I'd be a bit miffed to buy a signature series that isn't built like, and will sound absolutely nothing like, the artists actual bass. Fair enough though, I've played a few original stack knobs and even good CS ones can't replicate that old tone, so at least this one is affordable and in reach of more fans, that's very cool.
I like it, but I think I'll stick to my US Jazz and Modulus Flea, it does exactly what it says on the tin and instantly has 'that' sound.

Custom colour, relic, tort plate, stacked pots....well done fender! If it had lollipop tuners which I am obsessed with, it would be perfect for me, but that is easily remedied.
I know the quality of the road worn instruments so this should be great. Off topic slightly, my friend had a RW strat and had it set up and some new pickups put in it (fender vintage reissue jobbies) and he swears it is better than his two CS strats now, much to his dismay.

I suppose it took them 10 years to release this one, so maybe the mm/jazz will be out it 2026?!

It does occur to me that it would be a hell of a lot quicker and far less expensive to just get one made by someone other than Fender!

My RW is stunning and leagues better than the US and Japanese Fenders i own, I'm also a sucker for shell pink and stacked pots. I'm a happy boy

It also dies my have a sticker on it!!
That said it's quite nice - it'd be even nicer with the covers and clay dots.

It's a good thing I never buy new... but i'll defo be getting one in a few years. I guarantee!

As with the Nate Mendal bass, it is MEANT to look relic'd. It is a modern reproduction of that artist's bass. I like it.

If the stacked pot thing is the selling point, surely you could just get any jazz and stick a new stacked pot loom in?

Seriously though, if it's the Jazz equivalent of my RW P Bass then Fender are onto a winner. I think I'd rather have the fiesta red/tort/rosewood VVT version though - just to match my P.
