Ed Friedland, “The Bass Whisperer,” has posted a thorough demo and review of the G&L MJ-4 bass. Ed walks you through the wide tonal variety provided by the MJ-4 and gives some great tips on dialing it in for different styles of music.

In the end, Ed confesses, “I’m just going to come right out and say it. I love this bass! I’ve been playing it on gigs now for several months, and it just makes me happy. It does everything I want a jazz bass to do, and it does a whole lot more. And, it does it all really well.”
