    This is my first Xotic, and I have absolutely fallen in love. My "super jazz" of choice over the others I've tried. I would like to have a five string version of it, so if anyone is interested in swapping an Xotic 5 for a 4 let me know. I'm also open to other brands--I like Sadowsky, Lull, Nordstrand, Valenti, etc. It just needs to be quite lightweight, and preferably with 34" scale.

    This one is nice and light (8.7lbs or so), with the Fralin pickups and the ability to split the coil on the neck pickup and give yourself sort of a P bass sound as well. Kind of like having a P and a J in one instrument. It has the original version of the 18v preamp.

    I also have a black pickguard (on it right now) and I can get some other pictures up soon.

    Yes, there's nothing I don't like about this bass. I just have some dates coming up with Mike Stern, and I happen to be without a five string at the moment. I trust the consistency of Xotic enough to go for a trade.

    I realize this might be a little too specific, so, while Xotic would be my first choice, the main point is that I'm going for lightweight 5 string jazz. So I've updated the thread to indicate such. Light and 34" scale would be great, 24 frets is a bonus, 35" is not out of the question.
