    i recently put a fretless neck on my jazz and decided to try dr hi beams and I love them but today I decided to put by labella flats on to try it because they are by far my favorite strings on that bass with the original neck. they were ok but not the hi beams for sure. I thing I will put the original neck back on and get a loaded jazz body off of ebay and just have the best of both worlds. or get really good at changing strings back and forth lol.

    No affiliation with the seller aside from a successful local trade once, but rapisme is selling a beautiful light blue loaded jazz body in the classifieds.
  3. I take 2 basses to every gig. Always. Sometimes I used to break a string at a gig, but up until a month ago, I'd not broken one for about 4 yrs.
    Then last month one broke and last week a D'addario tape wound E string broke.
    Sure glad I had another bass ready to go both these times. 😎😎😎👍👍👍

    If you break strings like that maybe you should take 3....you know just in case.
