    The only Myung model I've played was the first one... I wasn't very impressed with it.. Can't speak for the new one, but it looks nicer!!

    If I'm not mistaken, the JM2 has a 34" scale as opposed to the 35" scale of the JM. Also, it's been said that the JM2 has even tighter string spacing than the JM.

    For someone like me, with small hands, this sounds good since I play a Samick Fairlane 6- and I have yet to find a 6-string with a narrower fretboard and tighter string spacing than that. I found a Peavey Fury too wide for my tastes (and it had normal spacing; it wasn't a broadneck or anything like that), but the tighter Fairlane was perfect for me.

    I think what Defeldus is getting at is that for the money you pay for a John Myung bass, you can get better instruments, perhaps with more exotic woods or dual pickups or something.
