    Fender. :smug:

    No, really, if I had $3K+ to spend on a Jazz:

    1-Sadowsky
    2-Alleva
    3-Lakland
    4-Lull.

    But Lull makes the most sense if you, like any normal person, are in a budget.

    Can't go wrong with either.
     
  6. Lull Modern 5s fit me like a old pair of worn-in shoes - perfect combo of neck size, string spacing, wood selection, a great pup/electronics package, great "modern" Jazz bass tone, and a downsized body for this smaller-than-average player. But that's for my needs: at this level they're all extremely high-quality instruments.

    ...but IMO, like lefty007 mentioned Lulls seem to have the best prices on the used market for some reason (this is balanced out by availability - you see far less for sale than Sadowsky IMO)

    Sadowsky, with Lakland close behind

    Though, I'll probably never be able to buy one because they are so much.

    If it were me, I'd go to the Fender Custom Shop. If I have to choose from your list, I'd choose Mike Lull.

    Toss up between the Sadowsky and the Alleva Coppolo - the rest are WAY behind. BTW, I own an Alleva Coppolo LG-5, Sadowsky 5-24, and an Lakland 55-94.

    IMHO, I'd put Celinder between the Alleva Coppolo/Sadowsky and the Lakland. But that is just my opinion.

    From what I've played and heard, I'd look into a Celinder or an Alleva. Lakland and Sadowsky don't measure up, IMHO.

    i'm suprised Lakland isn't getting more attention
     
  19. Sadowsky, but if you're on a budget, Lull. Valenti gets a lot of praise around these parts too.
     
  20. "i'm suprised Lakland isn't getting more attention"

    and I'm surprised these threads keep coming up.

    Oh, wait...I mean I'm not surprised.

    :smug:

    Seriously tho, how else wouldja know unless you played them? Or are you just looking for a general conscensus?

    If so, I'd say Lull. Every bit as good as you want and need it to be, and never too $$$$, as it needn't be.
