  3. Jeff - I have a level 5 with SD basslines. I tried out the jazz but it wasn't my speed.

    I will tell you this - playability, craftsmanship is excellent. Matt knows what he is doing.

    It is a great value and it is my main bass.

    If you have specific questions - PM me.

    hey jeff,

    i wrote up a post a little while back on a few Puci's i played at a guitar show.

    the JJ4 i played was pretty freakin' nice. had Aero's. and tho it was passive, i coulda sworn it was active. punch was pretty tight, and huge.

    funny, but the Puci JJ5 looks alot like the Lakland Joe Osborn 5's i've been interested in.
