I really need a PJ5, its just the right bass for my style and my gigs. I came very close to buying a Sadowsky NYC but balked at the price at the last minute. If a used one would ever come up I think my problem would be solved ... but that doesn't happen very often. I recently bought a wonderful Lakland USA Joe Osborne 5 (alder/rosewood/burst), but for my gigs the P pickup really sits better than a J bass of any kind, so I'm thinking over what to do ... 1) Sell the JOBO and some other gear, suck it up and buy a Sadowsky NYC built to spec. Pros: its the bass I want. Cons: cost. serious cost. 2) Sell the JOBO and get Nino to build me a bass. Pros: Nino's basses are pretty damn nice (I had #12 for a while). Cons: The wait, and I might still find myself gassing for an NYC. 3) Do the IotaNet conversion and have a P pickup routed on the JOBO Convertable pickguard, the whole deal. Pros: Might end up being a killer bass, plays like a dream. Cons: Modding a >$2k bass is insane, might not turn out the way I like, would have to find a luthier to do it, total cost could approach a used NYC, 35" scale might throw it off of a true P vibe, and pickup placement calculation is tricky on the different scale. There are lots of other options I don't like for various reasons (don't like the look or the polepiece arrangement on the Fender PDV, tried and disliked a lull ...), but I'll listen to any and all opinions.
