    Comments about Fender Reggie Hamilton Standard Jazz Bass:

    This may be the worst purchase I've ever made. I. Really don't know how Fender can put out such garbage and stay in business. The neck cannot be adjusted because the truss rod was installed incorrectly. Seriously, [$] for this? Incredible. Stay away!!!

      Comments about Fender Reggie Hamilton Standard Jazz Bass:

      This bass may look like a standard Fender,but it has been hot-rodded where it counts.
      I bought this bass 1 1/2 years ago and have feel in love with it.It has a real P bass pickup in the neck and a noiseless J bass pickup in the bridge.The active electronics are not harsh or hyped:They are always "musical".The controls are very well laid out and easy to use.(18V power)
      I did not think I would use the Hipshot drop tuner
      when I bought it:Boy,I was wrong!It is so cool to flip the lever and go to drop D!Flip the lever back up and you are in tune in E.
      The overall build quality is very good.It feels just like everybody's favorite Fender Jazz.This is one of the best basses Fender has came out with
      in years!
