    So for the last couple of months I've been eyeing this LowEnd Jazz 5 and today I decided to take the plunge. I traded in both my basses and some other things and ended up with this beauty!

    To say I'm on cloud 9 is the understatement of the year. To this point, the best bass I've ever owned was my modded MIM Jazz.

    Brian, I can't tahnk you enough man!

    Full review to come!

    Sweet. I've never played one, or a Benavente for that matter... but I really like the way they sound in the site videos.

    That's Wilbyman's old bass I believe. He said it was a great bass. Congrats.

    If you're close to Grants Pass you could probally arrange with Chris to come check out the shop. Nothing beats first hand expirence.

    Me too. That's what I loved about it. I'm such a sucker for blocks too.

    I've have an old friend who got the red vortex 6 that was on the site a few years ago, those basses are probably one of the few things that are on my 'absolutely must try' list.

    Congrats, Beav :hyper:

    I love those basses, especially in black. I have been fighting off serious gas for a 7 like this one for a long time now ...

    What's the string spacing on that 5? Looks like there's an inch between each string.

    Jazzin - it's the full 19mm. It looks extra wide due to the 4 string size blocks.

    Figjam - lol, no kidding. I feel so blessed that this came across my path!
