I've been looking for a Super J 5. I have an older Super PJ 4 that has a small switch that by passes the preamp and lets me run all passive. How does the new Super J5 do this? I don't see a switch. I would also like to confirm the scale length on the B, and string spacing at the bridge. I believe it is 35" and 19mm respectively. Last, what is the weight on a natural alder Super J 5? I'm looking at the one at Jive Music, in VA. Any other Super J 5's in stock on the west coast, Pacific Northwest in particular? Thanks!

I belive it's a push/pull pot. The rest, I don't know. [quote="singlemalt":3it3aup8]I've been looking for a Super J 5.

Spacing at the bridge: 19mm Scale length: 35" - 32" (B - G) My SJ5 has the passive/active switch. The newer models might be a push/pull pot. My solid coloured alder body is in the 9 - 9.5 lb range. Each body will be different. Are you sure that it's not ash in natural?

Thanks, everybody. The push pull makes sense and looks clean. Yep, ash it is. That's what I meant but then I typed alder. I expect that to be a bit heavier, but I would still like to know what that would weigh. Any Super J 5 owners feel free to chime in with feedback.

I'm not an SJ5 owner, but I have played the natural SJ5 at Jive Sound and can attest to the fact that is indeed sweeeeet!. Give Jong a call; you won't regret it.

The bass you are referring to is 9 lbs 9 oz. The rest of the responses are right on the money. Thanks guys.
