jazz jag!

smells like a jazz!

so we picked up a 2005 MiM Jazz Jag over the weekend.  it came on the cheap cuz the body is a tad rough. we guess at some point the body had some stickers on it.  when they were peeled off, the coating came off with it and the previous owner attempted to repaint. so it feels rough to the forearm. in reality, it looks fine from afar and the neck is super great. & that’s the most important aspect for us.  it plays really funky and gritty.  we dunno if most jazz/jags play that way or if its only this one with its sorted history.  we are tempted to make this into a “project” bass and see if we can tweak the pickups into providing more low end.  it really does play more like a “geetar” than a “bass” at the moment.  there is one sweet spot with both pickups set in a particular way. that should do for the time being.  we think this will be our “gig spare” and we’ll use it for a few songs in the current set that require a more high end funk sound (cuz this bass is great at that) and keep it handy in case something happens to our main bass of the night.  it is set up with a brand new set of D’addario lights & we shouldn’t let those go to waste just yet! 😉

its a looker!
