There have been a lot of posts going both ways about Rondo's SX basses and Fender's Squier series. I'm in the market for a cheap, passive PJ and a cheap, fretless. Of course, whenever you mention cheap, Squier, SX, and other Rondo offerings come to mind. I'm wondering if anyone has done any sort of head-to-head with SX SPJ-62 and the Squier Standard P-Bass Special/ Special Edition (Special is in standard colors, SE is black with mirror guard). Counting shipping, the SX comes in at half the price of the Squier, yes, but let's push that from our minds. There is not a store within 500 miles of my town that stocks Squier, or Fender for that matter. I'm looking for a bass that can tak a medium-low to low string action. I'll get measurements of my current basses later and post for a comparison, cuz everyone's opinion is different. I want playability up and down the neck, right out of the box. Intonation and crappy strings I can fix, high frets I currently cannot. I know there's all sorts of back-and-forth about the bridges, tuners, pickups, pots, and all else involved in these 'budget basses.' Is there someone out there who has played, owned, or owns both SX and Squier, any models, that can chime in on which comes better from the factory?
