After reading reviews for about three months, and playing around, I took the plunge and ordered an SX jazz bass, with the ashtrays, and a sunburst finish. I am so jazzzed. I have been playing guitar for about 40 years, and messed around with a bass at church for a couple of years, but this is my first bass! I can hardly wait to get it and plug in? Thanks all, for all the help, and for answering so many newbie, stupid, I-don't-crap, questions.
