I've run the search ( 500 posts!) and gleaned a few recommenations, but if someone could lend an assist here... Looking for a PASSIVE 5 string, 35" scale, maple board. So far I see the J05's, but I'm not really into the Jazz sound at all ( I owned one, is the JO sound diff than say a 70-75 vintage J??)Played an MIM 5 jazz and really did not like the B string. An amateur player so the bill has to stay below a grand cause there's no way to earn it back around here especially doing original music. Also, slim-arse selection of basses around here. I bought my Skyline active 5 here from fretlessfiverfan - w/o ever playing a Skyline. Good thing I love it. But I see a passive bass in my future. Actives dont do it for me at all. Something I could find used or Ebay is fine since I beleive in old wood! Any names that jump out at you guys?? THNX! (may end up building my own - heck rebuilt a 30 yr old car should be able to do a bass ).
