OK, I hate when i see threads like this, but I think I understand them a little better given my indecision on this subject. I am only interested in opinions with some sort of rationale, not in the usual "do what you want", "yes" or "no" answers. I have been holding on to my 1996 MIA Jazz V (from Fender's 50th anniversary year) because it is my only Fender (brother to 3 F-Basses and a Lakland Skyline P Bass). I keep telling myself I will play it at a gig again, but haven't in ~2 years. Every time I fool with it, especially with the Sadowsky preamp/DI, I remember how great it can sound. Except it is one-dimensional compared to my F's and when I A/B it with any of the other basses, it seems a little weak both in terms of playability and range of tone (well the Lakland Glaub tone is a narrow range, but it is just a new toy and may not last with me forever...). So, I could use the cash, and am thinking of selling it (along with the Sadowsky preamp/DI). The bass may some day be collectible, but I think not, so the only reason for holding on to it is sentiment - right? Can you guys come up with any creative reasons why I SHOULD (a)keep it, or (b)sell it?
