First of all: remember there's a Vintage Modified Jazz V too out there...
If you ever decide within two proper models you have in your sights in a shop: I once had a Vintage Modified Jazz IV (that went under deep mods, no room to describe'em here) and tellin' you the Hipshot bass extender you need it's the BT7 model
Then I have two almost identical full black Squier active deluxe V and, lettin' B string alone (actually they're a fullstep downtuned
A-D-G-C-F and they're main giggin' basses) they're chunky but have very reliable fit and finish
