This is the Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass, which stands our popular Jaguar bass design on its head with features including a “reverse” body and “reverse” headstock, new pickguard shape, two enormous Reverse Jaguar humbucking pickups and a streamlined control layout of a single three-way pickup toggle switch and two knobs (volume and tone). It’s one of the most distinctive Fender bass guitars ever.

If you have trouble viewing any of the articles, drop us a line and let us know. I've tested everything and all seems okay, so it may have been nothing more than a temporary whoopsy-daisy!! (that's the extremely highly technical term for glitch)

Just wanted to form an updated sentence or two on the latest rage in the Bass world, which - of course - is Brian Bromberg's Bass On The Broadband.
Going to school has never been this smooth, cool, and in the groove! If you are like me - somewhat lacking in knowledge of the bass world in its largest, most diverse sense - listening to BotB is just that...like going to school.
