I've had GAS for a while for a MIJ Jazz (something light), but wanted to do a project. A MIM is my regular gigging bass. So, maybe pick up a used one, then bring home and refinish? Or I could just get some odd color you can't find in the U.S. What do MIJ jazzes run in Japan cost wise? China- I know I can get a Ric copy for $175, but not sure I could legally get it back into the country. Been wanting one for kicks and giggles, but just don't know........sigh What do my fellow TB'ers think?
