  1. I have a fender jazz bass and a fender squier both in good condition. Should i practice my fender jazz at home and play with my band with the squier or practice at hoem with the squier and play with my band with the jazz?

    use both in both situations. If i was in your shoes i would tear the frets on outta the squier and then use em both. but thats just what i would do.

    Play whatever feels right at that moment. I have about 7 basses & I play what every feels right for every rehearsal or gig.

    When I'm at home, I play alittle of everything.
     

  6. FROM THE TALKBASSFAQ

    De-fretting a bass involves removing the frets from the neck, thus creating a fretless bass. This is a difficult process, and anyone unsure of their skills should have the process done by a professional. If someone doesn't know what they are doing, there is potential to seriously screw up a bass guitar. For those do-it-yourselfers, however, here are some links about the process:

  8. practice on the real jazz
    play the real jazz
    sell the copy and get a different style bass or the defret idea could be useful...
    i wont suggest a P
    but a 51 reissue might be in order.;)
