holy crap, I did it !

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by AllodoX, Sep 22, 2001.

  1. I exchanged my EDC705 for a Fender 4-string Jazz-bass ! Unbelievable.. i never thought i'd do it...

    I was at a local store, browsing ( as i do every saturday ).
    I saw this Fender Jazz-bass, and thought to myself " Hmm... i've heard so much about these on TB.. what the F#, lets try it out.. "
    So i asked the salesman for a cable + amp + chair..
    I plugged it in, stroke the A-string, and got an instant erection.. Holy crap.. what sweep music it makes ! :D
    Arroused as i got, i took a quick peek at the price-tag, it said " fl 1395,- " ( about $ 550 ).. So i ran to my car, drove home with 130km/h ( where 50km/h allowed :rolleyes: ), grabbed my 2-month's old EDC and drove back.

    So now i'm a proud member of the Fender-clan (tm) :D :D :D :D

    dear allodox i know, it's a matter of growing. you are young and when i had your age i was similar in musical taste. expect the unexpected! i was a big fan of 5 string active instruments without pickguards and now i play a sweet rickenbacker 4001 and a japanese squier jazz bass. i doubt that you were so sure about you wrote about that ibanez, but i apreciate and respect you so i wrote nothing against your apsion for that ibanez, but i was quite sure that at the first good occasion you started to watch at those updated basses with nothing except essential design. it's sad Allodox but now you are wiser but older...:D
    congrats man and post pics!!

    Welcome to the club!

    Now go get a J-Retro, and you'll never get rid of that erection!

    Welcome to the club. I think every bassist should own at least one Fender. Now go try a Precision.
  8. I'm I the only one who doesn't get an erection when playing bass? Just wondering... ;)

    Welcome.... I have always loved my jazz basses... now I have three! my Geddy Lee is the standard for me, it's what bass playing is all about... Except now I am looking at a Spector... I need to go chat with Nino...

    It's so that you can fix your hair without having to put the bass back on the stand. ;)

    Welcome to the club Allodo
  12. Traitor, Your going to buy another Ibanez right.
  13. After about 5 hours of playing the J-bass.. the only thing i'm not 100 % satisfied with.. is the bridge.. it looks and feels so... well... cheap.. plus the sadles tend to slip sideways.. so i'm thinking of replacing it with a baddass II.. the only problem is.. i have absolutely no f# idea where to get them in Holland..

    but the J-bass whoops butt in all ways :D

    Welcome to the Fender club.
    I recently aquired a Geddy Lee Jazz bass, and I'm quite happy with it. I also still have by first bass, a Squire P-bass, which is about 16 years old.

    Check this out... It's the ONLY way I play a Jazz.

    Bridge pup solo'd, tone 1/8 rolled back (just a smidge).

    I think they sound great like that, very articulate, but not annoyingly bright.

    Congrats on the new bass, I knew you'd come around. :)

    I've always thought any Leo Fender product was very well constructed, and was built like a rock... that's odd, about your bridge. Definatly replace it though, if you feel the need.

    I'm not sure if any sites sell badass II's online, but I know you can go to the hipshot website and order their bridges', I suggest that... I think it's www.hipshot.com ??? Haven't been there since I was looking into a DP custom, so don't hold me to the url.

    I'd say welcome to the Fender club... but I don't have a Fender anymore, haha.

    So welcome to the Leo Fender club... (err-durr... that doesn't sound very smooth, does it?)

    Online, Mars has Badass II's and WD has Badass' and
    Gotoh 201's. I ain't sure if they ship internationally.
    You could email`em -- Mars, WD.

    Nothin' at Paul's Bass Matters? :(

    :eek: WOW! The Allodox traded his Ibanez? For a FENDER?!?!?!?!?!?

    Welcome to the Fender club, dude.

    I used to love my Soundgear, but it doesn't compare to my Geddy Lee Jazz, my Pedulla, my Zon or my Cirrus.
  18. Yah.. pretty amazing 'erh ? :)

    It's a Standard Jazz-bass in the "Brown Sunburst" colour


    and it rocks :)
