Own this for almost 2 years from now but never felt for replacing this one. Though sire is good option too to check out.
This is the best Jazz style bass one can get under 40000 rupees. It is as good as a MIM Fender Jazz Bass. The maple neck is smooth. Excellent fretwork. Pickups sound very good. Pictured here with my Sterling SUB Ray5 Bass Guitar.
This bass is the best for this price.
Hi, i own this guitar for almost 3 yrs now and this bass is a masterpiece.I have replaced the stock neck with a fire maple custom made fret board and neck to enchannce sustain and tone.Best buy for the price I am selling mine as i have bought another bass from usaAny one interested please email me . Selling it for 37k (spent 18 k for modifying it)
This is a well built bass (on the heavier side though).Tough yet sounds ambient and boomy,looks great and feels great in the hands as well. One of the better basses(if not hte best) for this money.
Features: My Vintage Modified Jazz Bass, purchased in 2012, was made in Indonesia in 2007. For a 5-year-old budget line bass, it was in excellent condition, no scratches, bumps or bangs to speak of. A hard case is on order, as the Fender jazz bass it was purchased as a back up to, had seen a hard life in a gig bag. The bass has a one-piece black-bound maple neck, with black block inlays, and the frets were in good order. The action was a bit high, and once lowered and intonated, was pretty close in height to my Fender. The neck has a satin finish, while my Fender has a gloss neck. Doesn't really effect playability, to my way of feel. I changed the roundwounds on the bass (GHS Bass Boomers) with some D'Addario Chromes and neither set sat properly in the nut slots at the D or G strings, so I widened the slots. The body is a three-piece maple, and is nicely figured, and you have to hold it in just the right light to tell it's three piece. They do a good job of matching the grains on their wood. The stock black pickguard was in good shape, but I still replaced it with a white pearl pickguard that was originally designed for the Fender American Standard Jazz Bass. This required a bit of fitting, as the Squier's control cover comes to a point in it's center and the Fender's is a soft round contour. Careful shaping and taking your time will make it look like a proper fit. The pickups are Duncan Designed pickups and I'm a big fan of Seymour Duncan products, and I use Quarter Pounders in my Jazz and my Yamaha. I can't tell you if these pickups are made in the same place as SD's, but what I can tell you is that the output is substantially more potent than the output of stock Fender (MIM) pickups. The tuners are standard Fender fair, as is the high-mass bridge. Overall, I expected this bass to be lighter than my Fender. It definitely was. By about a pound and a half. Overall, it's a good, nicely made bass, that looks pretty snazzy with an upgraded pickguard, regardless of w...
