FDP Forum / Fender Product Reviews / Player Series Jazz Bass



Dec 19th, 2018 09:23 AM   Edit   Profile  

I bought a Fender Jazz bass (The new Player Series)
I’m noticing that it’s a very bright / glassy sound. I plugged into a Acoustic 15W bass Amp and a Ashdown 30W for testing . I don’t recall this tone from the earlier MIM Jazz Basses. I called Fender support today and they verified its Alnico 5 pickups. When I turn down the tone the bottom end is very thin.. Funny .. last night I played an Affinity Jazz at a local GC not knowing what pickups were in that bass and it had the total bottom end i was use to hearing same with the VM .. Any help with the Fender Player Series ??
