Jazz Bass in BassPlayer Mag

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Kirk P Brosius, Apr 9, 2010.

  1. Hey all,

    The new issue of BassPlayer Magazine is here and it's all about Jazz Bass!! It really is a treat to read and it's hard to believe that this icon has been around since 1960.

    I think I'll dig the '66 out of the closet, dust 'er off, tune 'er up and take 'er to the gig tonight. I haven't played it in two or more years and I'm sure that it will be a treat. I just hope that I can remember how to work a four string :-(

    Later, Kirk

    I can't wait to see it.

    For many years my favorite (and most worn out) BP mag was the Oct 2001 for the Precision 50th anniversary. It's a nice touch that they schedule the magazine anniv issue for the same month the instrument was released.

    That's the funny thing, to me, about "p-bass" craze: The J bass can do what the P-bass does only it does other stuff too. The tone differences between the front J p'up and the traditional P-p'up are so slight that I just don't see the practical difference. I've owned several P-basses over the years, and every one I slapped a J pickup in the bridge position. Every one. And I was glad I did it. What's wrong with versatility?

    When are they doing a Stingray issue?
  17. My license plate says "JAZZBAS" and I love the crap out of them, not necessarily Fender Jazzes but jazz basses in general. The best bass ever conceived IMHO.
  18. When it's 50 years old.
