I've seen several posts here that refer to Johnson basses in a negative light, but I never seem to see any specific reasons given. What's wrong with them? I have a Johnson sixer, and I haven't found anything glaringly obvious yet. What have I missed? You won't hurt my feelings, as I bought this on a whim, as a beater, and to see if I would like a six, figuring on buying a better one at a later time. It looks good, feels good and sounds good. As far as my frame of reference goes, I've been playing for about 30 years, and currently own a Lakland Skyline 5501, Spector NS2000/4, Spector NS2000/5, MIM Fender Jazz w/ J-Retro pre, and a '72 Fender Jazz (not RI, I've owned this one since about '82), as well as this Johnson.
