All, I'm thinking of this bass, I won't tell you what sound I have in mind at the beginning, becuase I don't want to affect you feedback. Since we don't have a "soundshop" ssoftware, you're my best resource to cross check my expectations... I won't hold anybody responsible in the end if it doesn't sound like I wanted ! Here the specs: Jazz Body Mahogany body wood Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard 2 Dark star pickups (one in precision sweespot, one closer to bridge) Vol/Tone/Vol/Tone controls (or Vol/Vol/Tone) I'm thinking of keeeping it fully passive but if you think that there could me a preamp that could match it, let me know! Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!
