Well, our band is planning to start playing again later in June. I swapped to bass and had a decent Ibanez but really I needed a Fender. Found this 6 year old Players Jazz Bass and got it for $450. The story-The guys girlfriend bought it for him and it promptly went into a closet. It is as new. The only issue was the neck. It was bowed and at first I couldn't tighten it. It kept spinning. Just as I became concerned it tightened up perfectly and brought the neck into spec. I'll through some new strings on it, but am so pleased with it. Makes want to never buy new again!
