Bought this just under two years ago. After playing bass in my 2nd League of Rock Experience (won that in a contest too), I thought should get one. This one cost me $200 used. I use it to noodle on once in a while. Bass is fun. I got a little Ampeg BA-108 to go along with it for $100 used with an Eminence Alpha 8 replacement speaker. I like the profile of the J-Bass neck - small hands appreciate it.

I used to have a VM Jag.
I like the build quality.
I currently own a G&L Jazz and a Squier PJ.
I like the neck action on them too.

I had a vm jazz from someone on here. Upgraded pickups and a gig bag. It was a rock machine - sold it to one of the bass players of the last band.

Everybody should a least have a Jazz bass !!! :cool:
I get by with an old Japanese P-bass copy in my jam room. Kind of the Kraft Dinner of bass guitars for rock/blues bands. I'd love a Jazz too, but if I could only have one ........ most bass players seem very comfortable on that P-bass.

I have a squier 3/4 scale jaguar bass. Retails for $280 or so new. Got mine for $150 with amp patch and after market gig bag! It's fabulous. I will be changing the pickups.

I do like the separate volumes in the middle position. Increases the pallet dramatically.

Bass is for serious musicians. Rock on.

I got my Unicord P-bass copy for less than $100 about 40 years ago. And I nearly got fired for the opportunism. LOL

You dont have to sell me on Japan made Basses... they are some of my favorites. A jazz bass neck is just slimmer and more confortable for most user not use to playing on a P bass...

If thats an old Univox, you got a great P bass !!! :cool:
Yea, Unicord or Univox. I think they were similar / the same anyways. Mid 70s and an outstanding copy. I've never done a thing to it, just play it and lend it to others when playing at my place. That's why I've never really pursued a Jazz - while I love them, that money could be put towards more 6 stringers. LOL
