I'm looking to tune down a bass to BEAD (or lower). I've got a Squier VM Jazz that I love, but isn't quite cutting it tuned that low. Of all my options, right now I'm entertaining the idea of upgrading it to a wenge neck from Warmoth for increased stability and rigidity, or just buying a new bass with 35" scale (maybe a 4 string BTB since those are coming back?). I like the tone of several wenge neck basses I've heard, and I like jazz basses... but is upgrading to a sturdier neck going to make as much difference as going to a 35" scale bass? Does anyone make a 35" scale jazz bass that's under $1000? Look forward to hearing some thoughts. Thanks in advance!
