    i know it sound like a stupid question :p but i can almost buy a fender classic jazz bass 1960, but for the same money i can get like 3 squier jazz basses :p so i'm wonderin if the diffirence is really worth the money when i'm only doin studio recordings with it. cause for the same money i can buy a squier jazz bass + another instrument. i'm not really a pro bass player, originally i;m a guitar player, i owned a 5 string bass guitar but i sold it cause the sound wasnt what i was lookin for (funk/soul).
    and when i read the reviews @ harmony central i see that a lot of people say the sound aint a very big diffirence. but i dont wanna go buy a squier, and in 6 months find out a fender jazz is much much better and have to buy it anyway.

    Tell you what.....buy them all, and I'll guarantee to take the '60 off your hands for what you paid for it. By the way, what's the asking price?

    Oh, well that changes things.

    Even so, assuming it's a MIJ reissue, I'm sure you'll like it better than the Squire by a mile. Better build quality, better electronics. I've never had one in my hands, but that seems to be the popular consensus here.

    Either way it will be better than the squire.

    And since you're going to be using it in the studio setting, the non-squire will have better sound.
