  2. The J one is the jazz bass looking one, right?

    If that's what it is, even though its a tad heavy, it feels and sounds pretty damned cool...I don't own it though.

    I bought one from a TB member (5stringDan or something like that. :confused: LOL) & it's a very nice bass. It's currently the least favorite in my collection but my collection has some top choice basses. :)

    For me, it feels that the width @ the nut is slightly narrower than my other jazz bass & is slightly uncomfortable for me to play. The bass sounds good with the stock p/u's thru my Sadowsky out-board pre-amp & it weighs over 10 lsb. It has a 2-Tek bridge, also.

    I thought Fender was a poor man's Sadowsky.
     
  6. I bought my son one three years ago. It has EMG pickups. Don't know if that was standard. I really like that bass a lot, very comfortable neck, not to heavy, quiet, good looking, well made for the price. It does sound great live in the PA through a SABDDI. If my son would give it up, I would not be in the market for another bass (for a while). The only thing I don't like is that it is a one tone machine. I like to have more versatility with on board controls.
