There is some presumption that they are based largely on the Genz Benz amps, anyone looked inside any? I liked the Contour amps which I'd guess these are the same as but in a new box.
Fender acquired GB, GB disappears from the market, Fender releases new lightweight range of amps. It's an easy conclusion to draw, but I can't say I'm an expert, nor have I cracked open my amp to have a look!

I'm guessing I could always plug in my Markbass extension cab if more volume was required?
Definitely for your bigger gigs. I believe the 500 bizarrely operates at 350watts at 8 Ohms, so you need an extension cab to get all the juice out of it.
As an aside, I love the Rumble amps. I bought one of the previous gen 15's after two similarly priced Ampegs crapped out on me, and then upgraded to the new Rumble 40 (lighter, XLR out, 3 preamp voices, 4-band EQ, and built in overdrive) which I see no need to upgrade. It's a cracking amp.

It did indeed, at the Herts Bass Bash, and it wasn`t a close call - it won by miles.
That's my bass! There was some stiff competition too!

It`s not too heavy Dave, but not a lightweight either. I`ve not got any scales but in comparison to my 2008 Precision, which I know is about 8.8lbs, it feels a bit heavier so I`d put it at 9.3lbs at a guess.
So somewhere between your '08 and your '78?
Nice. What's the weight like Lozz?

I fitted the Stinger preamp yesterday and it's transformed the bass, in fact I've put my amp levels back and it's very articulate too, I'm glad I did it.
Nice work. How was the fitting of it? Easy enough to do?

Woooow that is lovely!
Very nice. I had one eye on that in the marketplace, it's lush!
Nice! Look forward to seeing/hearing it!

Love the contrast between the body and the neck. Congrats!

That is lush. Have a bump on me.

I have a solution to it all!
Unscrew the plate, and flip it around, and screw it down again. Voila! The pots and the writing are the correct way around
We have a winner.
Can anyone share their experiences of the 75 Jazz copy? Incredibly tempting at that price. I had a J&D for a little while which was ace, but I'm sort of sold on the ash body on the natural model, and having Wilko pickups in there is reassuring.

Thanks Dave... it does a bit. I could remove the Squier logo and write something illegible with a Sharpie - that would do it.
Instant uplift in value of 300%

Perfect for Daft Punk
Yes! This is killer.
Looks like a cracking bass for the cash! I love the scratchplate as well. Looks kind of boutique-y!
I'm up to 4 basses now - the rack is in the pic below, with the most recent addition sitting front and centre.
Fender Deluxe Active Precision (my original, 10 years old)
Fender Mark Hoppus P (nearly a year old, my main bass these days)
Squier Bass VI (an indulgence, cool to play, looks killer)
Yamaha Attitude Special (the Taiwanasaurus, newest acquisition)
I still can't see any pictures

There's a new sunburst in Sounds Live for £799
Stop it! I just filled the last free space in my rack!

I give him a 'subscribed'. Good player, nice range of covers.
Welcome! I also rock a Mark Hoppus signature bass as my main axe. Fantastic look, and amazing tone. Enjoy Basschat!
On is off and off is on...of course.
I played a grand total of 3 gigs last year, only 1 as a bassist. I want to deliver a 100% increase on that figure this year

And yes peoples, I know the thought of me getting all misty over a Jazz bass sounds incredulous, but I was just so knocked out by the sound that I`ve got to try it and see if it works for me.
I'm amazed! First I open up a thread and hear you waxing lyrical about a non-Markbass, non-Ampeg rig, and now you're harking on about a Jazz? You used to be cool man
In all seriousness, if you heard something new that sounds better than what you've got, you'd be daft not to give it a go. That's why we're all here, right? Let me know how you get on, I've always loved the [i]idea[/i] of a jazz but never quite taken the plunge.
