Hi talkbass, after lurking in this forum for a few weeks it's time to post. I'm an experienced drummer and a solid guitarrist looking for a cheap bass just for home recordings and rehearsals with my girlfriend, so, nothing "serious" at the moment. I've read a lot of nice things about this new line of squier basses so I think I'm going for one of these, but then I've noticed that there's two of them (well, actualy like 4 if you take the SS and the HB), the VM Jaguar and the VM Jaguar special. So, I want to know what's the main difference between these 2 besides the body material and of course, the price. I'm looking for sound differences and playability, and I'm asking this in a forum since I can't test the basses personally. Are the Duncan pickups worth the $100 difference? I could get a used MIM for ~$250 but some of the reviews/posts I've read say that these VM basses are in the "same level", and I'm not a fender-headstock-freak; I listen with my ears not with my eyes. tl;dr what's the difference between Squier VM Jaguar and Squier VM Jaguar Special basses? Thanks in advance.
