    I'm looking for a 2nd bass for around the house.
    one of the following 3 will probably fit the bill
    but I'm looking for some feedback.

    Aria STB-JB-DX (jazz copy @ about 225.00)
    Johnson JJ-800 (Jazz copy @ about 150.00)
    Essex SJB-62 ( yet another jazz copy for 130.00)

    yes I have read the Essex mega thread but have no info on the other 2 basses.
    anyone played or checked out the other ones ?

    thanks

    Uh, at least if someone says "Hey, nice Aria/Essex" it won't make everyone else in the room snicker.


    Honestly, I'ld steer clear of Johnson anyway.

    Johnson blows. Id shoot for the Essex, better deal than the Aria.
