    1) try before you buy
    2) it's Squier, not Squire

  3. Yes, try before you buy. Quality control on squier can be a bit spotty. You may be more comfortable on a precision bass, they are a little wider.

    Constant state of flux
    Clearly your take away from this thread should be, it doesn't matter what you buy, but you damn well better spell Squire correctly.

    Is it too late to urge you trying an instrument before buying or perhaps it can’t be said enough?

    And you didn't. :D

    To the OP, anyone will tell you the Precision-type basses will give you better mid response. The two single-coil pickups on the Jazz-type basses usually scoop the mids.

  8. Check on a Fender. It would be worth saving a few $ and getting one. trust me,,,spoken from a previous Squier owner, will not be making excuses or convincing others that the squier is OK

    Ok so piling on here guys. I have a 1994 MIM Jazz Bass with a thin skinny neck that was fun back in the day but my late 40's arthritic linebacker hands do not like. I am looking to pull the Bartolini's out of it and put them in a jazz bass with a neck that is closer to the size and profile of my classic MM Stigray. I dont see myself doing a lot with this bass, I want something that is a Jazz bass and I dont want to pull the neck off of my '94 Jazz. Any suggestions I dont want to spend more than $500 on this. Help me!
