      One of these beauties just arrived – some Covid-19 retail therapy. Dave knows me and knows I’m fussy. I took a leap of faith and bought this sight unseen relying only on the limited reviews, specs and Dave’s endorsement. All I can say is “Wow”. This will takes its place along side my boutique basses and feel right at home. If you’re in the market for Fender Jazz Professional – don’t do it. This bass is far superior in every way. I think it’s priced at about 50% of what it’s worth!

      I own this bass and without a doubt it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The play-ability is amazingly smooth and effortless. The tone is exactly how a J type bass should sound. This is quickly becoming my go to bass and I have some pretty high end boutique basses. I will give a more in depth review after I have this gorgeous bass for a few weeks or so. I do believe that I am the first person to purchase one of these basses.
