    I just recieved it today. I bought from 73jbass( Thanks Mike!)

    It's in near mint condition, and has a Basslines MM pickup with the oem MEC J in the neck . also has a nice set-up although i'll probably lower the action a tad.
    Pics will come tonight!:bassist:

    i also gave it a run through at home but my rig does'nt do it justice. But I love the versatile eq possibilties that I did not have with my Smith.:bag:

  5. Mike is a cool guy. I bought the Ampegs from him this weekend. Super nice, he knows how to take care of his gear and his customer.

    Really wish I had the money for this bass though, I've been craving a Jazzman setup for a long while.

    Yeah, i had my eye on it as soon as he listed it.
    I thought for sure someone would have got it before I could sell my bass. I glad too have it.:bassist:

    Enjoy the JMan 5! You're right about the tonal possibilities. I was just thinking about how to describe the tone I prefer from mine. It ain't like setting a P-Bass that's for sure.

    Push/pull in (active)
    Coil switch in the "up" position
    Bass knob at 7/10
    Mid knob at 3/10
    Treble knob at 6/10
    P/up knob rolled 2/3 towards the MM

    Produces a nice warm and tight growl. With the coil switch in the middle you get a little less warmth and a little more aggressiveness.

    That setting is great for doing harmonics! ;)
    Thanks dog.
