I know they look kind of odd but I have not seen one bad review for the Reverend Rumblefish basses. The PJ looks like it might be just what I want. http://www.reverenddirect.com/reverend/guitars_basses/rumblefish_pj.html Pbass tone Less weight Better neck feel If the reviews on Harmony Central are to believed the Reverend would be the perfect bass for a guy like me who is into old school sounds n music. You guys that play em, tell me what kind of tone you get. All I'm looking for is big fat booty, I don't slap and have little need for lots of high end. I like to use Ti flats and often play with my thumb to get a fat upright like tone. Right now I have a MiM Jazz but I want something with a lil more bottom end and less weight Its to bad I can't try one of these before making a decision on buying.
