Fender Jazz Bass MIM MZ102 Reviews
I have played guitar and Bass for 30 years. I play Jazz, Blues, and Gospel. Currently I play for personal pleasure but keep my chops up for gigs which do come up quite often. I also play a J6 Montgomery Jazz box. MIM 1991.
I have played many basses and 6 string guitars over the years. I played bass for a year with the drummer(Luigi Waitts)from the Ella Fitzgearld band so I do have some experience. I swear, the MIMs are every bit as good as the USA built models as far as I can feel and hear. Some from both places have good and bad turnouts. Sure a pickup change could help, so will a careful amp setup. I doubt most folks can tell weather US mexicans or Mexico mexicans build an instrument. After all, mexicans build them in both places with the same materials! Viva Amigos!! The only difference is the wage per hour. I always suggest a person actually go to a store and play a few instruments then make an informed decision. Don't let name brands or location of finishing determine your purchase. After all, Even Harley Davidson uses Japaneese shocks, I know, I own one of them too.Greg D rated this unit on 2006-04-14.
