Now, I know this could be a kinda noobish question, but I was wondering if you guys could give me any opinions on what would be a good 4 string bass for playing jazz with. I play in a jazz big band and we play things like The Chicken, Pick up the Pieces, Milestones, Chameleon, The lady is a tramp, Tune Up, Birdland, and Spain. now you can see there is quite a bit of variety in terms of latin/swing/bigband tunes there. I was thinking of a fender J bass but I would like to know what alternatives there are. I am willing to spend anything up to 1000 US$ at the very most. Thanks for your help in advance. Dan.
