This jazz bass...

  1. Sorry the pic is so huge. :D

    Well, I've finally decided on my next bass. It'll be my first 'real' bass, not some cheap one..like my Harmony.


    They have a sound sample...here:


    Eventually, my setup will be an Ampeg ba115, and a Sadowsky outboard preamp.

    Now...I just need a job..and some money... :D
  2. i love that bass. Its nice, i have a fender j MIM 4 string, its awesome. Iv played thoes at stores, they rock. But you know what??~?? iv never liked the fender clips. idk, they just play the most..idk stuff and it just sounds weair to me. its like..that sounds noting like what people would actually do or something. idk. not to mention, they only do slap and pull, so you have no idea how the finering sounds on that. But trust me, iv played them at stores and they sounds a TON better then the clip on that site.

  3. 1. Hey nice sig :D

    2. I know!! It's like..dammit..not all of us slap. I mean seriously, I don't care if they just finger a few scales, but get some fingering in there.

    Nice bass but personally, I'd rather build a Warmoth 5. :)

    What happened, I thought your parents were gonna buy you a Sadowsky 5 string?
  5. haha.

    1. I doubt that will happen. I'd have to get straight A's in Chemistry (almost failed Biology, damn nuclei's) and Trigonometry.
    2. If it does, it won't happen for another year
    3. Warmoth - gecko bass? I'd like to hear one...

    This was a Warmoth JAzz I built a couple of years ago & was my main bass (over my Spector NS-5) until I got my Sadowsky.

    This bass had all the characteristics of a great Jazz Bass. I built it as clost to a Sadowsky as I knew how. :) it had the EMG 40J's & an Aguilar OBP-1 taht sounded KILLER together & it SMOKED every Fender J I compared it to. but it weighed a TON.

    Here is a Gecko I built not long ago & I recently traded it with a TB member.

    My Current LaceWood Gecko has EMG 40's & an EMG BTC pre-amp & sounds very awesome, also.
