Canadian rockers, Inner City Elegance, are beginning to make a name for themselves throughout the industry. Providing the bass lines for these up-and-comers is Justin Parsons and his Fender Jazz Bass. Check out what he thinks of his weapon of choice in the gear review below.
What one piece of gear do you use to obtain your signature sound?
Justin: Where do I even start with gear? I have one of the sickest space ship rigs around. I’ve burned through a ton of rack-mounted tuners, effect processors and high-end compressors. It’s all about how many floors you got…you know? When it comes down to it the Fender Jazz I play is the key to my sound and playing style. I would feel awkward without it.
What about it makes it so important to you?
Justin: Mainly it’s the only bass I have at my disposal. But its delicious skinny neck matches well with my skinny body.
What are the major pros and cons?
Justin: Pros: Sounds Sexy and Delicious. Cons: Doesn’t go buy smokes.
How long have you had it, how do you use it, would you ever change it?
Justin: Well it’s actually Spencer’s Bass, I’ve never owned one of my own. Gypsy soul man… basses are like shoes… everyone has their own… but I’m weird and I like wearing other people’s shoes.
Any final thoughts or comments on the gear?
Justin:I love this bass… and the sounds I can get from it!
