High End Jazz Bass
After spending a lot of time and money on basses, i think it's time to take the right direction.
I want to buy THE Jazz Bass that will fits my needs.
But i don't know which one to choose. So i need your help.
Here is my specifications:
- light Alder body, rosewood fb with pearl block inlays
- 60s pickup position
- 10 or 12 radius
- medium size frets, not small vintage
- active/passive with a true passive tone control and 2 band EQ
- single coil pickups
- a sound between vintage and modern, round, clear and growly. Not mids shy.
- a perfect neck with a possible incredibly low action
- classic JB look
- $2500 max, new or used
War mouth and a good luthier to put it together
Ditto on Warmoth.
Used Lakland DJ
Lakland DJ have small frets and i don't like that (i owned one).
Does a Sadowsky RV4 can be a good choice?
I was just assuming the DJ has the same size frets as a JO, and those aren't vintage size.
So...used Lakland JO w/ your choice of preamp. :)
Sadowsky definitely makes a nice bass too.
But i think Lakland JO have Ash body and vintage frets, I'm not sure...
Fender Road worn jazz body, Wamoth neck Rosewood on Maple, Lindy Frali Jazz pickups
Badass II bridge
The new Fender American Deluxe's are awesome. Or a Sadowsky Metro.
there's a ton of options out there. especially if you're willing to buy used.
A used alder/rosewood/'60s position Fbass VF5 should be within your budget. Check the classifieds here on TB, or ping Donovan at Fretspot. Three band EQ, active/passive, and a passive tone control.
I own one like that, and another that's ash/maple/'70s position. They're excellent basses.
Except for being '70s position, a Carvin SB5000 fits the bill, too--and they go for very attractive prices used. Check the review in a recent issue of Bass Gear.
Thanks everybody for your replies
For now my choice is a Sadowsky Metro RV4 or MV4, but I have to try one not far away from me.
Do it once and you'll get it right! New or used Sadowsky. Done
Sadowsky Metro Will Lee Sig.
Marco Cortez! Great builder
Low End Jazz Bass
Best kept secret in the industry! Please don't over look this bass, as I bought my first LEJ on ebay for 1,800.00
