Local store has a brand new G&L JB2 in stock - I tried it and it's really nice. I would like to compare it to a Fender - but believe it or not - there isn't a Fender Jazz to be found around here. The G&L is priced more than an American Standard Fender - more comparable in price to one of the '62 RI at about $1800 CDN. Anyone have experience with both ? Could a G&L really be that good (better than the Fender ).
