Miliouz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The case of the century"

Fender PJ-555 Jazz Bass Special
Personal is one of the first version, with only the head painted black. The chevlaet is not the end of the slammer standard describes the other tests. As a second hand, he may well have been changed. Finally ...

Mine was défretté (for a pig by the way) or the rate of miserable ...

Otherwise, it's Japanese, serious, clean all this. Just to give you an idea, you say that the Fender logo on the handle is not a beast as a sticker on the United States and other CS, but a silkscreen ... It gives you an idea of ​​the seriousness!


The handle is rather tough (without going to a PB), 20 boxes. Personal I'm back with the handle while maple, ca suits him best.

The rest is standard. If the tona TBX is a bit confusing at first, and then you get used to it: ^ ^ toutafon épicétou


It's rock rock, with the PJ config was the best of two worlds. But in my case, in the neck position and come what may!
I use it with a Markbass mini 121p, coupled with a Tech21 Bass Driver DI (or something like that), with a filthy Bigg Muff from time to time. It gives her a powerful yet defined. But I'm a fan.


Bn is the bass of Duff so already, I'm not objective. But for the price and I choppée, charge and above (handle + decalco: € 165, paint, € 0) I made ZE good deal.

It was not a low current, well finished, with visual features (no pick, black head) and techniques (Linden for reason, TBX, Switch) that make it unique.

Fender PJ-555 Jazz Bass Special
Low factory in Japan (1985?). I paid 3000 francs
mine is a fretless, green / olive gray metallic.
head and neck black.
A micro PB, a JB at the bridge.
Tone Crant button in the middle.
handle end of JB


Comfortable handle, rosewood fingerboard trs enjoyable to touch.
Low-kind: you-you-branches cheeks, no more than 4 DIFFERENT sounds but beautiful sounds.


Its warm and round, trs versatile, lots of personality "fender", rather than some I've tried us.
I "Brad" vigier a passion, so every time the sound seemed cold and clinical cot!


I mantenance a Vigier Arpege fretless metal button, wooden handle, which sounds better and rounder than my former passion, but the fender was a "fender" and is different, simple and complmentaire, so I keep it.
quamitprix excellent report.

Fender PJ-555 Jazz Bass Special
Fender Jazz Bass Special 4-string passive
Basically: A round of Jazz Bass and Precision body (no pickguard)
Made in Japan
White finish nacrbr /> 20 frets / A micro PB / A micro JB
Easel that I describe as "vintage but cheap", a piece of tle fold and screws ... But hey it works (except when I'm hanging above the palm, is the least funny ...)
A micro volume, a toggle, a knob of Tone original and effective (he has a middle Crant and the opening of the cavity dedicates the electronics, is found to have two rsistives tracks: It's not a tone but a circuit that I think is called patent by Fender TBX)
This bass seems lgre, but as my No1 low PSE a tonne, this opinion may be false ...


Channel: Typical of the Jazz Bass, so enjoyable to me. Impeccable correctness, relatively low action.
This bass is trs sound "unplugged", it allows me to work out plans without all the stuff (although it's not the reason why I bought it!)
Access in Acute: Yes, it is good, but there are only 21 boxes, so it's not hard ... I would have AIM 3 more boxes.
Weight MODR it looks a bit too to head elsewhere (not one, but I appreciate the small default)
Sound: The original pickups seemed pretty average against the violin, I replaced them with joy by Seymour Duncan.


Much better with new pickups!
Otherwise, I am a fan of the configuration "JB + PB" which allows for both attacks mdiator frank and serious fine.


I bought this bass for one reason: It is the one used by Duff Mc Kagan, ex-Gun's N Roses and current Velvet Revolver. I am crazy about his sound, so with the same low, approaching me j'esprais (IDE classic admirer beginners ...)
My attitude has been volumes, but this bass has for her comfort and a games lgret particulirement compatible with a set of nergique scne.
This is my low back on scne, and my bass work "unplugged" home.
So I do not regret my choice!
