I just had an interesting hour in my local music shop. I played a deluxe US Fender Jazz, a US 62 Precision Reissue, a Sting Precision Reissue, a Musicman Sterling, a Musicman Stingray and a Warwick Corvette. This was the top shelf stuff on offer and I was pretty shocked by how poor (to my ears) some of these options were. In short, the Jazz was very lame, the Warwick and Sterling too brittle. So I was left really enjoying the round tone of the 62 and the awesome ash maple zap sound of the Stingray. I started thinking, wouldn't it be nice to have the rounded neck pickup mix added to the Stingray style bridge humbucker. Obviously this isn't a new thought But I'm on limited resources over here so I'm wondering if anyone Lakland users out there can tell me a bit about why the use the bass they do. Tonally what does the 4402 offer? US or Skyline.
