I've been looking for a second short scale bass for those arthritic days. I have a DeArmond Starfire Bass I really like. I got all worked up about the Epi Allen Woody sig yesterday, but cold reality set in this morning - I really don't want to spend that much right now. Who here has one of the DeArmond JetStars? I see VH1 STM still has a few on eBay, and what I've read in the archive here and on the FDP says that they're the short scale set neck models. If the quality is similar to my Starfire, they must be better than decent. Who here has one and can describe the neck? The tone? The balance? The quality? The taste? Do cases exist?
