    I'd go for the blocked & bound neck. I'm not a fan of the orange neck on those other 2. Looks like you get the HM bridge too.

    I have the SJB-75 NAT and play it more than my Modulus.

    I would definitely go with the limited. If the fretwork is a little better that alone makes up the cost. You also get Blocks and binding, better bridge, nicer tuners.

    I vote the first one - very similar to my 5-string SX...

    The 3rd one is the LTD model, which means it (supposedly) has better fretwork, as well as better tuners & bridge

    They're not too expensive... Start with #1 and work your way down over the next few months ;) You can never have too many SX basses!

    The orange finishes just look tacky to me. They really got it wrong on those.

    That kinda leaves the second and the third.

    Third one, that's a LTD.

    The last one is very similar to mine, minus the (LTD). I love the feel of the neck and it doesn't have that nasty tint that I dislike.

    The LTD will be better than the others by far.


    Unless you really dig doing the whole fix-up thing, the LTD is what I'd go with.
     
  13. Go for the 3rd or the first.

    I just plain don't like the 2nd one!

    ltd through and through my friend....i havent played or owned one but from what ive heard they give the standard j's a beatdown in quality and craftsmanship...and to get that outa something so minimally priced...def pay the extra and get it
     
  16. go for the LTD.

    i have the SJB-75 NAT (not an LTD). nicest neck i've ever played. pickups are phenomenal. i'm still in dire need of a good setup and a little fret buffing. still...it's light years ahead of any MIM i've played.

    Not always.

    I had an LTD fretless that had the most dreadful neck I've ever seen on any bass, ever.

    The components may be "upgraded" but I really don't believe it's much beyond that.
