Unsure whether I should do this...
I'm facing a slight dilemma at the moment.
I have a (piece-of-crap) MIM Jazz from 2001 atm, and when I say piece of crap I mean, the body's a bit scuffed (not road-worn but just a few bumps and scratches), and it has a dead spot on the fretboard between 14 and 17 on the D string only, and sometimes makes a really loud nasty farty sound, and the strings buzz like crap when I play it even a bit too hard (not just buzz though, they sound like they're in bad need of either the bathroom or a compressor). It's not AWFUL but It does need some paid improvement.
I'm looking for a more trebly sound with tons of growl, and I'm wondering if I should spend a few bucks to get this fixed up or exchange it for a Squier VM 70's Natural Jazz Bass.
So yeah, what should I do?
The deal might not go through at all, but I want to see your guys' opinions.
