Hello everybody! Soon i'm gonna buy a new active 4 strings bass guitar. I really like the tone of the 2010 Fender American Deluxe Jazz bass (Maple + Ash) but I won't buy it because it has a poor build quality and it's also too heavy for my taste. I also don't like the "Fender Jazz" body shape because it's too big and it doesn't feel comfortable when I'm standing. Another problem is the electronics are completely unshielded so it gets very noisy when the active mode is engaged (I need this bass for recording so this is a big issue). Here are some examples if you don't know how it sounds: Right now I'm leaning toward Spector Euro 4 LX PJ or a MM Sterling 4 HS. I like the punch and growl of these basses and also the weight and the build quality, yet they don't have the exact tone I'm looking for and they aren't as versatile as the Fender. Long story short : I'm looking for a bass which sounds like a Fender American Delux Jazz but has the build quality and light weight (8.5 lbs or less) of a MM Sterling or a Spector euro LX. My budget is 2500$ Any suggestions? P.S. I know Lakland is a good option but they don't sell them where I live so I can't check them out... G&L and Sadowsky also have nice basses but they sound weak compared to the Fender.
