Jazz Bass

What's the difference between a Fender Mexican Jazz bass and American?

I just started playing bass for my band and am looking for a bass I was wondering what the difference's between the mexican jazz bass and american jazz bass are other than the price tag. I want to buy the mexican just because its a hell of alot cheaper.

Big difference. I worked at Fender and the wood yard have different categories of wood which had aged over the years. The American model use top notch wood to start with. The WORKMANSHIP in the Mexican factory is far from having the same workmanship in the U.S. plant.

The hardware is not the same and neither are the pickups, the wiring itself (mexican bass tend to hum like crazy) etc.. The shielding also plays a major role in the cavity. One last thing. The neck finishing is sloppy on mexican models and if you play them, you will notice the rough edge or some frets are badly polished.

You get what you pay for. Also, the wood used in the REAL DEAL will continue to age over time meaning, that the sound will improve. On Mexican models, the sound never improves.
