    The humbucker in bridge position. I don't think SXs have ever had humbuckers of any kind, they've always been straight P, J, and P/J copies.

    I do believe they at one time also made EBMM copies. You may still be able to get them from the overseas distributors, just not from Rondo.

    Would have totally jumped on an SX Jag Bass if not for the SX 'dread'-stock...
     
  7. Yep... i actually see these now and then on Ebay.

    It's incomprehensible to me that someone would pass on this bass or any bass that in all other aspects is what the player desires because of the headstock shape.
     
  9. Me too -- but we're in the minority here, it seems.

    Exactly how I feel, too.... I hate that style.. Hell I'd be happier with a squire neck on it ;)

    I understand BUT there are just so many things you can do with a headstock - esp when it is 4 tuners on a side - that that SX style - and all the many others like it - is getting pretty common.

    I know, the rest of it says Fender and then you move your eyes up to the top ....

    Anyway, you can pay the $150 premium for the Squier ...

    I don't get it either. The shape of the headstock is way down on the list for reasons to get/not get a bass for me. All else being equal, if you would normally get an SX bass because you have owned and enjoyed them in the past, not getting one solely because they changed the headstock shape makes no sense to me.

    Make it a fiver with a tort pickguard and I may be buying my first SX...even though I don't dig the headstock all that much either.
     
  14. It's just so damn ugly though.
     
  15. Oh i know... it's more my round'a'bout way of rationalizing that i don't NEED another cheap-o bass and i should save up for nice basses now.

    However... the one bass type i do not have is a jazz... so maybe...

    I mean... headstock aside... this thing is so sexy http://www.rondomusic.com/ursa4rnpbu.html

  17. I have one, and it rocks. Very good quality and bang for the buck. I am dropping some delano pickups in because the output on the stock ones is low and I hate hum (the neck pickup isn't humcancelling). I'll be doing a more in depth review later. But as of right now, it has dethroned my 1980's P-bass and Warwick Corvette...

    Wow; does the bridge pup alone sound very MM like?

    It'd be nice to see a video with one of these basses. If it comes close to the MM tone, that would be one for the collection.
