I want to start by saying that I have already done a search, and turned up lots of info. I am currently scoping out some Jazz style 5 strings and wondered what people are playing and if you could give me any advice. I am looking for a fiver based on a fender jazz, with 3/4" spacing and preferrably an active preamp. It would also have to be under $1500. Here is what I have seen around: -New Lakland Skyline JoBo5 with J-retro installed -Used Pedulla J-5 -Used Sadowsky Metro (hard to find) -Used Lull MV5 I guess my question is this, for people who have played or own(ed) more than one of these: Would I be better off pulling the trigger on the *NEW* Lakland w/ J-retro, or scouring the used market for one of the others? I guess as a secondary question, does anyone have one of the above for sale? Thanks for all your help.
