    Hi Folks, I need your knowledge for a future buy!

    I seriously GAS about a medium-scale jazz because I tremendously like both passive jazz basses and medium scale basses.

    Ideally I'd want a medium-scale neck on a full-sized '75 JB body but I know that is not likely to exist and I definitely don't have enough money to have one built for me ;)

    I'll pull the trigger soon but I would like to know all my available options before doing so and I have tremendous difficulties finding 32" Jazz basses

    So far I have found these :
    - Fender MIJ JB-62M
    - Fender MIJ Aerodyne AJB-M
    - SX Ursa Medium Scale
    - Greco Super Sound (Medium Scale)
    - Warmoth medium scale jazz

    Know any other? (whether still produced or not matters little)
  2. I just pulled the trigger on a brand new Fender Aerodyne Jazz bass (it's actually a p/j bass). I am in the middle of finals right now but I had to take about an hour when it arrived and I can tell you that it is now the best passive instrument I own. I got it hooked up to a GK 410MBX which is being pushed by an Ampeg PF 500. In the one hour that I have on it I cannot complain and the only defect (if you want to call it that) is the finish is easy to smudge and needs to be wiped down but it's a small price to pay for a fantastic bass.

    Most Alembics can be had in 32" scale. Or the 1st gen. Urge Bass.
