Hey guys, It’s hard to believe that I haven’t posted anything since February! Life got a little hectic for me with work!
To update you, I still don’t have a great back up bass. When I say great, I mean a bass that feels great in my hands as well as sounds great. It seems to be pretty easy to make them sound like you want, but getting a bass that feels incredible is a more daunting task. The issue seems to be that I’ve been playing the same bass for over 6 years and I think my hand is just molded to that neck. My bass is also broken in extremely well, so I’m sure that plays a major role as well.
At any rate, I recorded some audio of another bass that I slightly upgraded. The bass is a Fender American Standard Jazz Bass V. Upgrades include Sadowsky Blue Nickel Strings and Nordstrand Nj5FS hum-cancelling pickups. I am once again very pleased with the Nordstrand pickups. Check out the audio and tell me what you think.
