Man, that is sexy looking! I would love to hear how it sounds. You need to throw some audio clips up there. Tell us about her please. Passive P I presume?
Love it, dude!
Love that neck. Not even funny how gorgeous that is.
I want one
That FB is stunning and the whole look comes together with the Tort PG. Is the FB Rosewood? Very light-colored. The .pdf link you posted is blocked at work. Beautiful bass!
Absolutely gorgeous. Funny it reads that the fretboard's rosewood; I'd have said pau ferro or something...
Anyway, I love it. Would love it more in a 5ver, though...
I've been admiring that bass from afar for a few weeks now. A more detailed review with sound clips is mandatory. Congratulations!
Also, in the PDF, it remarks that the Jazz bass pickup is in the "70's precision bass position". Is this a typo? Was there any specific Precision Bass pickup positioning in that decade?
Regardless of the answer, I still want one.
Just a note, this is the stock photo from Fender CS, I don't own the bass
Prolly a typo.
Looks that way to me as well. I guess they've shifted the QC issues over to the marketing department...
This sounds a little petty, but if I'm about to drop close to four grand on a guitar, I want the maker to have at least proof-read the specification copy. That error is reproduced in at least two places: on the marketing slick and on the website. I'd imagine the people who would be potential customers of the custom shop would care about these things.
Not a typo. The 70's jazz pickup spacing refers to the bridge pickup on 70's jazz basses which was moved 1/4" closer to the bridge compared to jazz basses from earlier years (aka '60's spacing). Split P-pickups have always remained in the same position but PJ basses have no 'standard' location for the J-pickup. Look at the space between the P and J pickup in this photo of a Hot Rod P where the jazz pickup is in the '60's position and you'll see the difference:
I know the story about the 70s Jazz pickup positioning, my qualm is with the literature referring to it as "70s Precision Bass position" which makes no sense. I know from looking at the instrument what they MEANT to say, and my issue isn't confusion, it's just kind of a rookie mistake on the part of people who want me to spend 4 large on two pieces of wood bolted together. That's all.
My lawn, off of it please.
I think that the typo is using the word "Precision" instead of "Jazz".
This really should be in HD, but here is a decent overview:
