Fender Jaguar Bass

It looks like the Jaguar is being discontinued. Musicians Friend is now selling them as a closeout items for less than they were priced when they first came out.

 

And now there are four color choices instead of just two.

 

I'm going to go look in the couch and under the seats of the car and see if I can find $600 in loose change. Wish me luck!

It has a Geddy Lee sized neck and pups, no BAII Bridge and active electronics. Pups switch on or off, no individual volumes, and has series/parallel switch. Overallv very very versatile. Some have problems with noise but a quick fix of lifting the pickguard and adding copper tape between the cavities seems to fix this for most people.

Knobs and switches?

 

They are:

2 On/Off slide switches (one for each pickup)

1 Series/Parallel slide switch (when both pickups are on)

Master Volume, Master Tone knobs

Preamp Treble Control Wheel, Preamp Bass Control Wheel, Preamp On/Off slide switch

 

Peace.

I was cool with all the knobs and switches on this bass in the studio, but there's no way I'd want to deal with all that stuff onstage.

 

Too many variables means too many potential chances for the instrument to go kerplooey in the live performace area. I would take this bass with just one knob on it. It should be set up to do everything, be marked "Awesome" and be stuck at 10.

Its dead simple what you do with knobs & switchs - all on all full up all the time!!

 

Not on a Jag. All full on the peamp wheels = gastly. For me, it's series mode, passsive tone dimed, and up about 1/3rd on the active bass wheel, none on the active treble. (these are boost only, BTW)

I like the looks of that Big Al bass. I don't have that kind of money around now. It's probably a good thing that I haven't seen one in a store yet. I suspect (hope?) that the neck profile is too big.
