    This might sound stupid and I'm sure that there are millions of answers out there but I'm looking to buy a jazz bass that will give me an option of that old fat/woody vintage tone and the option of something different when needed. Being stuck in the wilds, trying everything isn't an option so I need some advice to narrow down my search.


    • Fender American Delux
    • Ditto standard
    • G&L JB / JB2
    • Lakland

    Help please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But, saving a bit while stayin' on the edge of your sound requirements, Fender American Special's greasebucket circuitry can surprise you.

    I have a US made G&L JB2 and it is a fantastic bass in both sound, quality and workmanship. I owned an AM dlx jazz but the active electronics just weren't my thing - It was a very nice bass too...

    I know that used G&Ls, for some reason, do not hold their value all too well on the used market - they can usually be picked up for a fairly good price
