Only the sound of a JB

    I recently played a Fender Marcus Miller Jazz Bass and although I have been dodging them up till now, I kinda fell for their sound.

    Whether its the feel or I am just a snob, but I don't really like the Jazz Bass shape. Nor Fender, nor any other make (Lull, Sadowsky, Skyline).

    My question is how do I get a jazz bass sound without the look? Is it possible? The most obvious answer is to go custom (if so, who to work with?), but I am also interested in what brands offer similar sound but different design.

    Thanks all
