Upon second thought, if you have a grand at your disposal how about getting a Geddy Lee Signature Jazz and installing an active preamp? I hear the neck is noticeably thinner, front to back.
Brand new, they go for about $900, but I've seen used ones for significantly less. That should leave enough to buy active electronics and, if needs be, have someone install it, yes?
