First let me state that I am new to the bass, but not to music. I have been playing saxophone in all types of groups for 8-9 years now. Bass has always been a favorite instrument of mine but I never had the chance to pick it up.
Well a few weeks ago a friend of mine came to me needing a computer badly (I build them for a hobby/living) All he had to offer me was a Fretless Jay-turser P-bass. So I took the trade. Being an EE/CE student I just hand built a practice amp but I quickly found out that starting out on a fretless is like buying a unicycle wanting to learn how to ride a bike! But I am hooked on learning the instrument.
So enough about the past.
I am looking for a good all-around bass to play on. Some more string-oriented friends of mine took me to Guitar Center and I was able to try out several.
I am liking the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz bass now, but I wanted to get more opinions. What do you think, comments/suggestions/rantings? Squier® Guitars by Fender®: The Official Website
