OK folks here's the deal. After considering virtually every J style 5 on the market in my price range, I have narrowed it down to these. I know there are tons of other basses just like this or worse or better for more or less money but these are my firm choices. Please cast a vote to help me choose. Just take this into consideration. This bass is going to be used in conjunction with a Sadowsky outboard preamp. I have my reasons for not actually buying a Sadowsky. Thanks for the help.
