So straight to the point. 5-string Warmoth Deluxe Jazz Swamp Ash body Maple neck and Pau Ferro fretboard. I'm shopping around for electronics and pickups. I really dig the classic Fender sound (more from the 70s than 60s) But I'd like something with a bit more bottom end that can still speak clearly in the upper registers. I'm not sure if I want to go active or passive. I think active would be sweet but I like natural sound of passive basses, if I were to go passive I'd probably still get a stellartone tonestyler. I play all kinds of music but my favourite tones definitely come from old R&B records (again, I'd like it a bit more 'umph' out of the lower frequencies still), and Jaco. Always Jaco. What can you recommend me TalkBass? ps. I like exposed pole pieces!
