How do you like your Junior Jet? I’ve been eyeing them up. I love a short scale bass.
Love it! I had been wanting to add a short scale back into my collection and had been looking at building a PJ Jag kit that was similar to what I had before that I gave to my son. I tried a G2220 at a local store and really liked the tone and feel of it. I didn't like the color of that one, though...pink is not a color I want on a bass. Ordered this one from Sweetwater and have been very pleased with it. I still love it even after all the hullabaloo about the pickups not being the advertised humbuckers, but just single coils.
It is rather odd, though, tone wise. The pickups do produce a strange chorus-like effect if both pickups are on. It is there when each pickup is soloed, but very very faint. I actually love the sound, as it isn't overbearing on the tone of the bass. I would think it was just mine, but the one that I tried in the store did the same thing, with an entirely different kind of amp, so...who knows.
My UPS guy is a hoot. Always jolly. Asked me what type of business "you have in there" warehouse
without sinage. Also a 16' cab over diesel out front. Told him sound company and I'm a musician.
He thought I lived there. As I get frequent deliveries.
there has been a bit of controversy with the Jr Jets recently... I wonder if it has to do with the pickups as with others, though they were just reporting having two bridge single coils...
Finally got around to taking a photo of them together.
Yeah, they were advertised as being mini humbuckers...for YEARS. Then it came out that they were actually single coils. Further inspection showed that they were not even a set where one was reverse wound for hum cancelling when both pickups were selected. Either way, I still love the sound of this little bass. It is very unique amongst my others basses.
Is that the whole enchilada?? I mean is the board the same either laminated ziricote or with the frets pressed in? Never handled it myself so I'm curious. It looks like really tight rosewood. Pretty hard stuff?
That is a Warmoth SSB 32" w/ Gold frets on a Ebony board . I put the Luminlay in . It originally had no side dots . I like no face inlay sometimes but no side dots , forget it . lol . It's very stable and it's seems pretty darn hard too . It's oil and waxed finished . It's very smooth .
I really like that bass a lot. Considerably more than just quite a bit.
It's off the charts . It's a Sugar Pine body , Finished by Paul Slagle with a PNW pup in it . It's just one of those good ones .
Off to the practice lair...whooooosh.
Thanks man. It's an AO50s Precision I bought that was originally Aztec gold. I loved that but sadly, due to poor prep the finish started coming of in sheets and not in a cool way but it is such a great specimen I HAD to keep it. Marty Bell made it all happy again and I put some Fralin vintage overwounds in it. It's my number one P bass.
Is that a roasted neck ?
No, an unlit room lol. Just natural sun light and shadows.
