    Ok, I am steadily whitiling down my options for an SX. I have it down to a 5 string jazz copy, I want to hear in words and if possible, pictures, from those with SX jazz basses about how the blue and sunburst finshes look. I like sunburst, but I am woried that poorly matched woods will screw up the overall look, Also, I like the blue , but I want to know how good the blue looks up close, is it cheap looking or is it impressive? I welcome comments on the natural finish also, but I already have a natural finish jazz, so it's not high on my list.

    I got the blue one for my son, and it is a very noce color. It is more turquoise than lake placid blue, but it doesn't look cheap. This was my/our first SX bass, tho I do have an SX gtr and three Brice basses. I could have easily taken the J5 to a gig the night we got it. I tend to like the tighter spacing, so it was comfy for me. Sorry, no pics.

    Thanks for the info, has anyone else found the blue to be more turqoise-ish?
