I bought my Squier Jazz about 3 years ago from a friends recommendation. I tried the American Fender Jazz, and chose the Squier over it. Being the curious person I am, I ordered a pair of EMG JVX's online from the States (I'm in Oz). Installed them have never turned back. I also own a Ibanez Soundgear 1205 which is a beautiful bass also that Ive owned for 20 years, but my main worker is the Squier! I play in a Chicago influenced blues/funk band here in Australia, and I do an average of 2 slap/funk solos a gig. I highly recommend the Squier Classic vibe and EMG's for the budget minded muso...I run through a Genz Shuttle 6.2 and an Ozzie made Celestion loaded 2 X12" 600 into 4Ohm
