  1. d'ya reckon it'd be worth buying a std jazz and as i was planning add a p pickup to it like a stu hamm urge...or should i just wait until i find an urge 1, i havent played either of the urges, but i think id prefer the 1 because of the scale and preamp...but thoughts people...

    thoght id throw in a poll just for the sake of it

    i cant remember which urge i played, but i played great. felt like it had a 32 inch scale if that helps any, i didnt plug it in but its has the feel of the love child of a fender p, and a kubicki. :bassist: it was quite nice, probably one of the nicest fenders ive played.
     
  3. on a jazz bass a p pickup barley fits that wat i did and i love it :hyper: . i have it wired v/v/ then stacked volume and tone.
    i also have a kahler bass trem on it. if u dont got much money just get a jazz or a p.

    There's a MIM one on sale for 200 or 300 something over here at a new england chain.
     
  6. the urge 1 has the fenderised kubicki preamp and the 32" scale, and the urge two has a 34" scale and the horrible fender 3band eq preamp...i might email phil see if he's designed a full kubicki preamp replacement.....the only thing im skeptacal about the urge is that it'd be buying without trying...plus the urge 1 has some rather cool colors, like a baham green almost ;) , and a purdy purple

    if i was to get the jazz (which would probably end up more expensive) id change the control plate to a '62 and have two stacked pots v/v and v/t, hey ben, you cant post a pic can ya? :D , if it was to be a jazz, it'd be black with a chrome pickguard and white pup covers

    also there were 2 versions of the urge 1, a mexican, without the p pup, and the american which was like stu's

    mexican urge 1 - this ones one ebay now $100us, he say's "possible vintage" it'd have to be 15yo at the max, thats halfway there :D

    Why did they change it? The new Urge II looks cheap:scowl:
     
  8. well, this is from a video i downloaded from a guitar site about an interview with stu on the engines of creation tour with satch, this is when stu was using the prototypes of the urge 2, and i think the main reason, stu mentions this, that sales werent good enough on the urge 1, and people were complaining "i cant play a 32" scale, its not manly enough" but the urge 2 certanly aint cheap, it was around the $3500aus mark, but i like the looks of the urge 1 better, especially the lack of position markers
     
  9. im me on aim at monky119 to see pics of my fender.
