no problem :-D
hmmm nice basses...well I'm big Fender fun but I don't understand that underpickguard pickup routing. Becouse is for put trough wires more easy? Same on Custom Classic (Custom Shop). I'm not sure I like that huge bridge well hard to say...
Another reason for me to stick with my Elite . My Jazz V weighs 9.2 lbs
Well, Fender, after all the marketing hype and you missed the marketing line for this "feature"??? Come on guys. Here you go: our new weight augmentation adds girth and balls to your tone.
This is unacceptable!! My Elite Jazz V weighs
8.4lbs !! Well l guess l’m lucky
I don't get why they didn't "stop" with the Deluxes (pre-Elites). I thought the action on the former was waaaaay better than the Elites, and the necks were more consistently flat. I especially thought that the ash ones really crushed. Now, Fender makes a move away from the Elite. Granted, losing the truss wheel does suck, but perhaps the traditional heel-entry rod works better for their necks. Besides, even though not as easy as a wheel, how hard is it to stick an Allen wrench, or easier, T-bar, into the adjustment cavity? It's a breeze...just don't lose the wrench!
I don't see much difference with the Elite serie. I love the Elite jazz bass. Not sure if the Ultra will be much better.
Good news might be that the Elites are getting cheaper.
So... this or a Sadowsky? Tough one!
the clips of the J sound like a Sadowsky. I have no need for another bass but these seem to be really, really nice
Can't wait for the 'ultra-double-secret-probation' series to be released.
Sadowsky. It's still by far the most superior bass I own... However, these look really great & the videos I've seen of them are really nice! I really like the new color styles - very vintage.
Get a wider strap, hike up your skirt, and press on.
LoL, agree!!!! I have a 4" wide Moody strap that made seemingly "heavy" basses, feel light. Game changer!
Quad, love that Redd Foxx avatar!
Thank you sir!
"...that looks AND sounds incredible."
First off, sound/tone differences among these varied models is pretty marginal, really (ESPECIALLY to a crowd, if at all), and the looks??? Basically every J-Bass looks the same!!
Fancy marketing is alive and well, via the corporate bean counters at McDonal...I mean Fender. Burger King, I mean Gibson, now needs their 30,538 variation of the best Les Paul ever.
Is the compound neck still a thing with the Ultra?
Maybe their trying to force us to accept the trend towards heavier basses. The hottest players will then be forced to put window weights in their basses so they can say their have the strength to wield the 25 pound bass.
One already on Reverb...
But there were still FSRs, and Highway 1s, and.....and.....
I'm lost these days. From Squier Affinity to Fender Custom shop you have about twenty stops along the way - each adding $50-$100 or more.
