    For the purposes of recording only, which of these 2 basses would you choose. Please don't tell me to use a Precision or a Jazz...I'm trying to make a buying decision and these are the basses I'm considering.....and yes, I know that they are short scales.

    I've recorded a few songs with my Fender Mustang (not Squier) in my buddy's home studio and it sounded great. It sat in the mix very well and required almost no tweaking. I don't think a Squier will be much different than a Fender.

    I personally prefer the Mustang over the Gretsch.
    The Mustang is quite a good piece of gear for this price.
    I didn't like the Gretsch at all.

    What was it that you didn't like about the Gretsch? The tone (or lack of tone)? Something else?

    I would have thought that the Gretsch might be a bit more versatile, tonally, given that it has 2 pickups but maybe that's not the case....
