    That's why people keep saying "use the search function". It can save you a lot of time.

    I love it...P/J jazz bass with no pickguard...if only it was gonna be a decent price I would buy it. Although if I had the money for that bass I'd just assume get an Aerodyne, or a Jazz Special...someday I'll have them all :)

    Check the bridge on the Roscoe Beck5 model,is the best bridge fender used on any bass.
