To sum it up quick I’ve grown tired of the sound of one of my jazz basses it’s a Performance 5 string (A higher end boutique fender clone) it sounds great as is I’ve had it for a few years and my ears have outgrown it I guess you could say. I’m looking for a different sound and normally I just buy a new bass that fits the tone I’m looking for but I’ve become addicted to higher end basses and I’m trying not to spend money on another as I already have an F bass build on the way. I really think a sadowsky pre could do the job of what I’m looking for. I hate to say it but I’m looking for a tighter Marcus Miller sound that’s a hair more modern just a big fat ballsy Jazz tone. I’m pretty sure the sadowsky could do it but my only reservation is that I put the preamp in don’t like it put the original pre in and it’s not quite the same. Also on the table is selling the bass for a sadowsky I already have a few friends who want the bass. Also from my understanding the sadowsky pre is pretty colored which I don’t mind is that true? What would you do?
