Hi bass buddies, I have a '96 Fender USA Deluxe fretless jazz. I think the bass-mid-treble control is ok though i don't use the middle control at all; not my taste. I boost bass a bit and lean more to the bridge pickup. The tone is closer to an acoustic, which is what i like, but it doesn't provide enough "electric" bass feel for me. it's not very "jass bass" feel to me either (maybe because of the fact fretless?). I am thinking using a Sadowsky preamp and/or even use Sadowsky pickup. Just try and test the tone difference. Can anyone have this experience or comments on both/either USA Deluxe or Sadowsky? Thanks!
