What it be like, my great TB pals. Please help me on this one. I'm broke. I want an SR5/sterling or Skyline 55-02/44-02. I can't keep my jazz and afford one of these. I've always wanted that extra b (I'll stay with 4 though if the deals right) string & an onboard pre. I absolutely love my jazz's sound/7.25 radius and never thought I'd contemplate selling it. Problem is, I practice and play so much better on Musicmans, since the humbucker acts as a ramp, and I don't want to pump any more money into this jazz (custom ramp, j-retro). The aggie db-924 always feels in the way too, I want it simple & clean, bass>cable>amp. I would love that j + mm combo on a skyline, but the only thing that keeps me from getting one is the fact it's not the "best" of it's class (55/44-94) and it doesn't have a pickguard. Someone tell me to do it. Anyone here ever go from a passive jazz to an active Musicman as a main bass?
