Finally Got It!!

  1. Today I went down to my local Mars Music store and picked up a Fender Standard Deluxe Jazz V. I am very happy with it, even though I had to go strait to work after I bought it. Of course I had to get the normal strap and strap locks
    to go with it. I got the Candy Apple Red. It is a nice bass to go along with my MIA P-bass. I think this will rid me of some G.A.S., but now I think that I need a new head to go with my cab. I sure do like it, and it has the best action I have ever seen on a bass right from the store. Does any one else here have this bass and like it as much as I do? Next I might venture into the world of Fretless...
    Never know...HEHEHE

    Congrats Jim! :D

    CAR is one of my fav colors.
  4. Nice axe, the deluxe is far better than the Std.
  5. I was wondering if anyone knows an average time that I can expect the 9v to last in my bass, if it is played for say an hour a day?

    My wife got me that exact bass (well, I picked it out and she paid for it) for Father's Day last year. I've been playing guitar for close to 20 years and now that I started recording a bass seemed like a good idea.

    Actually, I've hardly picked up my guitar since I bought it. I'm slowly becoming a bottom dweller :D

    I change the battery on my active when it starts to sound kinda fuzzy, you'll know the sound when you hear it. Mine last about 2 or 3 months

    Remove the instrument cable from the bass when not in use and the battery could last in excess of 6 months.
  9. Last night I was up until about 2:30 am because I was playing my bass. I installed the straplocks and got all of the plastic off the pickguard and knob plate. It looks neat with the black straplocks on the bass, which I put on all of them I have. Now I have to take my Peavey Combo 115 into the store because I fear that there is a tear in the speaker. Hopefully I can get it reapaired or sell it for a good price.

    I usually replace the batteries in my active basses after 3 or 4 months. I then put the old battery in my Boss tuner.

    My actives have all come with Duracell Industrial batteries, and they seem good for 1.5-2 years. I wonder where joe public can buy them?
  12. I just played this last night at church and I like it even more. Sounds pretty good through the hartke kickback 15 and the church pa. A friend noticed my new bass and really liked the sound. This one is sure heavier than my P! It is taking a while for me to get comfortable with the extra string, but I brought my Precision just in case I couldnt get a song, but I ended up using the Jazz most of the service!
