Got my first bass last Friday! Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:
I'm primarily a guitarist but I have been looking for a bass to add to my collection. I'm a big fan of Switchfoot and I love Tim Foreman's playing. Last time I hung out with him, he was using an American Standard Jazz Bass in sunburst with a tort guard. Being 16, I don't have that kind of money.
I went into GC Oxnard and saw a Squier Vintage Modified Jazz bass with that same color configuration. Normally they go for $280 and this one was marked for $150 used. It looked brand new. Not a ding or scratch on it. Two piece body, Duncan Designed pickups. It was really loud and resonant unplugged and it sounded massive plugged in.
I brought it home with a Rumble 15 and I use a Danelectro OD Pedal with it for dirty tones and it sounds amazing!
Now for some pics:
