    Well, not brand new, but new to me. I'm not asking for much, just an American series olympic white or sunburst P or J with a rosewood board in decent condition. Of course I looked on the 'bay, but it's harder than I imagined. People are selling everything but these combinations.

    *SIGH*........I think I'm getting chest pains......... :scowl:

    Have you checked out importing a CIJ '70's Reissue from Ishibashi. They do Oly white with a black pickguard and rosewood fretboard right around $700 shipped and they're phenominal instruments.

    No, I haven't. Just can't bring myself to consider anything other than a MIA.

    You should really check them out, they're phenominal. My #1 bass is a CIJ Marcus Miller Jazz, just ahead of my MIA P-Bass.

    Gotta love Olympic white, good choice. Make it a '75 jazz with chrome bridge and pu covers and a red tort pickguard and you have an incredibly pretty bass. Sure the covers get in the way but who cares when it looks so good :D. Can always take em off to play.
     
  7. I played a spector legend 4 string today with PJ pickups and fell in love with it. I just love the PJ tone, but the only way to get one is to sell or trade in my MIM jazz, which is also a very sweet bass to play although it could really use new pickups. but im really gasn for it. I need to do something with my money or gc will get it. :crying:

    or should I go for a sx and get new emgs and eq. i dont know what to do :bawl: :bawl: :bawl:
     
  8. Yup. That is my next bass.
