Hey all -
I keep going back and forth between my American Standard P-Bass and my American Standard J-Bass. I love them both and of course am gassing for something new... I have a Tony Franklin Fretless, but don't have the $1600 for a TF Fretted. I am really thinking about a Hot Rodded P or J. I am considering a few things:
1. The late 90s / early 200s MIA Hot Rod P's
2. A Reggie Hamilton J (MIM, I think)
3. The '75 reissue MIJ PJ Jazz bass (CAR)
Looks like the used market has the MIA Hot Rods for around $775 (when you stumble upon one), the Reggies are going for $899 new and about $650 used and the MIJ PJ Jazzes seem to be in the $999 range.
In your humble (
) talkbass opinion, what's the best value, product, buy and why?
And ....... go!
