In regard to your bass, I'm guessing you've got others for particular styles of play but this Fender Jazz Bass is your favourite? If so, I wouldn't be surprised if you've left it unserviced (to maintain the 'feel'), as that is quite common with musicians who play gigs. For example, people get surprised when I tell them that bass strings are left on for many, many years (you can't do this with guitars).

My favorite genres to play were jazz/fusion/funk, so I was always partial to this bass even if it didn't work well for other types of music.  I could get that Jaco-like tone that I really dug.    After removing the frets, putting some epoxy on the fretboard and getting the tone I wanted, I didn't do anything to it beyond basic maintenance.    Once you've got the 'feel' you like, don't mess with it.  Only change the strings if you absolutely have to :)

As a fellow bass player I really enjoyed this review. I’ve also got my “workhorse” bass which is an Alembic I picked up at a fire sale price nearly 25 years ago. That thing has been through the ringer and still plays like a dream!

I still have yet to get my hands on a Lusi but I’m sure one of these days I’ll manage to get my hands on one. They sound amazing, especially when reviewed as throughly as this!
