For 2015 we took the Diamond-J shape and redesigned it from the ground up to have a Vintage look while having top of the line electronics, versatile tone possibilities, and modern construction.
Starting with the Seymour Duncan Pickups, the Bridge & Neck are the Quarter Pound J ‘SJ5-3’. Developed for the bassist who needs the slammin' output of the Hot but with even stronger attack. The quarter-inch pole pieces and intense windings deliver a full response with great sustain.
The Master Volume knob features a ‘Phase Switch’ Push-Pull pot wired for the Quarter Pound J Bridge pickup. In ‘Down position’ the Seymour Duncan ‘SJ5-3’ is wired ‘In Phase’ for normal tone when combined with the Neck pickup. In ‘Up position’ the Bridge pickup is wired ‘Out-of-Phase’ when combined with the Neck pickup. This produces an original nasally honky tone with lots of emphasis on the Midrange. Previously a difficult tone to work with because the Low-end is cut until now since adding the Seymour Duncan 2-Band Active EQ with 18v system the Bass can be boosted creating a very unique tone that can be used for Tailoring your original sound.
We were looking for the most versatile tone possibilities so we developed this bass with a 4-Way Rotary Pickup Selector Switch. This gives you the option to combine the Bridge and Neck pickup in ‘Series’ or in ‘Parallel’.
