    Bourbon Street Jam Electric Bass - Black

    You know the sound. It is that bass sound with solid lows and bright mids and highs, that tend to pop to the front of the mix. It is favored by artists as diverse as Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Geddy Lee (Rush), Frank Bello (Anthrax), Mel Schacher (Grand Funk Railroad), Robbie Shakespeare (The Wailers), Jaco Pastorius (Weather Report), and Robert Trujillo (Metallica). Now you can get the same type of sound with this Bourbon Street Jam Electric Bass guitar from Monoprice!

    This bass guitar feature two single-coil pickups, which helps give it a brighter sound and makes it ideal for slap playing. It is constructed of basswood, with a bolt-on maple neck, and rosewood fretboard. The nut is 43mm wide. It features a separate volume control for each pickup and a single tone control, allowing you to balance the output of each pickup to produce the exact tone you want.

    The bass is fitted with medium strings (.045, .065, .080, .105) and has been professionally setup by Master Luthier Roger Gresco, so it is ready to play right out of the box. It comes with a 5mm sponge gig bag and a truss wrench.

    Pros: PRICE

    Cons: Needs setup work

    Well, you can't beat the price! Lots of minor setup issues, string buzz, etc. Finish is impeccable.

    Really happy with it

    Pros: sound - I found the tone of this bass to be simply excellent. I have taken it a few places and played it against MIM, and MIA jazzes and most everyone agrees they liked mine better. take that with a grain of salt. I feel I got truly lucky.
    fit and finish - It was what I expected out of the instrument. There are a few finish flaws. None of them worth complaining about. I was surprised to find that the neck and head we a single piece of maple. I find the bass a pleasure to play.

    Bridge - nice high mass bridge

    Cons: The tuners were pretty bad for me. While tuning up 2 of the pegs would pop and lose their tuning. I had to be really really gentle to get them to tune. They did not hold the tuning well.

    The strings were terrible. the would not hold a tune for more then a few minutes. I replaced them with some flats and I am really happy with the tone and play-ability now.

    Setup - the setup was not great. With a little adjustment I am pretty happy. not the lowest action but more then acceptable to me. Fret ends need some love, but I once again expected it for the cost.

    Bridge - the resting place for the string ball end is too small to get them to rest in the bridge. they are secure, but the ball end doesn't rest in the holder.

    Over all I am really happy with the instrument. I replaced the tuners and the strings. I expected to do both. I expected to also change out the pickups and am really surprised I do not feel that is at all needed. In fact I think if I did I would regret it. the bridge is more of a visual annoyance then anything functional with my con.

    If you are starting out or looking for something to toy with. I can think of a better starting point honestly.

    A great bass for the $$

    I needed a good 4 string to teach my students. My main bass is a Tobias 5 string... The Monoprice Jazz bass is higher in quality and with better pickups and lighter weight than the Mex Fenders that are 4x as much.....

    Solid

    Pros: Better than expected

    Cons: None*

    *Disclaimer:I am not a bass player but a professional keyboardist looking to try something new. I picked up Rocksmith 2014 along with a couple monoprice guitars and, more recently, this bass to get my feet wet.

    This is a solid piece of equipment. It has held its tuning with the original stings for the past two weeks and is a blast to play. The outer packaging arrived a bit dinged up but the contents were fine as they've packed this really well. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Cons: Fret buzz coming from E and G strings

    My band is having a 20 year reunion this summer and I thought it would be a good idea to purchase a new bass since my Fender Squire is coming up on 21 years old. I've been a customer of Monoprice for a very long time. I love most all of their products, especially the cables. I thought that I wanted to buy a really good bass but not expensive. This was going to be a one time concert and then I would use to bass at home to play on once in awhile.

    Let me get this out of the way: I love this bass. I love the design, how easy it is to play, and most importantly how it sounds*.

    * There is a massive fret buzz coming from the E string and the G string when I play certain notes. I haven't had to fix or maintain a bass in quite some time so I went to http://www.reddit.com/r/bass to get some assistance. I was told that I need to fix the truss, or check the fret height, or it could be the bridge/nut.

    Unfortunately, I haven't done this type of stuff in so long I don't know where to begin. There are several different walkthroughs and videos on the internet on how to fix each of those problems. However, I don't think I should have to fix them on a brand new bass that was supposedly set up by a luthier.

    Being packaged as good as it was, I don't think the shipping caused this problem.

    The certificate that was included with the bass said it was set up by a master luthier. How is that possible? The fret buzz is loud and ridiculous.

    It's a great bass, but I think I may have to return it due to this buzz problem. It's too bad, I love how it sounds and looks. Even the M logo doesn't bother me.
