I'm thinking about picking up a jazz bass. The new band is starting to get into more funk and jump blues type of stuff. I love my p-bass, just thinking a little brighter J might sound better for some of the stuff I'm gonna be playing. So here's my question for you guys. Which J-bass gives you a good bang for the buck (other than the american standards)? I've look into the highway ones, FSR's, new 70's classic, MIM standards. I'm gonna be on a limited budget. I considered an SX, but I really don't want another cheap guitar that I'll have to upgrade to be happy with. There are a ton of MIM standards around my area used. I think I would be able to pick one up for $250-300. Problem is I prefer a maple fingerboard, and the MIM's do not come in that option. Thanks in advance for your opinions.
