Hey all I play both a Fender J and a MM SR5, and love them both, so this isn't a versus question. I find that my Jazz has a more noticeable "colour" tonewise than the SR5. The SR5 sits beautifully in the mix, and has its own character tonally, but the Jazz has a really unique sound that stands out. The Jazz has a rosewood fretboard, which I know makes it darker sounding. Nothing wrong with that, mind you, just wondering what you guys think.
