    I like that Jazz also. I had a few Am. Std. Jazzes in that configuration myself.

    If it had pearl dots or pearloid block inlays on maple it would look amazing.

    Almost a cross between the AC Jazz, or the USA GL Jazz. Either features would look good.

    I really do like the Pearl block inlays from the USA GL Jazz. I'm still not up on the Mint Green PG's on the Am. Pro.'s.

    How is a Pro different from a Std.?

    Different neck shape(with narrow frets), upgraded pickups & machine heads. I think they look great. Haven't had the chance to play one but if they are like or better than the MIA Standards, I would buy one sight unseen knowing I'm getting a great axe.

  16. I had no intention of buying an AmPro -- until I played one. There definitely are substantive differences from the AmStd (also fine basses), mostly in terms of the neck. I don't need a number, but I'm digging my rosewood Olympic White AmPro P.

    Let's just say "different pickups" :D
     
  18. Why in brackets?
    I'd like to see the difference between they V-mods and the 4th gen. installed on my Am. Elite P bass ...

    Confused by your question. Quotations? Because that's how you punctuate that sentence in this language.
