Love all the advice guys! Thanks so much! I currently play a Sadowsky, which is really well made, really great modern tone, but there is something about he 70's Fenders that I really dig, both P's and J's. This is the first 70's j I have come across and even though I really loved it, I will be sure to try to find a few more to play before pulling the trigger. This particular J is the perfect storm of great tone, great shape, great neck with excellent frets and bound fingerboard. I WILL be buying a new bass with my tax return, it is just a question of another high tech modern like a sadowsky, or the vintage Fender. Since I have always loved fenders and don't currently have one, that is how I am leaning. I'll be sure to let yall know.
