Am a huge tone junkie. (it has to be right) I usually play a 4004cii Rickenbacker as my go to. I also have a 4003 Rickenbacker, an Ibanez SR 755 and a EBMM Stingray. Never liked a fender bass, tried many actually tried to force myself into liking them. finally played one that I liked a Geddy Lee Fender Jazz. I really liked the neck and playability but the tone will take some tweaking. All in all I really like the jazz bass.
