Iwant to buy a bass for my 14 year-old son to learn on. I am considering a MIM Standard Jazz V. It's 2 years old and in good condition. Is this a good choice and what would be a fair price? I'm also looking at a Peavey Minx-110 combo amp. I want a very mellow tone...no effects necessary, and don't want to hear a lot of noise form the fret board....just the bass tones. (I played a Bassman 60 and it sounded great) Am I dreaming?...help!
