: : : My friend is offering me his bass with Bartolini pickups. Is this a good deal for $250? Though I've never played bass I've heard that Bartolinis are damned good pickups but I wouldn't know for sure. Anyone think I should buy this bass?
: : Bob,everyone on this forum is probably sick of my constantly mentioning this,
: : but this past July I bought a Fender Jazz Bass(fretless,made in Mexico)and
: : the quality is very high.
: I agree with the Mickster. I have a Mexican Fender and I like it. That's not saying much because that's all I have played.
: Having said that, I have to add that the tuning machines on mine are terrible. Especially the one on the E string. So slippery. I can never nail its position. Any tips on addressing this will be greatly appreciated.
: I also agree with the Mickster.I like my Mexican Jazz a lot,and thats with the stock pickups!You should definitly get that bass if you can.You wont be disappointed.As for the tuning peg:I dont know-unfortuneatly,I've never had a problem with mine.If the tension can be adjusted,you might want to try that.Hope this was helpful.Peace.
