    Hi guys.
    I tried Hardee HJB 24 jazz bass copy in natural finished yesterday.
    I think the sound is just like squier standard jazz.
    It is Indonesian local brand (www.hardeeguitars.com) and priced about $280.
    It has indian cedar/mahogany body with canadian spruce neck & fretboard.
    The body wood has bright brown colour with straight grain.
    The fretboard & neck has bright yellowish colour with straight & smooth grain.
    Do you guys have any experiences with these woods?
    How about the tone quality of the woods?
    Thanks.

    Is the body cedar or mahogany? Is it a choice between the two?

    The 5 is super narrow neck but the wood looks nice. Normally I don't like the control plate- no pick guard look but on that bass it looks good.

    Finally...at least there is a response.. :D

    I don't know either is it a combination or a choice between indian cedar and mahogany.
    But I think it is kind of subtitution of the supplies. When they have some indian cedar they use it and when they have mahogany they use the mahogany. :meh:

    Let's just say the body made from indian cedar, I just curious about the tonal quality of indian cedar on the body and the canadian spruce on the neck & fretboard.
    Are they good or not?? :help:
