Dipping into the university money

  1. In a month or so im planing to dip into my university money and get a new bass. I haven't tried anything out yet but im thinking a fender jazz with active pups and electronics or a used f bass. What do you think would be my best choice. btw i plan on spending about 1000-2000 canadian.
  2. Lucky! The only I've managed to squeeze out of my school are free strings. Not bad, but not exactly a free bass.

    I'll recommend a PRS just because most people here will disagree with me :D
  3. i think he means the money he plans to spend as tuition... not a good idea, IMO...

    Shoot, with tuition being what it is these days, there must be a BIG chunk of money sitting there. If I were you, I'd go Lakland or Sadowsky.
  5. Well if thats the case, then I agree.

    As much as it pains me to say it, school is important.

  6. The money i have saved up is not even enought to cover 1/2 tuituon. It's not like i can eather spend the money i have on a bass or school. Im goin to take a year off between highschool and university to work full time. So that money is mine to spend on what ever i want
  7. Okay, I understand.

    Getting back on topic, you can't go wrong with a Fender Jazz.

    Get a Sadowsky. I think Laklands are ugly.

    I dont know, its just my opinion!

    Yeah Fender Jazzes are mighty good.

    Or if you have a lot of money get a Sadowsky

    2 bit,

    As long as this purchase will not undermine your educational future, may I suggest a used Alembic. The resale value on these basses are relatively low and you can get a lot of bass for the money.

    If you decide to go this route, make sure you get a model with the low pass filter.

    Best Wishes,

    surprised no one has mentioned it, Zon, you want durability, great tone, great bass for life, get a Zon(Modulus is good too though)
