    Well, here it is, the moment all three of you have been waiting for. Listed above are the modified Jazz basses that have been submitted by your fellow TBers. Check out the pics and specs below, and then vote on your favorite. Vote on aesthetics, the most mods, the least mods, coolest knobs, whatever. There are even a few with sound clips so you can be impressed by the tone. Pick the one you think is the keenest.

    The poll will be open until 1/5/02, and then we will see who the lucky winner is. The winner gets... um... let's see here... a congratulatory e-card, and bragging rights forever. 'Caues we're all such big braggers. ;)

    Here's the original thread wut dun started it all.

    Since I'm fair and impartial, plus I realize that bassmonkee's being in the race is unfair, I did the sensible thing and voted for Woodchuck's. :D

    " You know Ladies and Gentlemen, these are some of the finest Jazz basses that have ever been in one e-location at the same time. And furthermore..."

    Enough of that. Seriously, they all look good, but I voted for Tufnuts' warmoth machine because I've said it many times and I'll say it again: One pickup is all you need. ;)

    Happy New Year everybody.

    Try again. :D

    As it is, I have to give respect where respect is due, and I voted for PhilBiker's. pmkelly's was a close second. (But they really are all very nice basses. :):D)
