    I found an American Jazz Deluxe 5 and I thinking of trading my MM 5 in on it. Love the feel and tone of the MM, however the string spacing on the Jazz is a little wider(which I like) and it seems to have a much wider selection of tone.

    I'm concerned about value, which one will hold it's value better. Keeping the MM5 and buying the Jazz is out of the question. The wife has quietly sat by and watch me bring home the MM5,and a MM4,a Jazz plus 4 fretless, not to mention the 1978 PJ I allready had. Don't want to cross that un-written line (you guys know what I mean)!

    Was wondering if any of you pro's have any thoughts?;)

    Oh, I forgot to mention the MM5 is a couple years old and the Jazz is NOS (1998).

    The unwritten line is only as good as the paper it's written on :p

    Take her to dinner and keep both.
