Hey. First, thanks to anyone whose reading this. I realize these threads are a bit lame and aren't exactly interesting reads, so thanks for attempthing to help me out. Anyway, the specifications for the bass I'm looking for aren't all that numerous, it just comes down to a few things. I would like a bass that sounds, looks, and feels like a Fender Jazz, or very similar to one, except I would like 24 frets. I realize I can get a warmoth neck that has 24 frets, but the cutaway of a Fender Jazz would not be suited to allowing me to use all of the frets, which is important to me, although even only being able to reach up to the 22nd fret would be alright too. Any ideas would be appreciated. I'm willing to spend up to 800 or 900 dollars, but any suggestions a bit above or below that would be cool too. I'm obviosuly not looking for a bass that performs just like a really high end Fender Jazz and that fits this price range, so now that I've mentioned that you can't point that flaw out in my wording . Thanks a bunch guys, keep bassing it up!
