MIM Jazz Bass Deluxe

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by henryjurstin13, Jan 30, 2006.

  1. I have played a couple of these MIM J Dlx basses lately & have really grown to like them (for value & tones)... I played one the other day and the poles pieces in the pickups were actaully LOWER than the plastic PUP covers... is this normal? I have played another & is NOT this way.

    I like the fact that the poles were lower, because my hands get clumsy from time to time & I push the strings down to hard & I absolutely HATE that sound you get from the strings touching the PUP poles.

    are the poles adjustable? Anyone have any other comments about these basses?

    They're not adjustable, or at least I can't for the life of me figure out how to adjust mine.
    The poles on my MIM jazz are sticking up pretty far out of the plastic. I think it just comes down to the lack of quality control on stuff coming out of the factory that makes the p'ups. It's the one of the things that I don't like about my mim J.

    (That, and the body color, and the fact that it's got fretlines... :D)
