    I'll echo what has already been said - great playing & great tone! :)

    I have the 5-string version of the bass in that vid - and 3 other SX's jazz basses on top of that.

    Great instruments - and the one in the video is clearly in some talented hands! :cool:

    I think guy really comes very close to the active Bartolini tone of the Warrior Snoop used. He has a great touch.

    Man, this guys sounds great! I love when I find SX jazz bass videos where the person isn't slapping the entire time.

    Killer tone! I wonder why my Fender won't cop a tone like that? (of course, my USA G&L L2500 comes close to nailing it)

    I guess it's all in the fingers.

    :bag:

    After listening to this guy play, I am feeling pretty dumb for laying away an American Standard Fender Jazz V that a dealer gave me a good deal on since it has been on the wall for a few years. I probably just need to stay off the internet and practice harder on my Affinity!

    This is just another example that you can take a good player and put them on a subpar instrument and they will still sound great.
