    I always told myself that I would never own more than three basses. Any more would be living in excess. Now I have five. :eyebrow:

    So, here's the newest member:

    And here's the family!

    From left to right:
    1. SX SJB-62 5-string
    2. Fender MIM Jazz w/ barts, new pickguard, jazz knobs, and a Gotoh bridge
    3. Fender Marcus Miller sig. (My main squeeze!)
    4. Fender H1 American P-Basss w/ new pickguard, bridge cover, and thumbrest
    5. Peavey Fury VI
  2. HMMMMMM. Is someone a Jazz bass fan? :)

    Nice family photo!

  5. Not yet, but I soon will (a copy at least, i can't afford $1000 for a MIM jazz) I fell in love with that growl and bite jazz's have about a week ago ...

    Got GAS?

    Although seeing that SX 5 banger makes the GAS worse, nice collection!

    I've never seen a 6er with only 20 frets, that sotra made me do a double take :eek:

    What kind of review would you give the SX? I'm in the market for a cheap backup 5 string Jazz, and I was think about that same model. What do you have to say about it?

    Nice. That SX fits right in with its Fender "cousins".

    Why yes, I do like jazz basses. :smug: I rationalize having three by pointing out that they all do different things. One four, one five, one fretless. (MIM)

    At the bridge it's roughly 17 mm from string to string. (11/16")

    Pretty good things, though I've only had it for a very short amount of time. I wrote a "first impressions" review in the Essex Mega-Thread I think that if you're willing to do your own setup and change the strings right away, you'll enjoy it. I was thinking about swapping out the pickups, but it sounds pretty good stock. For the price, about $150 shipped to my door, it would be pretty hard to beat. I sprung for some new knobs and a pickup cover, and it's a looker!

    My (in)famous Midnight Blue jazz bass. Under almost any stage lights, it looks purple. I've gotten a lot of crap for that. The black pearloid pickguard only makes it look darker, too, which doesn't help.
