Having been one to criticize poll designs on the past, I felt it was time to stick my neck out. Using the K.I.S.S. principle, I'd like to get the TB community opinion on an interesting choice for my backup fretted instrument. Both axes have a J-J pickup layout. The MIM J-bass with FMT sure surprised me by showing up in the latest MF catalog. At $500 with hardcase, that's a good deal. Throw in another $100 for a BadassII and Dunlop straplocks and one has a very nice axe. Of course, I'd probably also add another $120 for Basslines stck pickups to remove single coil noise. The MIC Rockbass Corvette SE also has a nice FMT and already has an active circuit with buffer preamp to eliminate hum, still needs straplocks and only comes with a gig bag for $700. There is an interesting dilemma here, isn't there? OK TB, sound off!
