For the first time in 8 years, Fender has changed the USA Fender basses, both J + P models.
In the latest issue of Bass Guitar Magazine reviewed both the Percision and the Jazz models, giving the Jazz 4 stars and the Percision 3 stars, the P getting lower marks for the £1050 price tag...

i like the new jazz basses better but the P has a slightly slimmer neck and i like my P basses to have the traditional baseball bat like neck.

£1050?! Are you serious?

Andertons have them for £770.

Are you sure that wasn't list price and not street price? I know Bass Player says what list price is and then what you could expect to pay in a store as well. I'm not sure if Bass Guitar does that too.

It dosn't state what kind of price it is, just gives the price.

but don't forget thats a british magazine and they pay alot more than what we play in the western hemisphere. however; i do believe that the exorbitantly high price was just a list price

I hope to god so. At GC, when I got my MIA Jazz (last of the 07's, not a new 08), list price was ~$1300 (~660 pounds?), and I got it for $950 (~490 pounds, I think). The American Standard series shouldn't be much more expensive in stores.
