    Has anyone played any?
    I tried out a jazz style one yesterday, and it was amazing. Probably the best playing j-bass, I have ever played. Also, would 1500 or so be a good deal for said used bass (in perfect condition)? This was at a GC, so I wasnt sure. Are there any websites or other places to find out about them?

    Thanks.

    I think we are thinkin of different basses. The one i am talking about is a Moon custom bass, I guess larry graham uses them, and they are hard to find in the US.

    No, Moon basses are a japanese, usually J type bass. Sound and play great. Honestly I do think 1500 might be a little high, seen some used go for about 1000, maybe a little less, maybe a tad more.

    agreed with above. I've played a Moon jazz bass years ago...it was quite nice. Still, I think that price is a bit steep. Unfortunately, they don't seem to pop up very often, at least in the States
