    Hi, I once read somewhere that 1969 has the best slap bass sound...is that true? How about Pre-CBS jazz basses? Which one is the best sounding Fender Jazz vintage bass?

    (Sorry My question was kinda dumb, let me re-explain)

    Did the Jazz Bass "pick-up specs" EVER Change...since 1960?
    Did the pick-ups become better and better every year?
    Maybe it was at it's best at 1964 before CBS took over.

    Maybe Leo Fender discovered something new &...went.
    "Oh, oops, this sounds way better...but I guess we won't tell them"

    I understand that After 1965 until 1969, there were many different colors of basses.
    But did they change anything else?

    I am into Vintage Fender Jazz basses.
    I'm trying to figure out if Pre-CBS is better in any way.
    I would love to get some professional opinions.
  2. There is no answer to this question...
  3. Did you try with diferent strings?
  4. wow, for a moment I was thinking I´m nuts ginving you that answer, thnks for explaining what happend.
