NBD...

Post by DubnBass » Thu Aug 15, 2013 10:46 pm

Not yet! Tomorrow my brand new Fender USA Deluxe Jazz V will arrive from Connecticut.
Scored it off the Talkbass forum as a new item for NZD2150 shipped. Still has all the case candy (unopened) and film on the tuning heads & pick-guard.

I'll be itching to get home from work tomorrow that's for sure!

They sure are a turn-on :D
Thought it'd be delivered today but unfortunately not. Fingers crossed it's tomorrow!
No luckily I didn't get stung with import tax... Apparently if you ship with UPS or Fedex they check all packages, but with USPS they're picked at random!
Will update with a pic tomorrow...

That's heaven right there! Beautiful lookin bass, and what an awesome result wither the import duty - or lack thereof! It's awesome buying overseas/ online, just unbeatable prices, even with the duty sometimes. I've got a few things on the way, and the wait is almost painful! Nothing as awesome as that bass though!

No it certainly isn't! Had a good play last night after giving it a setup... Awesome fat, yet clear tone (especially on the low end of B) & the neck plays really nicely. Perfect balance between a good string spacing and a narrower neck (My Squier Deluxe V's neck is like a bit of 2x4 compared to this neck!). I was thinking of doing a review on here if anyone is interested in me doing so?

Will definitely keep the P (Squier CV 60s)! Great sound with SD 1/4-pounders & playability is really good.
Thanks, I love it!
