Essex SJB62 jazz bass... some questions...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by apoodangle, Oct 26, 2003.

  1. i'm interested in buying an Essex J Bass. i love the way the Fender Jazz Basses feel but shelling out an extra $200 over the SX is pretty dumb

    but i have one concern... the Fenders have a nut width of 1 1/2" and the SX is 1 9/16". i know it's a VERY negligible difference. but P basses feel clunky to me and that's only 1/8" wider than a jazz bass neck. so is there a difference in playability or not?

    There shouldnt be a difference. If anything, i think it would be easier to play, but thats only for me, because i dont REALY enjoy really small necks.
  3. oh my god what a mindjob... you're figjam from TC!

    i used to be opivy before all the craziness

    thanks though, i'm going for the SX then for sure if it doesn't make that much difference.

    Yes, im Figjam from TC, greetings.
  5. To me, my fretless SX jazz is perfect...my MIM P-bass is just a little bit more clunky, but both are comfortable to me.

    Honestly, it won't make that much difference.
