    I'm thinking about getting my own! I play in my church's youth band. These days I go through one of those new Behringer DI Boxes with an OLP Stingray. Although it's fun and all, I was thinking of something a little more impressive. Which brings me to this:

    Fretless '62 Jazz Bass in Lake Placid Blue
    with shipping, roughly $140

    From Musician's Friend, I would then get pickup covers for both the neck and bridge as well as a tortoise shell pickguard.
    with shipping, roughly $60.

    $200 for a bass that looks nice and (hopefully) plays just as nice. In post-Christmas splurging, I also plan on getting a Behringer chorus and limiter enhancer. With the proper cables that would run me a little under $50. What do yall think? Would it be worth it?

    instead of buying a limiter enhancer/chorus i would take the SX and get it a nice fretjob, IMO its their weakpoint.

    Be careful with those pickguards, I heard they dont have the same number of screwholes as the fender ones. Look into it

    I made sure they did. Both have ten screw holes. If worse comes to worse, I can just drill another hole in. I'll be doing that anyways for the pickup covers.
