Can you dig it?
Aside from the fact that the tuners look drawn on, it looks exactly the same as the first JP bass. Of course, the first was only offered in two finishes, so maybe churning out a few red ones designates teh sequel. Maybe I can finally afford the first one now.
Dont like Photoshop pics. Wish it was an actual picture.
That looks a bit like this Hanewinckel ( http://www.hguitars.com/ ). Just got this pic today.
Dave: does it really look like the yamaha? even though both basses look YUMMY!!
It has a longer scale (35"), upgraded preamp, and two more frets.
oh yeah!! its 26 frets! didn't notice that.. the fret markers are hard to tell on this one (which number your on etc..)
Looks sweet! I wonder how the new preamp sounds?
The woods and finish look similar. Yeah, the body shapes aren't that close.
at a guitar show a whiles back i ran into a custom designer dude who asked what 6 i was using right now, and i told him it was a TRBJP6 (an amber one) -
he said he had just seen JP using one too (in NYC), and that JP told him that his had a different (and this guy insisted better) preamp than the stock production models
that didn't sound right, cause JP is a really straight shooter, and had told a bunch of folsk that i was with at a clinic that, save for a nicely birdseyed neck piece, that his axe was stock - no mods, and nothing that you wouldn't get in retail
last week i scoped the collectives site from bass day, and saw that JP was playing what looked to be an amber JP6
i looked hard for any sign of custom work, and immediatley noticed that the tuners were different, and the line jack was mounted in a more traditional spot, rather than where they are on the stock models (sloped up by the bottom straplock)
from a distance you couldn;t even tell it had 26 frets - this must be a cool new mod
here's a pic:
the trbjp basses are quite awesome---play and sound really great....they're just so darn HUGE
The older version looks better to me but this one might be (should be) a better bass (mainly because of the 26 frets, 35" scale and....those new tuners
Hi, can someone tell me if the TRPJP2 has got a active/passive feature?
