Anyone who knows about any 24 fretted "jazz bass" styled basses?
Well, at the risk of being painfully obvious...
Fender Jazz 24.
This is one fine bass , Sadowsky 24 fret 5 string. [/IMG]
Ohhh... stupid me.
I obviously should have added that I'm looking for a bass to attach my Roland V Bass GK2B pup on, and the "classic" jazzbass body style leaves that nice space.
(Fender Jazz 24 got to much knobs in that area :-(
But... I want to detune to DGCF and still reach that high E tone.That's where the 24 frets come in handy.
Eugen Classic series basses are wonderful!
I Googled for
Eugen classic series Jazz bass
but didn't find anything.
If you find a Jazz you really like, you could just buy a Warmoth replacement neck with a 24 fret extension. Find a body on eBay, but some electronics and hardware, and you're off to the races.
I'll check that out.
nah, in a traditional jazz it is already hard to reach the 21st fret, the 24th would be totally useless.
Actually, so does my five-string Ibanez Soundgear. The GK-3B works fine if you shift it over -- the split pickup isn't string dependent, it just needs a single string (ie frequency range doesn't matter). I've had no more tracking issues with the pickup moved over one string than intended as I had in the first place. I use a GR-20, so the tracking should matter more on mine. I don't think it's an issue.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but check out this Fender.
Now I've checked out that "replacement 24 fret neck" a bit and I think that 24th fret are unreachable on a standard jazz body.
Any other suggestions?
The Mike Lull Modern 5 line have 24 frets.
