    i want to ask for a new fretless bass for christmas, seeing as how my current one is a squier p bass that i defretted and is falling apart after a few years of play. is a used mij jazz my best bet in the $300-400 range?
     
  2. i would say so. i am interested in the same thing. it seems the experts post that the early 80's ones were preferrable, but costs more.

    The only other ones in that range that I can think of would be a used MTD Kingston, used KSD Jazz, or a used Carvin, and I imagine a MIJ is the best of the lot (never played one, but heard only good stories about their quality).
