I own a Fender Jazz and I love it...
I've owned Yamaha basses in the past and they are great too....but looking at the list of stuff you play...its Fender Fender Fender
For Motown, Jazz and Blues there is nothing better than a Fender........
: More of your wisdom please.
: I'm still lookng for my next bass. I've been around all the local shops, I pretty much have to choose from what's available, or import - which is expensive and a hassle. I like the look and sound of a Yamaha BBG4AIIA (!) US$475 and a Fender Highway jazz (active) at $750.
: The Yam is in a department store, and I had to play it through a small guitar amp.
: The Fender, in another shop, I played through a big fender amp.
: The Fender sounded great, but I thought the sound might be a bit tiring after an hour or two??
: The Yam is more my price, I could strecth to te Fender with effort.
: Whatever I choose will have to last me a looong time.
: The music I like is modern jazz/fusion, Motown, blues, but I enjoy all music. Tom Browne, Urbanator, Lenny White - and Barry White.
: I would be gald to hear from anyone with experience or views on these basses, please.
