As I’ve mentioned in other threads, I have recently acquired a new Fender Aerodyne Jazz bass.
The basses I already have include a Squier Affinity Series PJ, modded with DiMarzio pickups, high mass bridge, drop d tuner upgraded pots and La Bella flatwound strings. It plays nicely and sounds good.
However, there is no sound I can get from the Squier that I cannot get from the Aerodyne. The Squier has become redundant.
I suppose the logical thing to do would be to sell it, but it is an Affinity series and the amount I would get hardly justifies the hassle. Besides, where’s the fun in that?
Why not make it sound different? Perhaps I should have another go at round wound strings. Or tape wounds? BEAD tuning?
Suggestions are most welcome, even off the wall ones (especially off the wall ones).
