I just spent $130 on a Jay Turser JTB-401. It is a copy of the '54 Precision bass. This bass is amazing. It came out of the box TUNED! The fit and finish is perfect. The frets are smooth with no high or sharp frets. That little ugly pickup shoots thunder! They must have been listening because the knobs are now metal. The body is so light that it tends to neck dive. People have said that a Badass II bridge will alleviate this. I spent over a grand on a Rickenbacker 4003 which I adore but to spend $130 and be happy is something that I never thought would happen! I didn't think they could send an empty box from China for $130!! If you're looking for a great sounding bass with the Sting '54 Precision vibe, check out the Jay Turser JTB-401B. The only thing I would have liked if the neck was a little chunkier..it seems a little thin but it still plays like a dream! If anyone has any experience with any of the other Jay Turser guitars I would love to hear about it. They have a gorgeous Tele model with a humbucker up front.
