I played it a bit yesterday after tightening up the bridge pup's volume control. Once I had that set in place, I changed the strings, tuned it, and gave it life. The tones on this Standard are really pretty good.
It's kinda' what I've always thought about a brands' electronics mating up well with it's own kind. Fender to Fender matching up. It's an old theory of mine, as stupid as it may be, it just seems that way. The Rumbles are a forereal player's amp.

I have noticed certain instruments will sound differently with different amps, sometimes positively, sometimes negatively, and not always consistently with those results. There's other factors involved like speakers, strings, cabs, and sometimes the time of day. :P I think it comes down to trial and error and luck.

Luck does seem to get into the equation more than about anything else, doesn't it?

Funny how I like this Standard in place of say an Am. Std., or now Am. Pro. I still have to try out an Am. Pro.'s new style frets.

I take it then you're not going to keep this one if you happen to like the American Pro?

No, I can't justify the higher price for the similar playing Jazz. I do like the older style Medium, Wide frets, on both the Standard, and USA GL Jazzes. I will keep it also to go a long the USA GL Jazz when I reacquire another one.

Yeah, you can buy two Standards for the price of one of those American Pros. I'm assuming there are some extras with the price, but are they worth it? I guess that's up to the individual and what their needs are.

I can deal with the differences between the two. Mainly since this Standard is good, with just that loose pot when I got it.

I did some serious playing with the Standard Jazz today. HIGHLY Road Rex Approved. A swift playing Jazz. It was tough to stop playing, but time slipped away for today. It really is a good Jazz. I like it with the Nylons, and the rest of the way it shipped from the factory is the way I prefer it also. The Rumble 500C is doing good sounds too! It'a win, win.

Sounds good. 8) So you think this bass is a keeper?

Yeah. I like playing this Standard. It got me to thinking, I can use a Fretless to go with this Standard. I believe another Fretted Maple Jazz for me at least, would be a waste. So there is an Am. Pro. Fretless Jazz in transit.
