Wow, James! That's a really nice find - looks totally original to me (although I'm no expert on Hard Punchers) .

It reminds me of the P Bass that Sid Vicious used to wave around (and sometimes ...

Wow! That's a beauty DDB - really !

I didn't even know that they made a JB85 FL in that colour. I've only ever seen the sunburst (Jaco ) ones.

Well, I've only owned three Jazz Sounds, but the biggest differentiating factor between them has been the weight - the lighter the bass, the deeper and more 'vintage' the tone!

Here are my three, f ...
