I play bass for about 12 years. My first bass was a Spanish model Jazz (its a brazilian bass) I had only this bass for a long time, but with the years I noticed tha I want more punch and bottom end from a bass. Then 4 year ago I bought a Warwick Streamer LX, very good bass... but it didt do the sound I was looking for, and it had a radio interference problem caused by the active circuit. One year and a half ago I sold the warwick and bought a American Standard Precision Bass, I loved this bass... One month ago I though hey, I need a Jazz bass too, I need a different sounding bass. Then I bought a MIM Jazz and put dimarzio DP123 pickups on it. Well, I would Like to say that the best bass I have ever played is the fantastic AMERICAN STANDARD PRECISION BASS!!!, I love the power, the bottom end, the punch!!!, I cant get this sound from the Jazz bass. I play Basic Rock and Punk Rock, and I can say that nothing is better than a Precision to do it. Its just a comment, I would like to let everybody know that I LOVE PRECISION BASS!!!
