    I'm sorry if this is around somewhere but honestly I can't find it if it is and i've searched like 5 times now.

    Can we get a list of all Jazz Style basses? I love the Jazz style and to me, it is about as comfortable as it gets. I would like to get another one but something other than a Fender. I've played a few Laklands and am interested in a Spector Coda DLX but I would like to see what all is out there and see some opinions on them.

    Ones I KNOW:

    Lakland 44-60, 44-AJ, DJ, JO
    Spector Coda, Coda DLX
    Mayones Jabba
    Modulus Vintage J, Genesis VJ
    Sadowsky offers several
    Fodera NYC

    I think ESP and Nordy have one too.

    Ok, help a guy out and fill in the rest of the list, plus I think this is something would help some other guys out too, hopefully I am not the only J-bazz body lover out there! :bassist:

    Might be shorter to list what's NOT a Jazz style bass...

    Nearly every manufacturer make a J or P type bass.
    It's rarer to find one that doesn't.

    It's like asking which carmakers have models with spoliers.

    I will never get tired of seeing Civics with wings that would be more at home on an A380.

    Back on topic, I have seen Smith "Jazz Basses," and Mike Lull is known for his superfenders. G&L makes a Jazz clone too.

    The first Alembic looks amazing!
  13. USRR guitar factories had never produced a JB or PB style bass. Except that they produced their own style, like (to me) always kickin ass Roden:

    And even in close USSR countries JB or PB lookalikes had been produced. In Poland - Aster Bass, in Czechoslovakia - Proxima Bass, in DDR - Action Bass, in Bulgaria - Orfeus Solo Bass. If we produced it here - means, that mostly everyone wanted to produce it.

    Personally I think more about the differences. If all those basses are JB or PB, are the differences THAT big ?
