    A mid 90's (not sure the exact year) Fender MIJ FotoFlame Jazz bass came in yesterday. I'm not sure what the color is called but it's kinda orange on the edges to goldish in the middle. It has the exposed ground strip from the bridge pickup to the bridge (anyone know about this?) I restrung it and tuned it up yesterday, plugged it in for a while. It has that growl I wanted. I'm very pleased with it, its quality is right up there with Am. Std's. I cant wait to start recording with it!


  2. Congrats! That's a nice looking bass.:)

    it might just be a funny camera angle, but those pickups don't look quite straight to me. other than that it looks nice congrats;)

    Thanks, yeah the angle is kinda strange.. How would flatwounds sound? I just put a new set of Everly Bass Rockers (45-105) on yesterday.
