When were these discontinued? Just found one in a shop, and don't get paid till Thursday. Wondering how long it's been sitting on their wall.
I bought mine last year and i have to say that it's wonderful bass to play!! and it looks great. I have modified it quite a lot. It has now third pickup. SG-bass kind of mudbucker.
Theres also 3-way pickup selector and positions are,
1. jazz pickups
2. all 3 pickups
3. only mudbucker
When all 3 pickups are in use it sounds just awesome! and that i use the most And when i use only mudbucker the sound is really raw and attacking. When that is on you can see from guitarplayers face that ''what the hell happens?!''
PS. Sorry my bad english :/
Just picked up a NOS James Johnston Jazz(hangtag dated 2014). Pretty excited about my first brand new bass since 1992.
So after fifteen years without bass, I bought a sweet squire CV 60s jazz bass in Inca silver yesterday. Can't wait to get playing again. I think I've caught a bit of gas because I'm loving the look of the James Johnston version. I'm going to watch these forums and the internet like a hawk and hopefully I can join the club. Not to soon tho, it would break my heart if one was available and I couldn't get it because budgets are real lol.
Well these basses have been discontinued. You may be able to find a used one on EBAY or Guitar Center. Good Luck
Yea it will be interesting to see how it plays out. Fortunately I'm patient. It will be fun keeping an eye out for one of these. I do the same thing with old french large frame racing bikes. I like picking out one highly specific thing in a genera.
My beautiful James Johnston Squire bass during a break
I have one too! Great build, neck, frets, Everything! However, I replaced the stock pups with Fender Custom Shop 60's Jazz pups. I now find myself playing my JJ way more than my US Jazz.
I just got a $1200 Carvin/Kiesel but somehow always find myself playing my $350 James Johnston.
I play guitar in a different band and THAT bass player continually asks me why I play a Squier for may bass gigs (technically, it's once of three basses I own). "Because it's a good bass."
I have it hotrodded (active controls; upgraded Fender pickups; Hipshot tuners to include drop-D key), so it's an instrument that had its original mojo but continues to deliver the goods
Hey, kooky kids - IF I were to sell mine, what would people be willing to bid on it? I’m still really into mine, but things are looking pretty damn grim on the financial front, I’d rather keep it “in house” as it were. I’m set up with a Reverb site, so for ease I’d probably sell it through there (because I can take people’s credit cards, Paypal, even Affirm). Just floating this idea to see what’s reasonable - as always, I’d like to get what I can from it without being too greedy - but man, do I need the cash. Here’s a pic to remind people - it’s all stock except for the pickguard (and I can include the original)
Just discovered your forum. I just got myself a second hand JJ with a SWR amp and extension cabinet.
I have to admit I am more of a guitar player than a bass player but as i come close to my retirement I figured I would go all in and have one for my man cave...
From reading you guys it seams that luck was on my side when I picked this base for $150 Canadian
Anyhow could you recommend a good website to get me started on the bass
Any suggestions would be appreciated
You got a sweet deal! As far as getting started with bass this is an excellent site StudyBass - Free Online Bass Lessons
Thanks for your help !
Here's mine hanging with the siblings.
I´ve been looking for a Squier James Johnston Jazz Bass - Lake Placid Blue for a while now and found 1 used here in Brazil, where I live. Yesterday it arrived and as soon as I started playing, something got my attention: the headstock painting kinda mismatched the body's. While the top still resembled Lake Placid, the down seemed greenish - sherwood green maybe. The previous owner claimed that the painting faded - since its a chinese squier crafted in 2011.
Is that even possible? Did you guys JJ owners notice sth like that? I fear that this one may be a 'frankenstein': Squier JJ headstock with some other body. I attach some pics so you could drop me a line in help - or support...
It happens. Lake placid blue is known to do that. Exposure to sunlight. Olympic white yellows, silver turns green. Enjoy it!!
Hi, mine got also a little more green. (I was aware of it when I put it near my Fender also in Lake Placid blue.)
But I like it, because I wanted always to have one of the Adam CLAYTON Fender Signiture in sherwood green!
Is a JJ membership still possible?
