Ive been playing for a little more than two years and have had one bass the whole time a SX Jazz http://www.rondomusic.com/sjb573ts.html I have it painted purple and relicd currently but i want to get a new custom paint scheme on it. Im currently ordering a new pair of mec p/us for it and a gotoh 201. I plan on re-doing all the wiring and making it look and sound fresh. Now on to the GAS issue. I think im going to do the mods and keep it for a while and get another bass. If i feel the new bass is as good or better im going to try and sell the SX for some more money in pocket. I previously had my mind on this(thanks a lot TB!!!) http://www.rondomusic.com/product1059.html But as of late i have been looking into some older model Yamahas and Ibanez basses. I like the Roadstar because of the p/j p/us What do you guys think?
