    I finally decided on what bass to order. I have a transparent orange fender american jazz bass with a rosewood neck delivering tomorrow. I'm pumped. now my stingray will have someone to play with.

    I just noticed a feature on it. the S-1 switch. apparently when activated it gives it a P-bass type sound. anyone want to comment on this?
     
  2. I believe it is a series/parallel switch. The series setting makes the 2 pickups act as one massive humbucker. It will be louder in that position and will produce a lot of "thump."

There is only one problem with it.. its hard to take good quality pics of it... all the pics i have found online with this colour(including ones i tried to take myself) turn out crappy.

    Congrats on the bass man, your gonna love that finnish, i garuntee it!

    It's delivering to my office today. I'm very very excited. last night i bought a new stand for it and had it set up like a mother has the the crib and baby room ready for the newborn. i also had a talk with my 5 year old stingray and explained to her there was going to be a new baby in the house.
     
  7. we need pics. I have never seen an orange bass.
