Oh, OK. I was wondering where in the hell did you dig this thread up from, since I didn't remember seeing it before. :P The funny thing is that they've had basses called Jazzes, but have had the P & J pickup configuration.

When I get desperate, that's when I'm the most dangerous. A last minute decision to name it something.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the Duff McKagen model a PJ bass with a Jazz neck?

Since this was a former 4003 Jetglo thread, I must admit that I don't regret using the 4003 to get the Spl. Ed. Dlx. PJ, and a hard shell case for it.
There, we have a new post that covers the 4003, and a FENDER PJ WITH A JAZZ NECK. And just how did that happen? Image

I think it was based on one of those Power Jazz Bass Special models that they had back in the late 80's. I remember a music store, I used to frequent, had a turquoise colored one at the time. It was like this one: Image

Thats what I thought. I think he got one with what was at the time a weird factory defect. It hd an asymmetrical neck profile kinda like an Ibanez I can't remember which model but it had 2 big humbuckers. Or the Steve Bailey Jazz that I'm playing now. So his pro model has that same weird neck shape.

Are you talking about the Ibanez SRX basses? They had two humbuckers on them.

Yes. I couldn't remember the line name. But the necks on them are shaped kinda like an airplane wing. It's thicker under the lower strings and thinner under the higher strings making it more ergonomic, shaping it more like the joint between your thumb and index finger when in playing position.

I played on a single pickup version of that bass in a shop, when I went in to look for a replacement for a MIM Precision Bass that I had. The pickup on that thing was loud as hell, and it seemed to play nice, but I wound up getting a Peavey Zodiac bass, because it was cheaper, and I liked the way the neck felt. Maybe I should have went with that one, in retrospect, but that's water under the bridge now. :roll:

I almost bought one when I was still playing 5 strings. I tried one but wasn't looking for a new bass at the time.

I sure do like the Precision with the Jazz pup backing it up. A good full tone.

Yeah, that's actually a large part of my sound, or I've used that combination quite a bit. There are 4 basses in the collection that have that, then there is the Jazz, and the violin bass. Acoustic bass, too. I suppose you could count that one, since you can plug it into an amp, which I've only done once, to test it and see if it was working. It actually sounded pretty good through the Fender, but I'm not even sure when or if I'll even be using that one. I suppose I do have it, in case I do.
