    Just spent my lunch hour at Bass NW and brought this baby back to my office:

    http://www.bassnw.com/Used%20Basses/the_bass_company_JT400JJ_natural_pau_ferro.htmLink to Pix here.

    Budget was $500 and I tried a bunch of different basses in that price range but just kept coming back to this one. I really like slim necks and natural wood (check & check) plus this seems like a pretty solid bass for the money. Love to hear from other owners.

    I've been away from the bass for a while and just wanted to post back here to reintroduce myself.

    I'm a sucker for a nice natural finish too. Nice lookin. bass. Nice price.
    I've never played one, although have seen 'em before. Congrats. Good bang for the buck I would imagine...

    I was looking to get one of these but couldn't because the guy who made them closed shop. Nice looking bass.

    I own a 4 string and a 5 string. Very nice basses. I love the chambered body's...very lightweight. The necks are very comfortable and I love the 19mm string spacing. I happen to really like the electronics in these basses. The slap tone is great and the solo'ed bridge pickup tone is unique, great fingerstyle burpy tone. The two I purchased were both made in the USA and I had a few conversations with Jack about these basses. He is a very enthusiastic person that loved his creation. I wish these basses were still being made.
