    I am really impressed with what you get for the price. The bridge is very solid and not cheap looking. The neck is a little wide, but not too thick for me. I'm not an active guy by nature yet nice to have the option if needed. In the long run, made a decent deal

    Xaviere (Guitar Fetish / GFS) Jazz Bass. Added the bridge and pickguard + Rotosounds so now it’s a Geddy Lee clone :thumbsup:

  9. It's a really fun bass to play! It took a bit of time to get used to the body shape (and is somewhat awkward to play while sitting down) but the neck is nice and chunky. I've been wanting to swap out the pickups but haven't gotten around to it. Super cool bass!

    How is it? Haven't been many Xaviere bass threads. I've been curious about them.

    Brought the L2500 tribute out tonight for a change of pace. For a "cheap" bass it really sounds amazing!

  13. It did! I was disappointed at first because I wanted to original dual humbucker layout that Gibson used in the '70s but then I realized how much versatility there is with a P/J configuration.

    Welcome to TB,

    How different (or similar) are the sounds coming out from those two, given that both have the same electronic configurations?

    They are both bone stock and both are currently strung with D'Addario 50-105 tape wounds, with the P pickup Ibanez seems to have a smoother fuller tone and the Squire has a bit of bite, and the J pickup in Ibanez is soft and sweet while the Squire sounds thin to me, I don't use it in the mix. I don't think they are bad, just not my preferred tones. I may drop in some Duncans to see how much it changes. I typically reach for the Ibanez first.

    The necks are where the big differences are, the Talman has a fairly wide chunky neck, and the Jag is thin and narrow. I have the Jag set up with a higher action for more aggressive play and the Talman set up on the edge of being too low for mellow play.

    Fit and finish the Talman is better, everything is tight with no gaps or imperfections, the Squire is very good but next to the Ibanez it just falls a wee bit short.

    Impressive for sure, you do know there are other companies making basses right?
