Squier Classic Vibe Jazz

I just got one of these. It definitely deserves its "bang for the buck" reputation. I was really surprised at the out-of-the-box setup. As good as any new bass I've ever had: nearly no relief yet no fret buzz. The pickups sound fine but are quite noisy, but I planned to swap them out anyway. But the real surprise was the quartersawn neck. I have no idea if this is standard or not. Maybe I just got lucky? The picture shows the back of the neck where it meets the body.

Links: Yanno, you live a very short time and then you spend a very long time dead so eat great food, love extra hard, hold on for the ride, and play some bass along the way.
