Sheldon (or anyone else for that matter) I need some clarification. With all the talk of new models and options, I need the record set straight on the SJ/SPJ/SP/etc basses. This is how I understand it now:

SJ - standard Super J with pg/solid colour. 4/5 string
SJC - Custom meaning rear routed, no pg, standard level wood top. 4/5 string
SJCE - Custom Exotic, same as custom with fancy top. 4/5 string
SPJ - same as SJ (or SJC/CE) with P pu in neck position. 4/5 string
SP - the new Super P as outlined in it's thread --> thin body, traditionally styled 5 string plus the new 4 string just announced.

Do I have it all correct? Did I hear about a SJZ or something like that? :S

Yesh, it's hard to keep up with all of this when you don't have money to buy all these new models. :(

And the model you introduced is the SPs4 then? I don't recall a satin SP. Do both SPs and SPz have the chrome "nameplate"? Are all Super P basses built in Canada? Both are available in 4 and 5 string? Sorry for all the q's, I'm just trying to wrap my head around this.

SPz (think ABZ) satin finished ash body. Gets a black headstock badge to match the black pickguard.

SPs (s is for Standard). Gets a mirror headstock badge.

All made in Canada.

At this time, are the Super P's are using the same necks as the Super J's?

IMHO the best of both worlds, as I never cottoned to the chunky Fender P neck.

That is one pretty blue bass.

I think to please everyone we'll have to have two necks. Currently it's the same dimensions as the SJ but I'll be drawing up one that's the same dimensions as the AB4.

Yes. I'm just talking about nut width and carve.

Thanks, Sheldon. It's good to have a choice. I can't tell much difference between my SJ4 and my AB4. They both are very comfortable. How much different are the two measurement wise?
