I'm about to get myself an old school classic standard J-Bass. But I have a few questions so I can inform myself better when buying myself one: What I'm primarily looking is - that "jaco" buttery tone and a nice warm bassline when not "jacoing" in a band Questions: For achieving the above described sound as best as possible, I need to know a few things: 1. Should I take rosewood or maple neck? Some pros and cons would be great here... 2. Should I look for ash or alder? Again, pros and cons would be great... 3. Should I look for used older J-Basses like 70's or 80's or 90's or are the newer 2000's competitive enough? (I know that this is a very delicate question but if I need to decide what to do here) 4. rosewood vs maple fretboard - do they feel the same in the hands or not? (I mean, is for ex. maple harder to play on than rosewood or vice versa?) Thanks for the answers. Edit: 5. What would I benefit by choosing some reissue model over the american standard? As I've heard the reissue series are better made? Or is it just a myth?
