Im contemplating the purchase of another bass. I have a Squier P Bass and I play punk with a tiny bit of metal. I want to spend $300-400. A guitarist and I were arguing awhile ago. He says I should stay away from Fenders, and buy a Danelectro or Ibanez. Those 3 seem to have stuff in my pricerange and as of now Im leaning toward a Fender Jazz Bass. Or maybe a shoebox with rubber bands, which would be real cheap. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions?
