A Fender question: I already own a Roscoe Beck 5-string Fender, which is great for vintage sounds. However, my particular RB 5 is not capable of modern, bright sounds. So I've bought a Fender American Standard 5-string Jazz, which should arrive today. It has an alder body an rosewood board, and has been hot-rodded with Noiseless pickups and a J-retro onboard preamp. Has anyone heard/compared a Fender with a high-end active preamp and great pickups next to a Roscoe Beck 5? The new bass should be able to get the "modern" tones I've been missing, right?
