I’m looking for some insight / advice. My son is 11. He wants to play bass. He already plays trombone. So, he has some basic music skills. He can read music / bass clef. This weekend, I took him to a local Guitar Center to check out basses. It was immediately obvious that a standard bass was too big for him. They had one short scale bass in stock. It was a Jackson bass. Looking it up now, it looks like it was a JS1X in silver. From a size perspective, this bass was fine. It fit him. From a style perspective, this bass was not fine. I could tell this was not the bass he envisioned playing. He wants a classic rock sort of vibe. But, it was great to find out that he’ll absolutely need a smaller bass. Since he’s a beginner, we are looking at cheaper basses. I had thought a used bass would make sense, but finding a used short scale that he likes is probably going to be a logistical nightmare. The bass he likes is a Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar SS. This seems to be a short scale bass. He likes the way it looks (which means he’ll be excited to play). I like the pricetag. But, I don’t seem to see it in stock anywhere close by. Ideally, I’d like to pick one up. But, I’m not easily seeing one in stock locally. That said, I don’t really know if there are any other shops besides Guitar Center to look at. I live outside Boston. Is this Squier a good choice for a beginner? Is this just an Amazon or Sweetwater order for me? Or should I have my son touch one of these before buying it?
