Its okay... but its not my favorite. Thats why it currently resides as my backup bass... or in the slim chance I need a 5 string.

i got a sweet Fender P bass that my cousin gave me. on his other one, he got custom flames on it, and it looks so cool. he's a music man, went to UNLV on a music scholarship, so he helps me out w/ some music/bass stuff. it's cool. his bass is a black Fender w/ green flames licking the body of it; it's so cool.

I can't stand playing low, it gets on my nerves. I don't like the tone at a low bridge setting. When I bought my new jazz bass, the bridge was SO LOW. I even mentioned it to the salesman and didn't offer to fix it for me, so I took it home and adjusted the bridge on it myself. A string broke, and I bought taperwound strings for it (bad idea by the way, taperwounds don't do well on fretlesses as I found out, a very expensive mistake too.)

well mine is not a fretless so i like the string action to be low, I have played a fretless and I'm not fond of low string action on fretless basses.

I also had my strings lowered when I first started playing. Right now I need to raise them again as I play too hard for the height they're at.

you might just need to adjust your truss rod, your neck might be too straight, every neck is supposed to be slightly concave to give it better action, hold your first fret and your last fret down and look at the 8th fret, if the string is too high or too low adjust the truss rod accordingly, I know I had to do a lot of stuf to my bass when i got it, I just now got all of the little kinks worked out of it and I've had it since halloween day.

Worst bass ever! I got it used, the only cool thing about it is the emg pickups. Its pretty ugly too, all gold hardware and a weird pearl pickguard, and a black body.... unfortunately i thought it was cool when i bought it. I think it would actually be alot better if i just got new strings and strung them right.


Performance Bass: Fender Jazz

This bass is great compared to my other piece o' junk. It actually belongs to my church, but i play it for sunday services.

I went to a music store in a town about half an hour away from here that deals warwick basses and played a few and decided that my fender jazz bass has better string action than the warwicks but he warwicks are active and sound better. but it just might be that I was playing on a 2000 dollar amp too, who knows.

how do you like your rogue amp? coz i hate mine. it sounds good on my ovation a/e guitar, but it sux on my bass guitar. complete waste of money.
oh yeah' i play a not so well know or high quality bass guitar, it's called Tanara TG. have no clue how much it's worth and it didn't sound that good either. So i upgraded the pick ups to an active seymour duncan lightnin' rods. now it sounds allot better.

Those pickups are probably worth more than the bass itself.
