I've never understood why people can say a Jazz or T-40 sound like a Ric. They can growl till the cows come home, better than a Ric honestly... but the Ric has a punch that is all its own. The low end and high end of the Ric are both totally different so whatever pickup you use it doesn't sound anything like any other bass I know. The pickups are in different positions, the wood is different, the neck construction is different, the tailpiece is different... list goes on and on.
But then there's "the Ric sound" which is more imagined than real. And I believe Jazz or T-40 can handle that just fine...

My theory on why my T40 sounds the most like my Ric is pup position. When the T40 is in single coil mode (both tones all the way up), the coils that are active kinda line up with where the 4001's are (see below). You right about everything else being different but there is no other bass I've personally heard that gets as close. I'm told that the Ovation Magnum does but don't have any direct experience with it. I guess in theory it shouldn't but in real life it does.
After hearing the Fender Blacktop Jazz Bass, I'd also like to nominate that for a Rickish tone.
You can play a Fender Jazz finger style and still sound very close to Chris Squire. It's more about technique then the bass itself. I prefer My Jaguar when Jamming to Yes and Rush songs. I actually prefer to use My Ric for Blues.
