Well, it all depends on what you mean by alternatives. There are a lot of other basses out there.
But if you want a passive jazz bass 6 string and you want to spend less than 2k (or $200 for that matter) there is no alternative.
I just received a b stock a few days ago, I intend on doing a video some time. It has totally blown my expectations out of the water. It feels like a serious serious bass. Action is low, frets are not completely without buzz, but it still hasn't been professionally set up.
The red looks really nice in person, there is a bit of a sparkle to it.
