I visited the LowEnd shop last Saturday, and got to play some great basses. Brian Barrett's LowEnd Jazzes blew me away! The are definitely more modern and sizzly than a regular jazz. Brian explained to me that he was influenced by the original Tobias as much as Jazz basses in designing the LowEnd Jazz. A special treat was that I was able to play the first P/J (reverse p) LowEnd Jazz. It was a six string, and it rocked! I am not normally a fan of P/J slap tones, but this bass was wonderful. Although the LowEnd is well beyond my normal bass budget, it is one bass that would be worth cutting back in other areas to pay in order to make the purchase. I'm in love!
