    Does anyone out there know of any other companies besides Fender or Squier that makes a good vintage-styled jazz bass? I just found out today that Modulus has a jazz, and it looks pretty cool.


    Anyways, I'm kinda interested in just seeing what exists.

    I am only responding to this post because you have a cool name (Brent, not Valerus)

    Regards,

    SX probably makes a decent jazz bass because of all the positive reviews that get posted on here on TB. I am actually looking into buying a SX SJB-62CT jazz bass, or otherwise a SX fretless precision.

    If this is truly a new revelation, then be prepared.................there's an endless amount, it seems, of companies that reproduce what Leo Fender created as their own, and in some cases, take it to a whole new level that'll keep you searching the classified adds on this site. You might even say that the Pbass and Jbass design has become a standard for our relatively young instrument.

    I second an SX. They're less than $150 too.

    Your name sucks. :D
     
  11. Hmm. Like others have said: Sadowsky, Lakland, LEJ, Alleva Coppolo, F-bass*, Dingwall, SX, Lull, G&L, Fodera*, Pedulla*, Benevente*, Ken Smith Design, Nordstrand, Valenti, and a slew of others which I can't think of right now.


    Brands marked * are not true recreations, but are obviously based on a Jazz design.

    I expected to see Sadowsky and Lakland, but it looks like there are a lot of cool variations out there.

    I'm especially impressed by Clover's variation.

    And for the record, Brent is the greatest name ever.
    It's the best one-syllable name out there (except in Virginia where people tend to stretch it out around three syllables).
