  1. Really tripping over my Sanberg TT4 lately to the point where I sold my Power Jazz Bass, if you have them, show them !

    I guess for now, my Fender Urge is filling that need.

  6. This one is opposite of what you’re looking for.
    It’s Jazz bass-shaped, but doesn’t have Jazz bass pickups.

    Unless I'm reading your thread title incorrectly, this qualifies.

    '63 Burns of London Vista Sonic - this med-scale model evolved into what was rebadged the 'Jazz Bass'. Bridge and middle pu are in the same general location as a Fender Jazz.

    If by "J Bass" you mean "two single coil pickups", then I have three that aren't "really" JBs but are, sorta.

    First is this German-made Warwick Katana NT:

    Second is my Dingwall Combustion with a pair of Nordstrand Big Singles:


    And lastly is this (now defretted) Kiesel Icon 5 with Radium single coils.

    My SB5000 is a Jazz Bass that isn't a Jazz Bass.

  15. Here's my Jazz that's not-a-jazz. It totally nails the essence of a Jazz Bass though. It's a G&L tribute neck I picked up from the TB classifieds. I modified the heel so the fretboard overhangs the body a little so it would work correctly with the Fender spec body. Hip Shot ultra light tuners, Custom Shop pickups and series V-V-T wiring (yes, series wiring that you can blend). It kills!

    The only jazz bass I’ll ever own. (Middle)

  17. Rbass SCJ5. This thing does jazz bass better than any jazz bass I've ever played.

    It's always cool to see something from Mississippi in a foreign country. :D
