Would a Fender Jazz player dig a Cliff Bordwell S-bass?

    With the exception of a couple of instruments, I've always played traditional, time-honored models of guitars and basses. My favorite bass being the Fender Jazz.

    I play lots of kinds of music, but gravitate towards r&b, classic rock with band and like to thumb about solo.

    Can anyone testify about moving from a Jazz to one of Cliff's basses? How'd it feel? How'd you sound? What did you gain or lose sound-wise? Is the character of the sound more hi-fi, or does the passive option allow you to get legitimate old-school sounds as well?

    I'm planning to email Mr. Bordwell to discuss some more details, but I thought with all of the knowledge and experience on this forum, I'd take a shot and ask for opinions first!
