Overall Impression — 10
Overall, the guitar can fit all styles of music. I've been playing bass for 3 years and I this is the best bass I've had yet. Although it took me a long time to decide between Precision and Jazz, I think that the general sound of it fit into the style I played like a glove.
Reliability & Durability — 10
The guitar can withstand live playing easily. Every year, I would recommend a change in pick ups and strings. I could bring only one of these to a jam session or gig without a back up.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The action of the guitar was well done. I had standard jazz vintage pickups. I made sure it was bookmatched top and that there were not any flaws with it before buying it.
Features — 8
I bought this bass at a reasonable price w/hard case. The Standard Jazz Bass was made in Mexico (21 frets). The thin maple neck makes it easy for my fingers to run my way through the frets. There are also 3 control knobs for tone and volume. The color of it was 3 tone sunburst and 3 ply white pickguard.
