    I'm going to buy either a t-40 with Christmas money or another MIM Jazz and just upgrade the pups with the left over money. I'd be buying a Sansamp if I got a t-40. I'm running into a Ampeg BA210sp


    spend $500 on sansamp/T-40 (Which I absolutley love the feel and sound of)


    spend the $500 on a hand-selected MIM Jazz and swap the pups and maybe scrounge for a dredgetone angler.

    Give me opinions and please don't tell me to just go steal because I've considered trying to ask to play a sansamp at GC and then pocket it and try to escape.

    very true. You have answered your own question. You need to lookm for YOUR tone. That's all the really matters. It's kinda like a car. I drive a slightly rusty truck. I love it. I don't know if I can even sell the thing. But that's just how it is. You like the tone, go with it. I definitely love the sansamp. I havent played the t40 myself, but if it works for you, then go for it.

    But I'm okay with the feel of a MIM J, I just don't know how it would sound or if it would surpass the sound of a t-40 if it had upgraded pups.

    go to a music store and a/b the two. Let your ears decide. Check on used also!
