Jackson not really my thing but this looks quite cool for an active Jazz bass.

I dig all of it until you get to the bridge, which looks like the cheap thing that was on my Artist 5 string before I replaced it :rofl:

They are the OG Warwick
I like them but I’m a guy that likes Warwicks.

Fat necks, nice tones.

I had one of Warwicks squier like branded basses years ago that I should have never sold, was a brilliant piece of kit!

What do you think of those EMG pickups?

Well, they’re J pickups in huge housing. EMG J’s are not particularly punchy and Bartolini preamps and pickups skew heavily towards the soft and warm side. Without hearing, I guess it’ll tend towards being a bit pillowy and warm sounding on the whole.

Good thing about soap bars is you can get them in all sorts of combinations inside so the world is your oyster.

I’d swap the pre out for an Aguilar OPB-3 personally but this is all my taste coming out here

Ahhhhh probably not gonna be my scene either then, I like the punchy bass toanz, which my current 5 string bass does happily, but shes a weighty beast!

Buy it and swap out the pre and the pickups for Aguilars. I've got a Eurobolt 5 with the full Aguilar setup and it punches like a MF.

It would be my usual modus operandi to buy something and gut it to replace all the innards... :rofl:
