Hey Tb! I'm a long time reader and a new member to the forums. My question is about a MIM Fender Jazz 5 my dad gave me a couple years ago. It's a good little bass, but there's a few things about it that bug me to no end. For starters the action is really weird, like I'll get it perfect near the bottom frets but it'll be too close up high and all the notes are muffled. Or it'll be good up high but it's too high and tight down low. I've tried adjusting the truss rod a few times but it only seemed to help slightly. And secondly the E and B string sound very...Subby. No matter how I raise or lower the pickups they just sound very bassy. I've tried adjusting all kinds of eq to make up for it too but it doesn't help. Now I'm very aware that this is by no means a high end bass so all these problems could very well be just because it's only a decent bass. But if there's something I could do to spruce it up, (new pickups, adding a pre-amp, etc), I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on it .
