    This is a 2001 Spector NS-2J; bolt-on, EMG j pickups and gloss finish.
    I ordered this bass with an ash body and a maple board, so it's custom; it was later upgraded with a 3 band Glockenklang preamp and a brass hipshot bridge inststead of the aluminun one in this video; and now it Sounds MUCH better.
    I hope you like the bass solo which is towards the end of the video
    Cheers

    My suggestion was going to be the Spector also.

    hi
    I just found another bass solo of me playing with a Spector JJ bass; this bass looks like it has soapbars, but under those EMG Boxes, there are 2 EMG 35J active pickups. The bass came originally with 2 EMG 35 DC pickups, but I swaped them for 2 EMG 35J ; so eventhough it does not look like JJ pickups, in reality it is a double J configuration. Here the bass is isolated more, so you will be able to hear it better, eventhough the amp I used that day is not the best, the sound came through ok. I hope you like it; I would say Spector abd Sadowskys with EMG JJ should give you the tone you want. This bass is Neckthrough, the one on the previous video was a Bolt-On. Bass solo starts one minute and fifty seconds into the song and is quite long.
    Cheers

  13. All of my warwicks except the FNA were JJ. They all sounded pretty modern to me. I've gotten away from modern tones though lately and have been going for more of an old school vibe.

    Thanks.
    The Nordstrand loaded basses have Audere Pres and Dimarzio has a Nordstrand Pre.

    I forgot the name of it, but Yamaha has a nice high end model with J/J pickups that has gotten great reviews. I hope somebody will name it.
