    WoW! I like it very much! Congratulations!!!

    Where did you get your stacked knobs jazz control plate?
     
  6. Thanks guys, it's such an under utilised colour scheme IMO, but I've seen a few of the Fender pro jazzes in the same do-up now too.

    @bassman74 I ordered the parts online, mostly from guitarpartsresource and put it together myself. There are lots of options for prewired harnesses online though.

    I recorded a little sound clip for those interested... fingerstyle, labella black tapes. neck pu full, bridge pu 75%, straight into hartke lh500 with 115 cab, cell phone sound recorder. It picked up a lot more of the string/fret sounds (acoustically) than would be apparent in a band setting but it gives you an idea of what I'm going for.
    :bassist:

  7. I like that A LOT. :thumbsup: Mine developed a gooched up neck so mine is also an assembly at this point with CS pickups and a MIA neck I got in a different deal, but she lives on, better than ever. IMG_20190804_161102.

    Custom shop 60s pickups by any chance? How do u find them, im gonna put them on my jazz hopefully the arrive in stock at a local bass store before end of september.

    From my understanding, they really take the essence of the jazz bass sound, and just make it better! A big fat bass, punchy midrange and clarity in these pickups. From the demos ive heard, they are a real, full yet balanced sounding pickup, in all 3 positions, tone open or closed. Its got a strong, warm growl and really brings the best out of the bass.

    It works for me. I just clicked on it, it downloaded just fine, then I played it in VLC Media Player.
     
  15. Yes they are. I've got 5 Jazzes, none are slouches but the 2 with those pickups are my favorite sounding. I highly recommend them. They have the Jazz "quack" but bigger everywhere.

    I have a few Jazzes that are all different in character, but a bass I own that sounds like a classic nasally (quack) J on steroids is my '68 Coral Deluxe Bass (post-Dano w/lipstick singles). The B pu is in about the same location from the bridge but the N pu is closer to the neck. Nails that nasally J tone big time! It favors mid/treble but can deliver enough bottom to sound like a bass - kind of my preferred territory these days.
     
  17. Just out of curiosity, what does you guitarist use? I have a Jazz/Precision theory and I'm curious given the sound description you mentioned with that bass.

    A modified 70's Strat through a Fender tube amp. I lean towards bass tone with distinct definition of the note but old-school fat, so I use a pick mostly and palm mute for colour/texture. To help keep the 'bass' in the mix, I use a 15" JBL live (Ampeg B-15N) and an 18" Carvin in our rehearsal space.

  20. Gotcha, thanks for the detailed reply. I really appreciate it. I'm always interested in how others approach dynamics and sonic space tonally.
