    Welcome! Love that Fender Jazz
    I have a fetish for Jazz basses. Of course I don't have one.

    Welcome to the forums!! Nice basses and guitars...particularly that
    '65 Jazz:naughty:

    I'm also more of a bass player at heart, but guitar ranks a very close second for me.

    Check out the "Bass Players Too" in the social groups section. It might be right up your alley.

    Thanks again everyone!!

    Yeah, she's a sweetheart. I originally got it to back up my T-Bird- after playing it a few times it became my #1. It's still my favorite bass to record with- it just fits so perfectly in the mix- but live it doesn't jump out like the G&L does. I don't play it out too often anymore- my main gig is a Stones "tribute" type band and it doesn't do that "thuddy" type sound too well- even with a mute and the tone rolled off.

    Interesting thing about it- from what I can tell, it used to be Fiesta Red, but it was very poorly refinished on New Year's Day in 1972. There's still the brush strokes clearly visible in the lacquer- but it's also part of the "charm" of the instrument- that the early 70s was a time when those natural colors were cool, and the owner of the bass back then was proud enough of his work to sign and date it. It's also cool that it was redone that shitty so that I'm not afraid to play it and wreck the finish...
