What's everyone's general favorite? Whats THE jazz to have?
70's Ash/Maple - done and done.
My vote is for a mid 60s alder rosewood jazz. My favorite jazz basses always seem to be from '66.
My favorite is mine: alder/maple. Don't know what I'd do if I bought another, but it would probably have a rosewood or pau ferro board. Like if, hypothetically speaking of course, it's a Fender American Jazz V.
Alder and rosewood, something I don't have
60's alder/rosewood!!! No questions about! And if you already have one, you can buy another for those 70's sounds.
I'm gonna have to go with Alder/Rosie. I certainly don't have anything against Ash/Maple though.
im with alder/rosewood,
i really wanna buy a 66 i see around in a local shop but i just havnt got the cash for it... hopefully i will get teh cash before someone else buys it
To me, it's a 60's alder/ rosewood in sunburst with a tort pickguard. When I hear JAZZ BASS, that's the mental image I immediately get.
They're both great setups, but I have a soft spot for the "60's" version.
Alder/rosewood, although these days I am really digging alder/ebony.
Alder/rosewood. I have three J's with that combo.
Unforunately featherweight alder isn't available anymore. My '69 J just kills, and is only 8lbs.
alder/rosewood. i want one badly. i own a ash/maple and like it, but to me the "sound" is the alder/rosewood.
70's ash/maple. It can't be beat in terms of punch and cut.
+1 60's jazz bass - alder/rosewood - Just like Jaco's
70 ash/map, sunburst w/ tort or black PG, bound and blocked , thats THE bass for me.
Alder, definitely for me. Maple or Rosewood depending on the color of the body (I'm not much of a traditionalist...).
For me it´s Ashbody & Rosewood Fretboard
I love the look and brightness of ash and maple.
