What Bass (under $1000 USD) has the smoothest, Jazziest tone?
How do you define smooth and jazzy? How about a recording to go by?
something like the bass sound from Jack Johnson, David Crowder Band.
Jack Johnson's bassist (I just forgot his name) plays a Hofner I believe. If I were you, I would probably go with a P-bass with flatwounds.
Hmm.. P bass with flats is definitely smooth, but it's got a bit of a chunky, thumpy tone. A Jazz with flats is VERY smooth. One can argue the P tone is better, but a J + flats tone is definitely sweet.
Large mouth or striped.
Small mouth to be exact.
fretless J bass with TI Jazz flats?? try didfferent stuff out, see what works for you.
warmoth fraken jazz with fralins and j-retro (just to match the price range)
