It is amricaine, a round of jazz, a shaped body a little curious, a pick-guard no less curious change by a type Jazzbass on mine (as the beginning it only covers the micro jazz, and is different from that of the photo).
It has a precision micro + micro jazz. The microphone is a button secitionn 3 positions: P, P or J + J. a volume a tone.
It is passive, but with good output.
Easy, easy ... simple, enjoyable.
Gnralement I leave in the P + J is the sound the most varied broadest spectrum.
The handle is like Jazz Bass, so quite late.
It just does its job, classic and effective. It is a passive, and settings rather limited, but the sound is good. Works well slap, sound fatter P bass, sustain.
Well, it's a Fender, but not a precision or a jazz. A hybrid criront some sacrilege to the other in mixed genial. given the small number of years in the catalog, the former prevailed. Remains a real Fender bass made in United States ...
I customizes by changing the electronic (bypass active / passive, BT EMG preamp). I rajoutt a microphone!
The neck is super fine, much more that a musicman. Excellent and super comfortable.
The bass is quite lgre but it's not a featherweight either!
I added duncan antiquity pickups precision and jazz bass (the two so we had to dig). The sound is beautiful and the difference with the original pickups United States is obvious. It is richer, bigger, more ....
has really sounds like a vintage fender bass now!
This is my bass prfre. In fact I am a bass and a precion a jazz bass in a Grace to 3 microphones plus a combination of its incredible.
Very low "original" and very rare! We find little in France (a chance !!!)... Side features: Lower U.S. made between 1990 and 1992 by Fender, with a more aggressive body, (the look) that the jazz bass and a handle for a conventional low U.S.. 2 microphones "passive": a micro precision (micro sleeve) and a jazz bass (at the bridge, a three-position switch: micro precision, the two ensembles, jazz bass pickups. A volume and tone ... We can do more simple! 21 frets (although that is the standard Fender and then it is good for bass players!) but are very thin (I know they are thinner than my old Fender JB).
Look for: we love it or hate it ... I bought it for the price (a US bin at that price ...)! But by reviewing the video of a concert: I thought "my god !!!"... In fact low "ugly" old design, is a Squier Precision current ...
Channel: same as Standard Jazz bass!
The big advantage of this low:
weight! It is a pen (this is one of its strengths!), It is well balanced when standing on the cheek does not feel nearly low compared to other American standards ... And believe me after 3 hours was not back in two farted! Weight it looks at a Fender Stratocaster (guitar) is saying! For the rest ... Blah + + +
It cracks on all sides (jack, microphone ...)
Sound: Big question?? Say it is not versatile or vintage or precision or jazz bass ... In short, a mixture not very "sound", but has the advantage of being detected (My god this look!)
So A book for those who have back pain, knowing it will take a great preamp, a very good amp ... Short! € 1500 to provide work ...
If you really want to play this bass one day (after a wall decoration?)
- Provide change pickups, electronics, mechanical ...
- Avoid color "blind" since the look of the bass, do not miss it!
- Have a low replacement (a "true" if possible!) To ensure the concert ...
- You can keep at home and low exercise ...
- You can save € 200 and buy a Squier Affinity Precision (new!) That sounds 10 times better ...
Sound: a real question ... In my opinion, something medium, well not really ... Hard to describe ... Personally, I understand that Fender stopped producing this low pretty quickly! There must be an error in the design, manufacturing process ...
Purchased in 2006, I kept a few days ... Note: hard sell!
In trying to repeat, I quickly realized the blow!
I can give my true opinion on this bass, having sold some years ... LOW is the worst I had!
In fact watching her look: This gives the exact idea of the sound it produces! (A horror ...)
In summary: If you plan to buy, fly away ... Or hang on the wall (where it sounds best !)...
The chance is that they are rare (thank you our ears) so more or less easy to sell ... According to those who are tempted, I wish them a lot of courage to find the correct (in the studio to record: Forget).
Everything has been said ...
Mine, bought secondhand in 1998 for a song has a bridge Shaller more clumsy than the standard fender. Only one regret: the jack is located on the plate ... Better to use an angled jack.
the look is very ... 90's. Y'en who love to hate others, but regardless of the opinion that we have on the design of this one: the comfort of this one is unanimous!
This handle is a feast: although quite late, my big paws to navigate easily. A real motorway.
Access to the most acute is not being done (20 cells only) but this one is better than a Precison.
This bass is very light and falls well under the hands: no need to strap sponge to avoid being damaged wrist.
In summary with two knobs and switch are one moves from jazz to its accuracy: the versatility personified.
It is suitable for all styles: the sound of the JP90 is comfort and sound are the only subjects on which metal buddy buddy root'n'reggae agree ...
I personally prefer the sound sounding good round: according to the settings of the amp can go from jazz to dub sound Slapp ...
Coupled with my Trace Elliot 4001 (made in UK) assisted by a 4x10 Genz Benz United States: there's no photo, you can play everything.
10 years ago she got ... I like its ease of play its sounds, its versatility. Although I am not too fan of the color (bright red) I learned to get used to it. And if I have to play this bass is not to fashion shows!
The price at which I bought is ridiculous because the seller did not know what he was selling (I shop in chopper style "easy cash"). For about just over € 300 I am left with the bass, a set of strings, and a cover Warwick ...
I must admit that I probably would do this choice: this bass sounds great!
Today it is listed more than € 600 and even at that price I think it is still worth the shot: A real Fender United States at this price, do not hesitate!
