    What brand do you feel best supports the Fender Jazz bass sound?

    IMHO there is no real answer to this question.

    The J is one of the most widely used basses ever, including all styles from jazz to hardcore, being played through any amp from Glockenklang to SVT, depending on the sound the player is after.
    Of cause there are amps which add more color to the sound and others which sound more 'hifi'. And of cause the latter will let the true tone of the J better shine through - but this is true for any bass, not only the Jazz...

    Just my 2 cents.

    I second Matthias´s opinion.

    There is no "THE" amp for any bass.

    i thought that every one i had played was pretty rotten. i got to touch (not play) one that jaco played through though...
     
  6. A bit like saying "I have a Trace Elliot 712SMC combo. What is the best bass for it?".
