I've got a near mint '71 jazz (bridge PU is closer to the bridge), with rosewood, but it just sounds so plain and has no life. I've even used TI flats that have a lot of mids and it still has no personality. I tried some nickle plated Rotos and they seem to add the most personality thus far. The bass is all stock and I really can't see changing the PUs or bridge on this pristine bass or altering it in any way. I know in the mid to late 70's I would pull out the sucky PUs, but I'm not really liking that idea here. But I know the Fender 62's would sound good. Rolling back the neck PU some really doesn't sound pleasing. I guess I'm left with strings so possibly this needs to go in that section, but I thought maybe I'm missing something else as an option. Playing through an Ampeg PRO3 and either a Fender 1x15 or Ampeg 1x12. I get full sounding punch out of everything else but this Jazz. Just searching for something I may have missed. Possibly I'm just let with adding a lot of minds with the EQ. Anyone else have a lifeless Jazz with thoughts to offer?
