I have been looking for a jazz bass to compliment my Bob Glaub. I want the most versitile one, and definitely the smoothest tone w/out being fretless or 5 string. I've looked into G&L, MM, and Lakland, but I don't have a place to play these in my state, and I'm in college now so I can't go on a long trip really. Can anyone tell me what the best (in their opinion obviously) tone is for something real smooth and jazzy? I'm looking to spend UNDER 700 dollars shipped. Thanks!
