Man... I have a bunch of basses. Namely: Lakland JO5, Yamaha TRB6P, Cirrus 6, SX SPJ-62 and have had a bunch before. But this used and gigged Yamaha BB1600 is awesome. Yamaha really knows their stuff!! It's got a SUPER huge tone and the P pickup REALLY growls! And this is a PJ that when the J is soloed, sounds like a jazz bass. And although the bass is about 9 lbs, it's solid as a rock and I can feel the quality through and through. Currently very dead Fender (I think) strings on it. When I put Sunbeams on it, I'm sure it'll be even greater. Even nicer is the jazz profile neck. It's slim and comfortable with a great finish on the back. I highly recommend you guys pick one up used if you ever run into one. Got this for only $310 shipped!
