Brand new custom jazz for your viewing pleasure :D

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Out_of_Toon, Sep 26, 2008.


  1. Ok here it is, the best looking bass I've got so far :cool:

    It's a custom built Jean&Jean (jeanandjean.com) Jazz Bass that wasn't even supposed to be built :D
    I wanted to mod/do a Frankenstein on my Squier and wound up with a brand new custom baby, and I can't really complain, can I?

    Specs:

    34'' scale
    maple neck
    ash body
    wenge fingerboard, 22 frets
    bone nut
    BadAss II bridge
    Schaeller tuners
    EMG J-set


    And here are the pics, in the before/after sequence:

    That's grand. I really like the neck and the grain in the body is sweet. Have you played it and does it sound as it should?

  7. Thanks :)

    The neck grain is the sweetest part, IMO.
    It sounds superb, the EMGs are really doing the trick as well. Superb slap tone along with that old school fingerstyle vibe :cool:
    The neck is really smooth, like it's not even there :D

    I'm yet to play it on a ''serious'' amp, though, and the strings aren't that much to my liking (they're d'addarios, i prefer ernie ball, but those were the only ones I could find at the moment).

    That nice is a nice bit of wood like, I have to say.
     
  12. 4-leaf-clover shaped control cavity cover is the most pownage I have ever seen! :D
     
  13. Hahaha, I was waiting for someone to comment on that :D
    It's the luthier's trademark, signature if you will. I think sanding that down to fit the gap was the most frustrating part of the job.
     
  14. That is one SEXXXY bass! Makes me want to dance....:D

    Super cool. :hyper:

    Wish it was mine!

    The Badass don't hurt either. :bassist:
     
  16. I'd hit it!!!:D

    No but really, that's a gorgeous bass man. I'm digging the neck and the top on that, and EMG's to top it off. Really nice, congrats!!!

    Very nice looking. I didn't see any Jazz basses at their web site. Was this a special order?
     

  18. Sweet.


    Dance and play it.

    Agreed.

    I like the stripe. I think the bass would be boring without it.
