    Spiffy indeed. Not a great name for a bass company in my opinion.

    :p I agree, although they did manage to get a decent logo for the headstocks.

    I've played one like this (JJ) as well as one with a music man style pickup (MJ)... fresh out of the box at a store picking up the line... wanted my opinion. I thought they were fairly nice parts-wise, and had pretty nice tone, but were extremely poorly setup from the factory. We set up the MJ and it played and sounded great, so I'm pretty sure they can be great basses... especially for the money, but they should do a better job of final prep at the factory, IMHO. Electronics are pretty generic - no name brand stuff, but it works ok.

    I'd guess these are a-mark axes, with a MAP of 750 (msrp 1k), and since they aren't well known yet, prolly sell on the street for about 650 or maybe 700. For that kinda' money, I think I'd rather have a Lakland Skyline 55-01, though.
