    One of the best jazz style basses you will ever play short of a Sadowsky or similar bass costing several times as much. The DJ price is reasonable, the fit and finish are first rate. The neck is a somewhat flattened jazz profile. The block inlays and binding are very well done, the aero pickups give jazz type tone with a little snappier highs and a bit more bottom.

    You absolutely cannot go wrong with one.

    Their Great looking basses thats forsure! I always likes the A bass DJ design. I would pick a different pickup, but thats just me and an easy change.

    Would it be possible to get it without the signature on the headstock? I hate when the headstocks are signed, it makes it seem like the instrument is an immitation.

    Im guessing short of a USA custom, you would not be able to get it without a headstock sig. The sig doesn't bother me in the least. It's not really that obvious. My Duck Dunn P also has a signed headstock and that doesn't bother me either.
    Think of it this way, at least the sig isnt inlayed on the fretboard like that awful Sting sig screwing up a perfectly neat bass.
