Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreRed Deer, Alberta
I played in my first garage band at the age of twelve. Like most bass players I took up the instrument because nobody else in the band would. I am now nearly sixty, and I've had a love affair with the bass going on five decades. My first bass was a used '76 Gibson G-3 which I still have. I also own a Fender MIM P-Bass, MIM fretless Jazz Bass, Peavy Grind and even an Upright.

This 75th Anniversary Jazz Bass is special. The thing I've come to appreciate over the years about any bass are the placement of the strings through the body. This gives you more sustain, and you can feel the notes vibrating through the body all the way up the neck into your fingering hand. I have never felt the notes the way I do in this 75th Anniversary bass. They just seem to resonate forever. Add that to the punch from the Custom Shop pickups and well you are close to having a religious experience. I also prefer and love the slim satin neck of this bass over the meatier necks of my P Bass and my Gibson, but then those guys have got their special voices too, and will still get their play time in.

I know there is always a debate about price and quality between Mexican made versus American made. My Mexican P Bass has spent a lot of time on stage with me, and I love it. I've also played other Mexican and American guitars that I haven't loved. Sometimes I wonder if the difference is just that one guitar was made with love on a Monday, and the other was slapped together on a Friday before going out for a beer.

What I do know is that the 75th Anniversary Jazz Bass that I spent a lot of time playing in the Red Deer store was definetly built with love on a Monday. It was pricey to be sure, but five years from now when it's in my hands and I'm grooving in that special sonic zone; it isn't going to matter.

In closing a special thank you to Becky at the Red Deer store for ordering it in for me, and then letting me play the heck out of it before I bought it.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
