        Comments about Fender American Special Jazz Bass with Gig Bag:

        The bass didnt sound good at all, Samash told me to take it to a local shop to get re-stringed, i mean! I just dropped a thousand dollars in less than a week, and now i gotta drop a hundred dollars more? I tried to return it, since i dont have a SamAsh around me, all i got was a bunch of bull's you know what, complicating things just not to get it back! I'll never ,ever, buy anything here again, or recommend them for anybody. Nothing like stand by their product and take care of their customers!

          Comments about Fender American Special Jazz Bass with Gig Bag:

          I've been playing for thirty years (metal & hard rock). This is my first Jazz bass and I can't believe I waited so long. The slim C neck is my favorite part of this bass as well as the tones that this baby produces. I feel like I don't have to attack the strings and the mid tones are so clear and bright. The stock pickups are awesome. I plan to add the precision special to my arsenal soon. Very happy with this Bass.
