    It doesn't seem like there's too too much out there for the P/J5 aside from the American Deluxe P. So let's see em TBers!

    Sheldon Dingwall & crew built this one for me in 2012. Not cheap but worth every penny to me. :bassist:

    If you like Fenders, there is the Tony Franklin model.

    Lots of love for PJ5's around here mostly from the boutique builders. Check out the Sadowsky and Lull megathreads.

    Here's my Sadowksy NYC PJ5:

    And my old one:

    Yawn. You guys can't really want to see this again, can you?

    It's my Squier by Fender special P (which meant it had two jazz pickups that were REALLY poor). I modded it with a Dimarzio ultra J and a NOS Fender P-bass 5 pickup. You pull on the first volume knob to switch the P-pickup from series to parallel.

    I love everything about it...except... (I know, I know, tonewood doesn't matter!) I really don't like the "feel" of the Agathis body. Real Ash or Alder would be much nicer!

    One of these days I'll have to upgrade to an SX! i

    I am glad to see this thread and the fact that the world finally catching up with me in realizing that 5er PJ basses are the shiznit.

    One of these days I've just GOT to throw together a matching version of this in fretless!
