James Johnston Jazz Bass Club

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by pica, Feb 16, 2014.


  1. I am proud to start the official James Johnston Jazz Bass Club. This is the most amazing Squier Bass I've seen and heard. It sounds as good if not better then some Mexican Fenders I've played. It has to be played to really be appreciated. It only comes in Lake Placid Blue so don't look for other colors. Don't quite understand the mint green pickguard but that can easily be changed. Okay, who want's to join?

    Before some of you guys scream around "WHO THE HELL IS JAMES JOHNSTON", I'd like to tell you that is the bass player for scottish rock band Biffy Clyro.



    One of my fav' bands actually... I even got a Biffy tattoo... :D
     
  5. Man, I want one of these bodies to throw a maple board on!!!
     
  6. Thanks Ian774. I'm sure that question is bound to be asked.

    Never been able to watch'em live here in Italy but been there in England to do it. they're better live than on record...

    Squier also released Simon Neil's signature Stratocaster off same '60s Classic Vibe series in Fiesta Red and mint green pickguard

    Not necessarily what they play live (I mean exact Squier models) but they usually only employ Stratocaster and Jazz btw.

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    Wallace320, I've seen Biffy Clyro 4 times live, and although James mainly uses Jazz basses (American standard and Deluxe), he also uses Precision bass (one with classic P pickup, one with PJ) and a Gibson Ripper or Grabber, can't remember.

    It would be nice if he played his signature model for a couple of tunes anyway...he could change out the pickups and pots and no one would be the wiser. LPB rocks.
     
  11. Any more James Johnston jazz bass owners out there? Plenty of room for more.........

    I'm in. Got mine last April (iirc). Gigged with it a few times before my band folded.
    Very nice bass IMO. Fit and finish far exceed the price point.

    Got mine a week ago and im loving it. The other one I own is a 80$ small scale chinese bass, as you can guess the difference was HUGE. The sound is much smoother and the finish is great.

    I'm guessing they went for a scottish flag look
     
  15. Grorenauta you are number 4. Welcome to the club.

    I unfortunately can no longer play Jazz basses, my left hand cramps up. So now I'm all P bass all the time. But I really liked my JJ Jazz while I had it. Excellent bass, amazing for the money. I'm a sucker for matching headstocks.

    Here is my old bass. Someone here on TB owns it now.
