    hard to beat a sunburst fender jazz!!! iconic

    put some flats on it if you want a vintagey upright thunk/pre slap n pop

    tho larry graham who invented the slap, pretty much... used flats early on


    congrats & enjoy


    cheers

    Thanks Neatomic. Came from the store, took some pics, oiled the fretboard, and nothing more to do. Even the string height and intonation was perfect. Out of the box classic jazz bass sound and perfect setup. I am also a pre slap player. Just started to play non stop. Have three P basses wtih flats so will keep this with rounds for 6 months for a change and then as always happens with me will end putting flats on it. Today the man covered was Jerry Jemmott. The greasebucket tone circuit is great. So much instrument for the money.

    I've always loved the tones available from a J-bass. Congratulations, and play it in good health!
    Best regards, k

    Thanks K. Yes, classic and inmediately recognizable tones. As a P bass player since my youth (had a USA Am Std jazz in the nineties but sold it in 2009) today spent most of the time with the bridge pickup and combinations from there. This bass is simple but delivers true classic sound.

    hmm

    I have a 2008 J-Bass.

    Good ax too.

    Except the dud notes between B C D on the G string.

    I've asked other bassists whether they've had similar hassles.

    And usually the answer is sort of something like 'play around it', which I've always done. But there are a lot who say 'what problem?'

    I previously had a Jazz/Precision hybrid with exactly same problem.

    dead notes within the first 5 frets can be a sign of the neck being too flat..try adding some bow with the trussrod...

    2nd thing would be to check the nut slot height..may be cut too deep

    cheers
