Very impressed with my SX jazz 5

  1. I bought this bass just because it was cheap and its almost become my main player lataely. I dropped an audere jz3 preamp in it and it sounds great. It kinda shocked me actually how good it sounds. Sweet!

    Nice looking bass. What is the string spacing like on these?
     
  3. Feels like 17.5 maybe 18??

    Old headstock! Did you get it used? Was it modded or tweaked in by previous owner? New pickups?

    My only gripe with mine is single coil hum.

    Mine is great too. Never expected it to be. Many here on TB say it can't be so. Mine sounds exactly like a pre CBS jazz, $177.00 shipped!

    Congrats! Welcome to the world of SX! :cool:
     
  7. I modded one to the heavens a few years back. Also dropped in the Audere. What a great bass for the coin!

  9. I'm amused by those that love to troll threads they disagree with. I don't understand the rationale of feeling you *need* to post just to make your disagreement known.

    I've had two 4 string SX Jazzes that were both really nice. Sounded very very good too. The LPB one was gorgeous too. Gigged them many times with no issues.

    Would like to try a 5'er one day.
     
  12. Nuh uh!!!

    You mean like how you are doing exactly the same thing?

    My apologies to those who are tired of my affliction, but when I see SX and LPB in the same post I CAN'T HELP MYSELF!! I LOVES me some SX LPB:

    One can reasonably say SX build quality can be hit/miss, but one thing is certain, they nail classic Fender J tones to a 't', better than some Squier variants.
     
  18. How so? I own several SX basses (along with several multi-thousand dollar basses) and I am sharing my similar enjoyment with my basses. You, on the other hand, came in just to stir crap. It's what you do.
     
  19. Too bad that color hasn't come back yet.
