I've been pondering something as of late. Do you consider different manufacturers' Jazz style basses to be different animals from one another? I realize that to many, only Fender and Fender-owned (Squier, etc.) are the "true" Jazz basses, in regards to Leo having coined the name. However, it seems almost every major bass manufacturer has a J copy, or a J-style bass in their lineup. I've only really played Fenders and Squiers for my experience. I briefly owned a Carvin B40, but don't recall how that sounded by comparison. So, little nuances aside (say for instance things like neck profiles, finishes, hardware, etc) - are all Jazz basses of the same ilk? Do you think that there are some that you could definitely pick out on a recorded mix as being so distinct in their sound that it's unmistakable? For the sake of simplicity, lets level the playing field and say that we're only talking about 34" scale, passive, 2 single coil equipped Jazz models. Also, in your opinion, who gets closest to the original "1960 Leo Fender Jazz" to your ears?
