Tomorrow I am due to pick up a Squier Jazz Deluxe V, but for $12 less, I could get the fretless Squier Jazz with the Ebonol board. The advantages of both basses are that they are really great for the money. I have always loved fretless, but I never keep one. This Squier cheapie could well be the ticket. Jazz V would be a great active Jazz, and it could be a great platform for modding. For background, I have two fives, a 2008 American Standard V, and a 55-02.
