Interesting :cool:

I tend to agree with your comments about the recent release of the JB. I hate to say it but the finish was not even close to the original. Unfortunately it just looked cheap. I never actually got to hear one though, so can't comment on the sound. It's a pitty, as I was really hoping that Maton would make a comeback on the bass front :(

Nice looking JB4.
I can confirm my 2013 fretless has Dimarzios - they are 'darker' than other lively pups, but I don't have a lot of opportunity for the 'clangy' end of things.
In fact, once I'd gone over the neck and bridge to get superlow action - the fretless buzz was so great, that I put tapewounds on to calm it down!
For me the front pup can 'slam' just as hard as my 76 P, but thats not to detract from the difference the EMGs can make by comparison.
Note for those interested in the recent series JB4 fretless versions - they all have very high actions! I did have to shave the bridge a reasonable amount to get the action super-low. Neck is great, as you say.
The finish on mine is 'modern' thin satin, beautiful feel, no problems:

Nice bass. It actually looks better in the video than it does in the photo's. Definitely a classic with a twist :thumbup:

Actually,
I remember the original Jbiv as being extremely popular amongst the top professionals that i used to go see play . .
Especially the fretless ones.
I heard many a top pro get a punchy , kick ass cut through the mix using them
Bands like Crossfire, and many other great players used them
and it was really quite a thing for a while
and this is the first time I've heard that the Di marzios were any issue at all.
That bass looks very nice , and I'm sure it sounds great.
I'm just providing my perspective
from what I saw and heard live from the better bass players of aust at the time
