There is a local music shop near my place.. and I tried Jaco tribute custom shop bass at there recently.... I was so impressed by its sound I felt like it's singing. In fact, I have never tried fretless bass in my life and I thought spending over 3K on a bass that I haven't tried much yet is kinda risky... but today, I just asked the bass guitar department manager there that if I could exchange with my Warrior Signature 5 + Spector EURO CRFM for Jaco custom. It seems like the manager really liked my bass and he told me he would buy warrior for 1600 and 950 for the spector. The Jaco custom is preowned and is 2,999.90 Do you think that deal is good? Or... shouldn't I spend that much money on Jaco custom? To be honest, I am not buying for its looking. I always have been disliking relic'ed thing and.. I read an thread somewhere in here that buying Jaco custom means I would pay couple of thousand dollars for its relic thing. But when I play this bass, -wow- the sound was just great and I felt some kind of "charisma" on this instrument when I took a look. I could be invalid for what I just said that I don't like relic things but this one was the only exception. I think the manager would be only interested in exchanging but buying and I have been having difficulty to sell my two basses on my local Craigslist. (It seems like no one in my town is interested in those basses ) What I need to do is bring around $450 with my basses to exchange with Jaco custom. Or, I could wait endlessly until I sell my basses and I just place an order for another one.. I know.. there is no such an absolute answer, but I just wanted to ask you guys what would you do if you're in my situation. I would be really glad for any kind of opinion. Also, I would be REALLY glad if someone gives me very experienced convincing idea about Jaco custom that could kill my GAS. Another word, is spending over 3K on Jaco custom is worth for the money? Thank you!
