Hi everyone, I have a jazz bass made up of a squier body, a standard fretted replacement neck, a vintage bridge, and CS60s pickups. The bass came together because I had replaced the fretless neck on my P-bass, and decided I would buy an inexpensive loaded squier vintage modified body to use with the old fretless P-bass neck. Well, I ended up putting the old neck back on the P-bass, buying a new fretted neck for the jazz, and continued modding the jazz bass until I ended up with the bass I described above. I really enjoy playing the jazz, but now I have the urge to get rid of the basswood body and buy a proper alder body. Part of me thinks it was a mistake to swap out the squier pickups, because really nothing was wrong with them and they had a nice tone. I like the CS60s a lot, but the versatility of a jazz bass isnt' quite there because a lot of the bassier tones sound muddy and I'm wondering if it's because of the basswood body not being the best fit for the CS60s. (I also feel like the CS60s are a bit noisier, and whereas the squier pickups had a noticeable noise-canceling effect when both pickups were at the same volume, I don't quite get the same effect with the CS60s). ANYWAY, I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on whether the Alder will really make much difference. I am looking for a lighter bass, but I also prefer the general feel of the alder wood (like on my vintage P-bass). Also, since I have spare pickups, a fretless neck, bridge, and pickguards lying around, I was thinking of making another jazz bass out of the basswood body. Thanks for any insights!
