    I've been wanting a 70's jazz bass but having read the Hal-Leonard "The Fender Bass" book I am confused by the repositioning of the bridge pickup.

    The pickup was placed closer to the bridge from early 1970's until 1980's when it went back to its former position.

    What effect if any did this have on the tone?

    Has anyone that has tried and/or owned both basses got any comments please?
