    My BHPD has laid dormant for over a year now, without any impulse purchases (at least bass related, I did buy a roadster ;) ). I have come to an agreement with my other half, with which I agree (that's why it's an agreement!), which is that I have enough basses and that I must get rid of 1 before adding 1.

    That brings me to my current GAS, upgrading my Jazz Bass. I have a Squier VM Jazz fretless (which is fine) and a Jack&Danny fretted that is not so fine. I have upgraded pickups, hardware, strings, setups and more, but I still can't get to like this bass. I can't pinpoint the issues that I don't like, I just cant seem to click with it like others that I own.

    So, I want to upgrade and I really like the idea of a maple fingerboard to save me from CITES :D No, seriously, I don't own a bass with a maple board and I think it's time I did!!

    Please post your Jazz basses with maple boards to see what makes me drool!

    MTD Norm Stockton Saratoga. Maybe not quite the jazz bass you had in mind... But it is Mike Tobias take on a jazz. :D
    And it has a maple board.

    Unless it's a 70's style with block inlays, a maple fretboard on a jazz bass just doesn't seem natural to me.
