    Hello all. I was wondering if a Squier Jazz Bass with a Leo Quan Badass Bridge II is a good buy for 300 dollars.

    What are your thoughts? Is this a good buy?

    I will be playign bluesy classic rock and I am looking for a jazz bass preferably.

    Is this bass used? Are you located in the USA? If so, that isn't even a good price for a new one. The new Squire Vintage Modified basses are very cool, and a new one can be had for less than $300.

    I just found a Fender squire "standard" jazz for a
    student of mine at Guitar Center for $206. on sale.
    For a low end bass, I was blown away. It took looking
    at three of them to find a good one, but a good one is
    a good one. I have a feeling the Vintage Squires are
    really good at the price point too, if you find a good one.

    If it's made in Japan, go for it. If not, you might want to keep looking.

    I tried the Fretless and man i thought it was sweet for under 300.00 does anyone know if a standard Squier jazz neck will fit this(fretted) or even an MIM neck..I think they are all the same. If so i'm buying one and swaping out the neck to have a cool looking fretted.

    Like everyhting i feel you found a crappy one. I tryed at least 6-8 and even the new fretless and they all sound great...no noise or bad dead spots i recall.I have found spectors, warwicks, geddy etc all over with problems its the store somethimes...sometimes the factory. Dirty strings sound like it was returned or played alot since it hit the self. Rip off ..no bass player mag rated them high also.
