ok- so i thought id have some fun before i take off to work here in a minute. i love me some jazz basses. primarily ash/maple marcus style basses. so heres a blindfold test of three of my basses. a) 1978 fender jazz bass-completely stock. no aftermarket parts. around 11.5 pounds. b) 2001 75 fender jazz bass reissue. bad ass 2 bridge. everything else is stock. around 10 pounds with the badass bridge. c) hotwire funky 77 5 string jazz bass. nordstrand single coils,j retro preamp, badass 5 bridge. around 9.5 pounds. the mp3 is the 3 basses played back to back. not in the order mentioned above. the line played is a little piece of run for cover. played through my rig, i think some of the nuances are captured a little better and to my ears the 3 basses sound pretty different. in this clip, i dont know if i could tell you which bass was which if they weren't my own. so, take some guesses as to the order!
