    Who makes a jazzbass (jazz body and neck) with P and J pickups.
    I´d want a vintage looking and sounding bass of good quality. Can you help me? Any links?

    Hey,

    Fender does it: Fender MIM Zone Bass and Fender MIM P-Bass Special.

    Then, there´s Sadowsky (www.sadowsky.com), prices for the P-J 4-String Modell start at about $2500 (given you don´t want a figured maple top).

    Yes, I´ve seen those but I´d like a jazz body too.

    Check out the classifieds on this board. There is a sweet Geddy Lee jazz on sale with a P and a J...

    You can also go custom..

    www.dpcustom.com

    Jazz Body, Jazz Neck with slightly altered Headstock, 1 Piece Maple Neck (maybe Rosewood FB), some Color Finish if you want, or a fance top wood, paired with some Barts or SD and maybe an 3-Band EQ.
     
  6. Try www.warmoth.com

    I'm getting a j-bass body with P/J pups from them.

    Warmoth...hmmm. I´ve been reading all the threads about them and I´m impressed by the basses you guys have made but I dont know if I could do it. How hard is it (stupid question)?

  9. Hopefully, easier than the one I built from scratch! ;) That one took a year!

    I plan to do little of the assembly. I could do it all but I want to spend time researching every component and then hold someone else accountable for getting it assembled right! I'll use a good guitar tech here in Dallas. I figure it's worth it.

  10. The Sadowsky PJ model uses a jazz body: undersized or full size if you ask Roger. My next bass is a Sadowsky PJ 4 string with alder body, quilt maple top, and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.

    I played a Sadowsky PJ 5 with the same woods sans maple top and was buh-lown away! Unbelievable tone and playability!!!!!

    I love my Sadowsky ash maple 'board jazz bass and this should be a nice compliment.
