    Hola, necesito comprar un bajo de 5 cuerdas, de bajo costo.
    Cual de estos 2 bajos es mejor?

    -Jackson JS3V
    -Fender squier deluxe 5 strings

    ambos cuestan lo mismo.
    Me gusta todo tipo de musica, he tocado desde metal y rock de todo tipo hasta musica salsa.
    Lo que busco es una buena cuerda low B y buenos agudos para slap.

    Muchas gracias.

    I like my Silver JS3V. I don't know anything about Fender.

    I'm much better in English, by the way.

    Opt for Squier Active Deluxe V

    It's a particularly modern Jazz bass in basswood (that's better than Indian cedro, on Jackson JS3) with a somewhat "chunky" neck (I'd love it for heavy or downtuning purposes) ebonol fingerboard (a composite resin, dark and smooth like ebony, just, ok... Cheaper) three band equalizer and a midscoop switch suitable for slap.
    Of course electronics it's upgradable and many smart fellow TBers already did great jobs on that, yet Squier Active Deluxe V is proficient stock too

    My €. 0,02

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    I don't know anything about the Jackson, however, I have owned a Squier Jazz 5 Active since 2009.

    Although I own a some more expensive basses, the Squier has become my main-go-to bass. I don't plan to modify, upgrade or otherwise change my Squier. It is fine as it is.

    If I ever buy another bass, I will choose Squier again for my next bass, as well.

    I owned a Jackson CMG which is similar enough to the JS3 series in my opinion, I think Squier would be slightly more reliable as I've owned a couple of those before as well. The Jackson looks cooler and has a lot of good sounds, but I think the Squier is a bit more ergonomic and versatile in sound
