  1. Status basses - advice

    Low action is great for me...I play fast fingerstyle with a light touch. Neck stability is also very important - I'm a bit paranoid about that since a Jaydee supernatural that I owned back in the day developed a terminal back bow. I think JD had received a rogue batch of mahogany at that time and I was one of the unlucky ones.

  3. Status basses - advice

    Brilliant reply...I really appreciate your input and the kind offer. Very helpful indeed.
  4. Status basses - advice

    I've recently found myself being drawn towards Status basses, in particular the headless variety. I had the chance to buy the all graphite (series 2000?) version back in the 80's on a couple of occasions...but instead opted for a Wal and Vigier respectively. I'm currently at the stage of seriously considering ordering a 5 string S2-Classic (bolt on neck); I really love the visual combination of wood and graphite. I am unable to get "hands on" - so Status bass owners what can I expect as a Status owner? Any opinions gratefully appreciated as in fairness they are not exactly inexpensive instruments.
  5. Two new Adam Clayton Signatures - Purple Sparkle!

    Oh good, yet more Fender signature models...oh good...
  6. Fender Marcus Miller V truss rod area of effect?

    Oh man, I hate it when this happens. I had a Jaydee Supernatural back in the day - the neck developed a terminal back bow of considerable proportions. Heartbreaking. Sadly this is the perils of wood...you just never know how it will behave regardless of how well seasoned.

  11. Identifying jazz bass body

    Just looks like a bog standard, edge laminated Fender or Squire jazz body made from cuts of lightweight Alder (with a plain grain) to me.
