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.
