I'd like to ask all those that own specifically a Fender Elite Jazz Bass V - to list their basses exact digital weight, and what finish it is ? Really wanting one of these (in Ocean Turquoise), but recent back surgery usually limits me to 9 or 9.5 lbs. max., as a tolerable weight for my basses on 3-4 hr. gigs/sessions. I've been told by a large retailer, that weighs all of their basses, that all of the Elite Jazz V's come in at around the 10 1/2 lb. range - which would pretty much be a deal breaker for me. However, I've PM'd with one TB'er who has one that he thought was only 9.5 lbs. - which gives me some hope of maybe being able to find one in an acceptable weight for me. So - please let me know what finish your Fender Elite Jazz V is - and what the exact digital weight is. Comments on B string response/performance of this model are also welcome, as is feedback on the tone/response with the new ebony fingerboards vs. rosewood. Also - does anyone know exactly when Fender made the changeover to ebony boards on the Elite series? Thanks! UPDATE: feel free to also chime in on weight of your Elite Jazz Bass 4-string - as that option may have to be a consideration for me based on responses on the 5. Please state that the info is for the 4-string version to avoid confusion in the responses.
