I am somewhat of a beginner bass player, started about 5 years ago learned 7 Nations Army and quit, and just started again over a year ago. After playing my brothers old Barracuda J-Style bass which is falling apart (missing volume knob, broken nut, missing pick guard screws, missing jack screw, and a faulty jack) I'm looking to buy my first bass. After saving up some money I have enough to buy a 300 dollar bass, and I'm torn between a VM Jazz bass and a stree Fleabass. Any owners have anything to say about either basses? Both pros and cons? Thanks.
