Hello everybody, This is my first posting in this forum and I would like to pose a very important matter. I am a proud owner of a Squier Standard Jazz Bass (my first bass) and thinking about what my next bass will be. My dilemma seems to lie on the type of wood since my Squier happens to be quite heave on the shoulders. I am open to recomendations. My choices so far are the Fender Highway 1 Jazz Bass because it is USA made but somebody also pointed me towards the Cort A4 too. I play mostly funk and am looking a good sounding bass with narrow fretboard and easy to play.
