Just picked it up yesterday.......
Very Nice.. Congrats
I think the tort with just the neck cover would be the coolest for that bass.
Very nice instrument!
HOLY BATS! That looks incredible. Love those inlays. Congrats!!
If you don't mind me asking, how much?
Great minds think alike.
Holy crap. I'm the market for that bass. Black on black with Ashtrays is probably the hottest bass I've ever seen.
I was debating what body finish to get. Done.
Thanks alot everybody! I've been looking for a nice 70's Jazz for a long while now (who hasn't?) and this came up real quick yesterday and I jumped on it. All in all, the price was pretty good: Just under 2 grand, which isn't cheap, but then they're going for over $3000 on ebay.
I can't decide which look is best for it.
you mean like this?
Very very very nice.
I got turned off fender a while back but that is making me change my mind.
That's a really nice bass! I'd go with the black pickguard and cover over the pup. I would remove the bridge cover for palm muting while picking. Killer! Good luck!
Jeez, I'm slow. I get it now...
I'd go with the tort guard, and bridge cover only. The one over the neck pup, whether on P or J (or Tele bass) is *always* right where I find I get the best tone with my right hand.
Black with torg guard, mmm, tasty.
that bass looks really nice!
i like the tort guard.
Which one is original?
That is so unbelievably hot!
I think you should keep both covers on, just because the bass is that cool.
Man I almost drooled on my keyboard, that is one sexy Jazz! Id keep the black pickguard...black on black looks awesome against the maple and the inlays. Me personally im not a big fan of the ashtrays so I would ditch them.
Thats really really nice I hope to own somethign like that some day.
No matter how cool they look, pickup covers get in the way. The black/black is very classy, if your gig is weddings/corporate events I might go that way - otherwise, that tort really looks excellent. How heavy? how's she feel? how's she sound?
Thanks everybody! I've looked for this bass high and low for a long time. Sometimes you get lucky I guess. I've had plenty of not such good luck.
She's less than 9 lbs., which compared to my StingRay 5 is like paper.
The feel is unreal; smooth and fast; real comfortable.
Sound? Want Marcus? He's there. Want Geddy? Got it. Want solid bottom with some mid punch? Check. I'd like to put some foam under the bridge to get a good Jamerson.
It's not that Jaco-y; it sounds good for "Portrait of Tracy", but isn't quite as punchy as the 60's J's. With some amp eq, you can get close.
Funnily enough, I felt today the sound was fairly close to an Alembic; I used to own one and some tones are close; you can defintely get a close Stanley sound on it, as strange as that may seem.
oh man...no fair
