Totally love it. It is beautifully balanced and a delight to play.
Close to pulling trigger
Anyone with an MK jazz-P doing arco? If so are you using a quiver and how have you attached it?
Would anyone with a Jazz(P) please comment on its unamplified volume; E.g. does it seem quieter than (say) a Stagg? I need to be able to practice arco at home without disturbing an other. I had a Stagg, which has no intended chambers or vibrating parts, and it was very quiet. I'm concerned that the 'resonance soundboard' may make it less than silent. Tricky subjective ask, but any response welcome. I need to shift a couple of other instruments before I can order, and ideally would find an owner in the London UK area who would let me bow his for a minute.
I don't use a bow yet, so I've no experience there. I have both the Stagg and an MK Jazz-P. The MK is noticeably louder than the Stagg and in a quiet room I can practice pizzicato without any amplification. The Stagg you really need the headphones to hear it. If the room is not perfectly quiet, I plug into an amp.
Thank-you; I feel some serious trading coming on.... I'll be putting a through-neck Thumb 5-string and a Suker fretless 5-string Uberhorn out to fund an MK Jazz-P, once my jazz guitar sells.
