HI Guys, I used to play a Rickenbacker and an Ampeg Dan Armstrong Lucite bass in heavy bands in the late 90s/early 2000s (punk/grunge/metal). I am now doing something a bit different, kind of doomy/gothy/punky. Think Neurosis meets Bauhaus. I have a Gretcsh Electromatic and a Washburn Tauras neckthrough. I am waiting on a vintage Greco Tbird copy (Japanese). I am playing through an Orange OB-1-500 (solid state) through two Orange 410s. The Gretsch and Washburn are totally different, but equally pretty blah. Maybe the Greco will be so amazing I won't ever need another bass. But whenever I plug in my friend's 90's Fender P-bass into my rig, it just sounds so much better than the Gretsch or Washburn. The thing is, I can't stand how P-basses look. So, my solution is to get a Jazz, which look much better to me than the P. I would like to spend $1000 max. I am stuck deciding on which J-bass to get. There are tons of options: New (US), new (made somewhere else), and all the old models. My instincts tell me to get a 90s model, but I can't decide about US, Japan, Mexico. The problem is I will probably buy via Reverb unless I can find one here in San Diego. Advice???
