We really need an LEJ club!! How do we get this to happen??
Lengthy Extended Johnson???
Sorry I should have been a little clearer...Low End Jazz basses!!
I'd join this club! Love my LEJ!
Funky color there, Caesarbass.
Mine is a 24 fret 6er with gold hardware, frets, strings, and paint.
will be in the club by the beginning of next month
Well let me be first to congratulate myself by being the 1st member of the Low End Jazz club!! I am taking number 3, I think Brian and Chris should have the first two numbers!!! Hooray for Low End Jazz basses!!!!!
Guys, start picking your numbers!!!!
Sweet!!! I guess I'm #4. Whoo hooo! 1st club for me
I'll be 5?
I wish I were a member of this club. That LEJ P/J six I played by in July was the embodiement of sizzle!
I love it, got it from Brian about a month ago now. The highs are crispier than a freshly baked pizza...
Just got LEJ Black/black classic 5. I am loving the tone. Currently strung up w/ DR fatbeams... On the fence about these. They come w/ SIT's from LEJ. Any suggestions?
Some people don't like these but I really love D'addario ProSteels on my LEJ 5/24. They are clear, articulate, bright, even, consistent and bring out the sizzle of the bass. The regular D'addarios XL are pretty good too but my fave is the ProSteels. BTW, congrats on the slammin' bass. I really love the black on black, even though mine is white on white;-)
I saw the picture of yours, love that maple board! Thanks for the string advice.
Thanks man, I really love it. I can pretty much cover anything with that bass. BTW, if you find another string you like, let us know. Some guys really dig the DR Fat Beams. In my experience, the ProSteels were more consistent and lasted longer. I guess, I'm still looking too but haven't found anything better than the ProSteels, IMHO.
in re: strings.
My 1st 6'er has aging Webstring nickels. People may laugh, and Brian may cringe, but I ain't got a problem over lots of Webstring sets the past few years. They don't have 6-string stainless unfortunately. Lots of gigs on these stings now, so they can get thuddy for old-school stuff but still ring bright for chords/solos with some treble boost.
My 2nd 6'er rocks the stock SIT stainless, and I bought a few more sets of those from Brian when I found out how economical they are.
Y'all seen this? http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=479213 The LEJ is almost in the lead. It'd be interesting to read in-depth what such a talented player has to say of the LEJ vs. all those other fine instruments.
