Scale length/feel of the Dingwall Super J5
Given the fanned fret thing...this question may be kind of weird. Growing up, I loved the Fender Jazz basses. In the mid 80's I got a Factor. I love the feel/scale length of that bass...and it was my main axe till about 99 or so when I got a 76 J Bass. I dig the J but really like the feel and navigability of the Factor. It just fits my hand better.
Regarding the Dingwall Super J5, for those of thou who have or have tried, does this feel like a small scale bass, a regular/large scale bass (due to the fanning) or does it really depend on where you are/what string you are on?
With regards to my preference for the playability of my Factor...I'm sure some a good bit has to do with it's weight, as it is lighter than the J, which is pretty heavy, especially in the headstock. The Super J 5 sounds like it is pretty light over...which is good for me.
Sorry to be so lengthy.
My interest is in tone/s and playability. Was thinking of going with a Lakeland or the Super J. Guessing the Lakeland feels bigger/heavier? Any thoughts on the two options would be appreciated as well.
Contemplating ordering the J5 from Bass Central (unless anyone has a Black one for sale)....just a little nervous about how the fanned fret thing is in reality. Just about everyone seems to state that it's not a big deal.
