Hi all, just wanted to say how happy I am with my new burgundy mist LEJ5 I bought from Dan Lutz. I had never layed my hands on one so didn't know what to expect. because of medical bills, i was in no position to let gas get to me but I went for it. Right after i sent Dan the $$, I got some unexpected medical bills denied by my insurance and i told Dan I may need to sell it as soon as it arrived. Now that I have played it, that notion is history!! This is by far, the best jazz 5 string I have played. I've owned Sadowsky, Lull, F bass, Elrick etc. Funny thing is, I like Ash/maple basses to get that 70's Marcus funk and I wasn't sure how this Alder/Rosewood combo would be but it just nails that and with some eq, gets all the tones i enjoy. The neck profile is just fantastic too. Thanks again Dan, and if anyone sees a used LEJ for sale and always wanted one, don't wait, buy it!
