A good Fender jazz bass with with a good setup and fairly new strings. Use medium gauge strings 45 to 105, thinner strings than that affects tone negatively especially when it comes to slap IMO

Am very pleased to join your site. I am not happy with the the tone on nearly any bass guitar or amp that I use. Till now I have not used any fully professional jazz bass guitar – 1000$+ ones. Is that the problem though ? What is the gear you recommend for players of 20 yrs of exp playing funk and jazz with lots of solos. And what are your typical tone settings for a good funk/jazz tone ?

whats marlowe first of all i am glad i found your site it is already opening new ideas for my playing and straying away from just the penatonic scale. i do have a problem. staying focused during practice (when i do practice) between family and work my time is like a battle. mostly i have played by memorey of notes but it doesnt alway work especially when you play with a different band and new songs on the fly played in diff keys. what can i do to fast track my playing in gospel bass licks?
No magical recipe other than playing as much as possible, or turn down the ambitions,play simpler and be happier;-)

Correct me if I am wrong, but it has a similar sound/feel as the MM Jbass you have (maple neck, etc.)
