I've got a couple of itches I need to scratch and I would like to do it in one lick. I need a 5-string, want a bass that weighs less than my MIM Jazz, and I want to refinish and do some aftermarket mods to it(i.e. pre, paint, pups, etc) - I love Jazz style bodies. Can't help it. - I'd love for it to weigh under 8 lbs. - Want a player, not a collectors piece (think cheap). - Plan to make a project down the road. Refinish and add aftermarket pre, p/u, bridge, etc. -NO SX's- they are heavy and I do not like the string spacing. - I've seen some Jazz style Yamahas I liked. I'm looking at Squiers as well. -I'm patient and can wait to find it used on on Ebay. Bottom line is I'm looking for a lightweight Jazz style knockoff 5-string for low $$. Suggestions?
