Okay, so here's my issue. I have a TBC AP500 M. Very pretty bass and lightweight. I like it, but am not real comfortable with the string spacing around the nut. Just a bit tighter than I like. Found a MIM Fender Jazz Deluxe Five (2006) in really nice condition. The TBC has always had a bit of buzz and I could probably help it a lot by doing some shielding. The biggest issue is that I usually have to play sitting down and I find the neck just a bit wide and I have to twist my wrist a bit more than I like to get the A at the 10th fret on the B-string. It also doesn't give me any tones that my G&L Tribute L2500 doesn't give me. There is no issue getting the A on the B-string with the G&L The Fender is a jazz with active electronics and does give me some tones the G&L doesn't cover as easily. String spacing is more like a four string and I do like that down around the nut. Buuut....the TBC is probably more unique and I think it is far better looking. Any thoughts, fellow TB'ers?
