which lower cost Fender models come in 5 strings?
I get intrigued by all these variations, Blacktop, Roadworn, Vintage Modified
but when I go to some site for more details and get a price on a 5, they don't all come in 5.
So I ask which come in 5's
I'm pretty sure VM Jazz and Precision do, (and I have an increasing obsession with the VM Jazz V) but beyond that, not sure.
There's the squier jag 5. There's the old P5 with 2 jazz pickups and the deluxe active 5.
Or you could get a used Fender jazz 5 for $300-$400ish.
Have you looked at the fender website?
yep there are
49 Jazz basses,
49 precision basses,

that's what I was looking for and now I know I can sort/search on Stillwater
I just picked up a MIM Jazz 5er. It's awesome.
Check out the new Modern Player Jazz V (satin). That's a pretty impressive bass. Only down I've heard from anyone is weight.
from what I read bigger wider neck on the Modern Player Jazz V than the VM Jazz V
VM Jazz V more suited for smaller hands
Both the modern player and the VM Jazz V (which I own) are 1.875" at the nut. I the VM5 has a modern C shape neck. I I believe the MP does as well.
Both also have the same radius, 9.5" and are 20 fret.
I suggested the MP V for the pickup options. It has a really wide range of tones and my VM5 is a Jazz Bass, pure and simple.
Here are the specs for both:
All the best,
For my personal taste l would choose a modern player. Huge passive sound and somewhat versatile (like a G&L). Had a four string which l traded to a tb'er (warrior joe7). China is making some great stuff these days. (I'm pretty sure Yao Ming endorses these)
