  2. Dutch laws clearly state that it is forbidden to post about a fender, without a closeup. ;)

    help I'm drowning

    is that an American Deluxe?
  4. How is the B on that? Every Fender 5er I've played have kinda floppy B's.

    It looks great, I'm gettig a tortoise shell guard on my Essex. Black and tortoise looks so damn sexy!

    Is it just me, or is that a purple heart fretboard?

    Awesome, I dunno whats the big rave over tortoise, but anywho.

    Is it just me, or does the bass not blend well with the background? The background seems so, unreal.
  6. My B is fine! Not the greatest, but its no Sound Gear.

    It should be pau ferro fretboard shouldn't it? It does look real purple though...

    That is my bass! It looks exactly the same, well, mine has a badass II, also. The punch increased a lot when I put the new bridge on. The B improved a lot. I love that bass. I will NEVER sell it.

    Nice grab, man.
  8. Yeah, I'm fairly sure it is rosewood or pauferro (which IIRC is a type of rosewood.)

    I think it may just be the lighting, because the close up shot isn't quite as purple.

    Normally I don't like the black Fenders, but they can't help but look good with tortoise shell pickguards.

    Fantabsti- er, fantastic bass! ;)

    The only B string I've ever played and liked was on my MIM Deluxe jazz. With a better premamp it would kill.
  19. as for how b-strings play on fenders, i bought a Fender MIA jazz deluxe used about 3 years ago and everything seemed like it was in great shape, and to be honest it probably was for the most part in very good shape. all the strings played great but i have always felt like the b-string is by far the weakest of them. i love my bass, the tone is INCREDIBLE, but i had to do a pretty decent amount of fine tuning on the b string before i thought it wasnt too shaky and how i wanted it to feel. whether the shaky b-string was the result of it not being a new instrument or not is beyond me. i probably should just replace the bridge but all the other strings sound so good...and i'm really lazy/cheap.
