    - Medium
    - Acute
    - Balance of two microphones

    The two "pickups" are JB fairly standard, except that on my copy of 2004 that are not Vintage Noiseless as now. They do not have two blocks but only one per string. I can not tell you more about them, but sends the woods and no breath.

    I was lucky to acqurir this bass used, in a PERFECT state, and admirably RULES. A big thank you to the passage fredjaffred friend!


    UTILIZATION

    The handle is just a highway!
    Of all the basses I have since my p beginners, this JB Mex is the most enjoyable to play. Profile "Modern C" is daunting. The precision of the strips and exemplary and is a total of CONTRL.

    This stings a little lower the nose. An easy remedy default: play up!
    I bought a few hours ago and I have not been lch. This is a really good instrument, srieux and enjoyable. Those that are kept as the first instrument that is complte and various other more anecdotal. JB active with this we have the solution to the problem of basis for any bass player is THE classical and rock bass.
    Those with Precision are right to say the same thing under each.

    Ergonomics has become legendary, even when it is the second lowest in history, just a.

    And get "good sound" is not suffering: we get lots of good sounds.

    SOUNDS

    - Appropriate are your style of music?
    Arf, yes. They agree my style without any problem.

    - With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    For now it's "config studio": prampli Mindprint DI Custom, Simu Line6
    Word, a question has enchanted the gills.
    Until recently, it will be accompanied by a Trace Elliot combo.

    - What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
    Lens, yes and no. I had a Dean who had acute B5 thinner, sharper.
    The highs are sweet trs, even if they are less indented than a Precision.
    It's a warm and mallable with the blend and 3 eq, never aggressive, never extreme. JB This is not the finest of all but is really good balance.

    The sound "fat" is not as high-sounding than the PB (normal, these two are complementary low) but is still a great power trs.

    - What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
    I must say that "all midi" the sound is fantastic. In the fingers, it will be well suited to a modern walking sauce (without being garish) and agree to the slap. That same well of a del: everything in the middle is an invitation to play all games! If a is not a low trs CHARACTERISTICS a good balance!

    Pushing rglages in extreme (boost or scoop) the sound is never violent, never dsagrable and gives a lot of fun ides lines. This low inspires me!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a few hours and asked me a terrible question, but why on earth do I do now?

    This is my onzime low, it comes very timely APRS nice 4 or 5 strings. In the club we note a former Warwick Fortress Flashback, a Dean B5, a Tobias Toby Pro4, a California PM5Custom Sandberg, Yamaha, Ibanez and ... good, at least good, excellent. If I had any on hand now and I had to keep that would have no doubt the JB. I do not have to tell you intrt salads, this opinion is intended to enlighten your lantern while I do it with honntet.

    EXTRAS:
    - The handle, a DLIC, a highway, it is played without fatigue
    - Sound, standard, full, bright and prcis
    - The price: 500 euros for such a good coffee is extra nickel State
    - Finishing, well above the horrors I read about the Mexican p

    Cons:
    - The lightweight dsquilibre of the head
    - The wrong of reputable Mexican
    - The battery compartment, and not screwed clippbr />
    Used is what I had better report qualitprix.

    It does not sound as can be the Jazz Bass from 1965 or any other myth, but at least it is findable and the prices still reasonable. I'm not a purist, a intgriste of vintage, a abherrant seems to me that we prfre old shovels.

    A luthier friend once told me, laughing (but silent about srieux) "there is nothing simpler than a Fender, the recipe is archi-known and basic, and given the lack of refinement, the price is prohibitive and unjustified. He was right, and that JB Mex is an example. The Jazz Bass instruments are basic design "Exceeds" Active Deluxe is just a discount level with the prampli and modern microphones. It's one thing to remember, the wood is a bit of good quality reliable components and not too complicated to compare it with a Fodera taking over the marquetry as the violin is an irrelevant unforgivable.

    It is the classic that it is good to have with you, that JB is a less coteuse his groin made in United States.

    Find one you like, made it rgler with onions and play. If a does not always please you have the right to think that the instrument does not suit you. But before an instrument as simple and efficient, is often the bass player who does not know how.

    Small Basic soundclip trs ( http://linn134.free.fr/ob/fjbdm.mp3 ) to get an ide. Trs little retouch no effects from a rverb fine. Many uses strings for his roots!

    EDIT: I just show him new spaghetti, D'Addario 45/100 (ie mid-light).
    The sound is more IMMEDIATE prcis and attacks have taken a different scale. APRS three days, new strings are in place but I prciser that even at 10 minutes no problem Premire tuning has occurred. These strings are more neuvent enhance the capabilities of pramp and blend. It's absolutely exquisite.

    The ct mtallique dlivr by D'Addario is still tolrable, it does not fall into the cliché of the "fusion" or "modern groove" of Bootsy. I admit even when the grain prfrer strings that have a long way: the growl fat groove is very big Bonnard.

    Trs basic small soundclip with new ropes ( http://linn134.free.fr/ob/fjbdm2.mp3 )

    The BMOL the case of change of strings:
    Despite the change of the same string (pulling and rglage), some notes are "almost wrong". APRS a Checker accuracy with harmonics, nothing is wrong. It may be that my ear is too accustomed to the sound of old strings and resent the brilliance of news, but a turn in the luthier will prevail ... at least for the replacement of the bridge! (BADASS II in order).

    Fender deluxe jazz bass mexico, 1998 Best violin as standard jazz bass mexico

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very nice.

    SOUNDS

    Good bass for jazz, rock, blues. Versatile. Ideal as a complement to precision. Remains the small lack of "warmth". It is an active bass.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Fender jazz bass sound.

    For a price "equal", you may have, on occasion, a jazz bass made in japan much better with microphones usa.

    I do not do it again this election.
