Man, I am listening to From Within(with Michel Camillo) and I am wondering how does Anthony Jackson do to have that kind of jazz tone.

I know, it's probably a Fodera 36'' scale but man, if it's that's the only way to get that jazz tone Ima get me one!

Gotta love him!

Yeah, Anthony Jackson is pretty unreal! He's one of those players that is absolute perfection in his playing! Wink

Wow that's beastly playing.

The tone's all in his hands. You could probably get the same sound out of a Fender if you studied his technique and approach if you wanted to. But you wouldn't have all those strings and half a rainforest worth of wood...

Yeah, I already did that technique, but doing it on my viola don't get that jazz tone. And I am a big Fender anti-fan because of the necks. But maybe I'll check up another bass when the tax return will enter!

Ah yeah I understand. One man's trash. When I think of a good neck the first thing that pops into my mind is Charvel or Ibanez.

Love getting money back...got a fat tax return this year! Very Happy

Am I the only bass player on earth who isn't very picky about necks? It influences how I play a bit, sure, but I don't find my Spector's neck (quite thick) any harder or easier to play than my Kramer's (which is thinner than an Ibanez soundgear).

i don't like the shape of spectors more than the width.

I agree. Every time I've picked up a Fender P, it's felt just right...even Squiers feel that way. That's why I want to get a nice one so bad.

I've owned basses with necks of all shapes and sizes. 5 string basses aside, I haven't come across a neck that I absolutely hated--that I can think of. There was one really uncomfortable Jazz bass neck I played on for about a week, but I liked it by the time I was through. I do know, however, that there are things I can pull off on my Charvel 3B that I can't on my Ibanez Roadster. Sometimes one neck doesn't fit the way I feel, but the next day it might fit what I expect of it perfectly.

my "worst" neck was a jazzbass copy with a nasty neck and I hated it...BUT, if that was the only bass I owned, I would get used to it, and everything else would seem unplayable.

( glad that never happened to me ) Smile
