I received my August issue of Bass Player today ([i:27rd9y54]after[/i:27rd9y54] the October issue came:? Thanks, USPS :P ). The teaser on the cover about Xotic's J-style bass reads "Xotic Super-J Bass." Hmmm. A quick turn to the article revealed that is [i:27rd9y54]not[/i:27rd9y54] the model name of the bass, but it still seems some DDG toes may have been stepped on. :oops: Mark

Thanks for the clarification, Frank. I wonder why he didn't trademark the name? Mark

Mark-- I'm pretty sure Sheldon didnt trademark the "super-J" moniker, so really its up for grabs. ALso as mentioned many high end "J" clones have been called superJ's for a long time. Funny thing is when Sheldon and I were discussing the name of these basses, all my first emails had the title "uberJ" and it kinda of transmoglified into super-J

Maybe that's OK on a forum, but for a magazine that featured the Dingwall Super-J in a review, this seems like a major blunder. Mark

Indeed. But it sems that people on forums are beginning to casually refer to high-end J basses (Lull, Sadowsky, et al.) as "Super Js."
