... the bodies are ash and I don't want just a bright sounding slap bass. I intend getting a rosewood neck version for a warmer sound, and aesthetically, I think the block inlays and RW combination can't be beat. Great vibe. The jazz tones I like tend to be the picked sounding, slightly staccato 70's grooves that players like Herbie Flowers was doing (Jeff Waynes War Of The Worlds era). Now I know that the 62 reissue would probably get me closest soundwise off the bat than the 75, but will a 75 AV RW reissue also be a good starting point for that kind of tone? I just love some of those 70s (non-slap) disco grooves and it's time to add a Jazz to the stable. As an aside, anyone also know what bass the guy from the Bee Gees was using circa Night Fever?
