Dial in Your Signature Tone

With separate volume controls for each pickup and a master tone knob, the Player II Jazz Bass gives you the tools to dial in virtually any bass tone you can imagine. Want a bright, cutting tone for slap funk grooves? Roll off the neck pickup and crank the bridge. Looking for a fat, saturated sound for dubby basslines? Blend both pickups and add some grit with the tone control. You can even switch between pickup combinations with the flick of a switch, for instant tonal variety in the studio or live on stage.
