(searched) Quick Funk Machine / '62 Precision question
Does a '62 P-bass have "backwards" spinning tuning machines? Did Jamerson really have to turn his tuning keys backwards to tune up for all those hits?
I bought a '51 CIJ Re-Issue and pulled the tuners because I couldn't stand them, but thinking of using them on my Funk Machine "tribute" if the above is true.
Also, if you're bored and can tell me: what period of time / models did these backwards spinning machines start and end with? I'm so used to the 70's stuff...
And I love those tuners!
It's an acquired taste - standard tuners feel so awkward for me now :D
It has never been something crucial in the choice of a bass to me. Reverse tuners on a '62 would be period correct i think. It took maybe a few minutes to get used to it anyway :D
They used the "reverse" kluson built tuners till 66ish, then switched to the shaller built (I think), with the fender logo on them.
I have "reverse" tuners on two basses and "regular" ones on five basses. I don't even think about it, I just automatically switch mental gears when I switch from the Fender VS '62 to the Lakland 4-94.
And which way the machines operate won't have any impact on the found or how you play a Jameson tribute bass.
