My favorite tone on a JJ is both pickups evenly balanced. Obviously with a PJ, you don't have that tone.
2  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Lowest Recommended Battery Voltage? on: May 12, 2011, 02:36:22 PM
Regarding the battery in a Sadowsky bass, is there a recommendation as far as what the lowest voltage the battery can be before replacing it?

Am wondering why pickup location of Fender Jazz basses was changed sometime in the 70s and what exactly changed?

The location of the bridge pickup was moved closer to the bridge because the pickup stuck out from the bridge cover they were using at the time.  By moving it closer to the bridge, the entire pickup was covered by the cover.

I've been using position #4; 800Hz, Q=1.7 since I got the bass in November.  I've been using it for solos and featured parts to cut thru the mix.  That said, I do wish the frequency was a little higher.  I'm a high-mids man and would like a boost in the 1000 - 1300 Hz region.

I am going to try each setting for a bit to see which one I'll keep long term but #4 was the one I first gravitated to.

WOW!! That is going to be beautiful!

Thanks.  I saw that body while at their shop.  It looked too good to pass up.

I made a few changes after the initial order but I think I'm all set now.  It's just the waiting.

Seeing I paid this off last week, I thought it was time to post it.

With my heart set on a 24 fret JJ (or possibly PJ), I went to Brooklyn for a sound sample.  After a "quick" three hours, my mind was made up.  It was a Will Lee all the way!    Wink

The specs are to be:

Will Lee with flamed maple/swamp ash body finished natural in lacquer
Flamed maple fretboard
Hum canceling pickups
Chrome hardware
Tort pickguard
Light SS Blue Label strings

And here's the body:

Are there plans to offer roasted flamed maple necks along with the birdseye?
