    I have never owned one, and im not sure if i like the sound (though i think i probably would), but i love just looking at jazz basses. Mainly i have seen fenders and sadowsky's, but i want to see more. Post the coolest one you have seen here, whether it is yours, someone elses, you made it, whatever.

    I'm just messin' with ya, I've just never heard the technical terms slantier and pointer. Your right about the Modern Sadowsky models being cut a bit more "modernly". The body is smaller than a Fender and cut a bit more sharply. Good feeling body without being awkwardly small.

    Its hard to convey sarcasm, humor, or other meanings on forums like this.

    Can't decide if this is the coolest or weirdest looking jazz bass ever! It's like someone couldn't make up their mind so they just did a little of everything!

    I dont think i can argue with that logic.... is this your own creation, or is it made by a company?
