A Totally Hoppus'd Up Bass!Look! In the sky! Is it a J Bass? Is it a P Bass? No - it's a Hop Bass! The Fender Mark Hoppus Jazz Bass is a totally freaky kind of animal, kind of like the bassist for blink-182 himself. Yeah, it's got a Jazz Bass body, but take a look at the pickup. Not only did Hoppus ditch the traditional J Bass spaced pickup pair, opting for a P Bass-style Seymour Duncan Basslines SPB-3 Quarter Pound split pickup instead, he flipped it around. Weird, huh? This totally whack pickup flip adds some ping to the bass strings and mellows out the high strings, which gives the Mark Hoppus Jazz Bass a totally punk sound. And check this out, the bridge plate's all wonky too. It's a Fender American series plate with Standard series saddles and screws. You may call the Fender Mark Hoppus Jazz Bass weird, but we call it AWESOME.
