It's been forever that I've had this bass, but I drum more than anything now and only really use this bass to compose. I've realized that I really don't need a 5-stringer, and am looking to go back down to 4. I would absolutely love a DJ4, also with Aeros in either the same color or lake placid blue. I absolutely love this bass and that extra string is the only thing that makes it perfect. I'm looking at Warwicks, Spectors, Sadowskys, possibly something with a P/J set-up or another modern jazz bass (all 4-stringers). That being said, another Darryl Jones 4 with Aeros (or even Lindy Fralin pickups) is king. Please, no offers for amps, cabs, etc. The bass is pretty much in perfect condition. The only thing that really shows any wear is the pick guard. Again, it has the Aero pickups, not Lakland. It comes with a Lakland gig bag, as well as the original white pickguard.
