..that is the most bang for the buck and the most workhorse giggable machine?
Yup, that pickup combo is killer... I love the sound of my Hot Rod P-Bass with both pickups on "10".
Barroso, I believe you can't go wrong with such a bass. It has the P and J things in a single bass. Should have a killer tone.
One of my favs
mmmmmmm...... I'll take it, but. you know, set up the right way.... this one looks like it's all, well, wrong!
yeah!!!!! tufnuts is my hero... for atleast the next five minutes!
Can you get the PJ configuration in a 5 string ash jazz bass? I ask for no particular reason
I've never played a P-bass with the P/J's, but I have on other basses; it's killer!
Yes. Click the picture!
Is this the only colors/woods this is available in? Looks like something I might want but it's way too expensive for a fender (for me).
i think that mike lull makes a Pj in 5 strings. sadowsky too.
Right but I'm thinking cheap...those aren't what I would call cheap. I mean I know I can get a basic Fender Jazz for like 400 something bucks, but its not a PJ...just curious if you can get a PJ in a jazz shape for cheap...
IMO, no. Personally I think that the P-J pickup configuration is wack. The pickups were not really designed to work together at all. There are some frequency cancellations that make for a sound that I don't like much. Some people do like it. A bass like that is only good with either pickup all the way up and the other one off IMO.
You could take a MIM J5 and install a 5 string P pup then make a new pickguard to hide the woodworking.
Would be relatively inexpensive and easy to do.
Not exactly Fender but these sound just as good as any Fenders I own and I'm a Fender guy.
My St Blues
that's SO nice!!!
Thanks barroso, The pic doesn't do it justice and it really is a thunderouse bass.
Dood! Aren't you thinking about buying a third Fodera right now?
Yeah...I'm not just "thinking" about it I'm 95% sure I'm gonna do it. This would just be a beater I could do stuff with like add the LED's I talked about earlier and maybe install a midi pickup on. Stuff I would never want to do to my Fodera's...
I'm not really a fan of Fender stuff but I have played one I actually liked. Most of the one's I've played I've absolutely hated. However I did play a 5 string jazz once that I thought was pretty darn nice for the money. It played well, sounded good...didn't look too shabby either (wine red with white pickguard). I dunno...for a few hundred bucks you don't have much to lose. If I did though I wouldn't be looking forward to the "Fender Twist."
