...BRING IN THE HEAVY HITTER

Overview:
The ALL NEW Classic J Pro features: a 2-piece Alder body, satin finished neck with heavy stainless steel frets, a Rosewood fingerboard and a set of Alnico V Classic J Vintage pickups.

The Suhr Classic J Pro is based on the iconic electric bass designs of the 1960's. This shape has helped define the electric bass guitar for over half a century. The Classic J’s sleek frame, asymmetrical body shape, and slim vintage neck profile make for an instrument that combines vintage style with modern improvements.

From the thundering growl of Rock, to deep warmth of Jazz, to the percussive slap of Funk, the Classic J Pro is always the right choice.


TONE WOODS:

ALDER:
One of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960's, is grown all over the world. Alder is medium to light in weight with soft tight pores. It has a light tan color and can sometimes exhibit large swirling grain patterns and rings. Alder is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Alder is used extensively for guitar bodies because of its light weight and its full sound.

MAPLE:
Sourced mostly from the Northern United States and Canada and is commonly used to make necks. Maple has a classic tone, strong in the midrange with a sweet spanky high end.

ROSEWOOD:
Being one of the most popular fingerboard woods for guitars, Indian Rosewood is usually sourced from either India or Bangladesh. It has a thick grain pattern with colors ranging from brown-black, purple, to red-brown. Indian Rosewood is particularly favored by blues and rock players for it’s thick, sweet tone. It has an ideal balance of fat lows, warm mids and a sparkling high end presence.


NECK:
Each Classic J Pro is equipped with our Vintage J neck profile. Rolled edges and a 7.25” fingerboard radius offers a substantial, yet comfortable shape.


NECK FINISH:
The quarter sawn Maple neck is tinted, then finished in satin acrylic urethane, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.


FRETS:
Every Classic J Pro includes heavy stainless steel frets, which offers silky smooth long-lasting playability. Utilizing the PLEK process on each instrument guarantees the best possible string action, ensures optimized playability and eliminates intonation problems.


ELECTRONICS:
The Classic J Vintage pickup captures the character of a great sounding mid ‘60s single-coil pickup, with just the right amount of output for exceptional warmth, punch, and definition. Whether you play Jazz, R&B, Rock or Country, the Classic J Vintage will bring you all the subtleties and nuances of your unique playing style.


BODY FINISH:
The Classic J Pro uses our nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied. This allows the wood to resonate freely while still providing ample protection. Our state of the art equipment, experienced staff, and uncompromising quality control ensure that no instrument leaves our facility until it meets our demanding standards.


HARDWARE:

TUNERS:
The Classic J Pro is equipped with Hipshot tuners, which provide improved tuning and stability.

BRIDGE:
The Gotoh Vintage Jazz bass bridge is solidly anchored for improved connection, improving sustain and tonality. The spiral saddles allow the adjustment/fine-tuning of the instruments string spacing which improve the alignment of the strings to the pickups.

All sales final, as this is a consignment instrument.

From the Vintage Kramer Website:

DMZ Series

In 1979, the DMZ series appeared. The DMZ name, based on it's use of DiMarzio pickups contained several models; 4 guitars and 3 basses. Also at this time, Kramer began using a roller-type nut instead of the older type to reduce friction and tension.

The DMZ 1000 featured a heavy maple body in black or natural with 2 DiMarzio Distortion hum pickups and a Badass bridge. The 1000 also had the slimmer body and horns like DMZ 5000 model bass. Controls were 2 vol, 2 tone and 3 way switch.

The DMZ 2000 was the same guitar as the 1000 but with a walnut/maple construction body option and 2 coil tap switches added. The DMZ 3000 was a natural maple (available in black also) bodied 3 single coil pickups on a black pickguard with Strat-ish styled bridge. Controls were 1 vol, 2 tone and 5 way select.

Also debuting in 1979 as one of the DMZ Customs was the DMZ4000 bass. At first, it sported the fatter bulbous body like the DMZ2000 and 3000 guitars. It also had a mini-pickguard in the middle of the body that held a passive split-coil Dimarzio P-bass pickup. Controls on the early version were 1 volume and 1 tone knob and face-mounted jack. This first mach was availble in black(maple body), natural(maple body) or walnut/maple combination. Later that year, the 4000 lost it's pickguard and gained an active EQ and Dimarzio Dual Coil pickup instead of the passive model used on the earlier version. It gained 2 switches, one for power and one for coil tap. Around this time, the 4000 was planned to be dropped and the DMZ4001 was to take over. The 4001 was basically the same bass as the later 4000 version but had only one coil tap switch. Both the 4000 and the 4001 initially had the fatter body but was streamlined down to the thinner-horned, sleeker body like the DMZ1000 guitar. Color options remained the same throughout the run. Necks were standard aluminum with dot inlays and, like the rest of Kramer's alum. neck basses, had the fretless or half fretless option and some with no dots.

Basically, if it has a pickguard, it's a 4000 no matter what. The deciding factor of the non-pickguarded models come down to the time frame the model came out in. Although the 4000 and 4001 is listed as having active curcuity, there are several examples of non-active, non switching configurations on both models. The 4000 run was ended about the time the 4001 came out with very little overlapping time. Both models at different times sported passive and/or active electronics.

The 5000 was a slight departure from the others as far as body shape which was thinner and more streamlined than as before. It had the walnut/maple combo body, (although natural. and black were available), one Jazz and one Precision pickup, crown inlays and 2 volumes, 2 tones and 2 coil tap switches.

LIST PRICE: 25th Anniversary HH, $3,350.00

Originally published in Guitar World, November 2009:
The 25th has the classic tones covered and much more, in a very sexy package, while the Big Al redefines how a Music Man bass looks and sounds, and is potentially a classic in its own right.

To celebrate 25 years of Music Man, Ernie Ball has released two new bass models that combine traditional elements with brand-new developments that make them cooler and more versatile than ever. The 25th Anniversary bass is a limited-run instrument, available in four- and five-string models with several different pickup configurations. The Big Al is a bass version of the Albert Lee guitar, and it’s one of the most radical-looking and unique tone machines around.



FEATURES:

  • The Big Al and the 25th Anniversary share two brand-new features: an elegant and efficient four-button switching system and passive operation with a separate passive tone control. The 25th bass is available in H, HH, and HSS (another new development) configurations, while the Big Al has three single-coil pickups with phantom coils for silent operation.
  • The Big Al features an alder body, a bolt-on maple neck with 22 high-profile wide frets, maple fingerboard (rosewood and pau ferro fretless are optional), five-bolt neck joint, compensated nut (1 1/2–inch width), four-band active/passive preamp, and three Neodymium magnet single-coil pickups. The Big Al offers a wide range of tones, from pure organic passive chunk to ultra-modern edge, and the new switching system allows access to the three pickups individually or in any combination: in Active or Passive mode, and with coils one and two in Series mode. There is a tone for every gig in this bass.
  • The 25th Anniversary model is based on the Axis guitar, and like the Big Al it makes a strong visual statement. The body is ash with a bound and bookmatched flamed maple top (quilted maple is an upgrade) in a juicy Venetian Redburst stain with matching headstock. Buried under this sexy top is a mahogany tone block that adds depth, clarity and sustain. The five-bolt, gun-stock-oiled maple neck, maple board (rosewood and pau ferro fretless optional), 22-frets, compensated nut and standard Music Man bridge are all typical features. But the ceramic humbuckers, four-band active/passive preamp and series/parallel switch (H and HH models only) give this ax many new voices in addition to the familiar Music Man tone. The 1 3/4–inch nut is a comfy width, and the 17.5mm string spacing at the bridge leaves plenty of room for slap and fingerstyle playing without feeling bulky. New lightweight tuners and a smaller headstock are employed to help with balance due to the shorter top horn. A Music Man five-string is a reliable choice for clear, articulate B strings, and the 25th is no exception.

 
PERFORMANCE:
Both basses exhibit remarkable tonal consistency between Passive and Active modes when set flat. The Big Al is a major departure from the past. With all three coils in Active mode it produces a new modern slap tone that’s complex, full range and punchy. The middle coil gets surprisingly close to the P-Bass chunk but with a little more edge. The neck pickup is similar to a single-coil-style P—more open, and more girth. Combining the neck and middle coils delivers a great blend of thickness and edge. The surprise tone is with the middle and bridge pickups in Series mode. This gives you a well-focused kick, not unlike the MM Sterling.


The 25th Anniversary HH has four distinct personalities. Without the preamp, the pickups have an earthy quality that will satisfy the most devout passive purist. Active mode allows you to accentuate or de-emphasize frequency ranges with precision, while Parallel mode gives you access to the classic Music Man tone palette: shimmering highs, pumping lows, and focused mids. Series mode adds the low-mid punch that hard rockers require to carve their way through the sludge of detuned guitar madness. Combining Active and Series modes makes this baby grind.

 
THE BOTTOM LINE:
These instruments represent a new direction for Music Man. The 25th has the classic tones covered and much more, in a very sexy package, while the Big Al redefines how a Music Man bass looks and sounds, and is potentially a classic in its own right.

Overview:
The Return of the LB-100

  • The G&L LB-100 made its debut twenty years ago in response to bassists asking for a subtle evolution of the p-style platform. With a slightly streamlined body shape for improved comfort and balance, the LB-100 also brought the G&L Saddle Lock bridge for richer note definition and sustain. In the late ‘90s tastes were changing and the popularity of the p-style platform waned, and the LB-100 was discontinued.
  • In those years the G&L LB-100 earned legions of avid fans, among them Garry Beers of INXS. According to Garry:
  • “I’ve been a diehard Precision Bass fan since I was a kid, and as my career took off with INXS I was fortunate to be able to collect some amazing examples made in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Of course, there’s my number one Fender, a 1958 p-bass which I dearly love. However, the truth is the best p-type basses I’ve played are my G&L LB-100s. The shape, feel, and tone are just superb. I’m excited to see the LB-100 return after all these years.” – Garry Beers of INXS
  • While the tone remains unchanged, thanks to a faithful recreation of the original LB-100 Alnico V pickup wound in-house at G&L, playability is enhanced with Plek fret processing making this LB-100 the best yet.
  • Made in Leo Fender’s historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the LB-100 is now available with a wide range of custom options including body and neck woods, body and neck finishes, neck profiles and pickguard materials.
