    if i am, talk me out of it.

    Trading my stingray 5 for an 84 usa jazz.

    see, I cant play the 5 string, because my left hand has some sort of arthritis lump thing which hurts like hell trying to stretch much beyond 4 strings, but I dont know if Id be better off holding on to the stingray and getting cash. ug, help me...

    also, someone offered a deluxe jazz, but I think Im more of a passive kind of guy.


    opinions?

    Hey xparis001, if you can't play the 5 string, just trade her away. No big deal - a MIA Jazz is a great bass. Make sure not to trade for a Mexican "Deluxe" though, cause the hit in resale value would be much greater.

    try posting in the for sale/wanted section. Alot of people sell their 4s to buy fives so you may have some luck.

    Have you seen an orthopedic surgeion for that boney protrusion? Get it fixed, and keep your SR5.
     
  9. What is the 80's Jazz like?

    Check it out and see how you like it compared to your SR5.

    Check the market prices on both basses, and see what the odds are like.
    I tihnk it'd be an awesome swap for a SR4 or an old Jazz. Just my 2 pence :)

    And ya, get that wrists checked out, man!! :eek:

    g'luck
