For Recording: Squier VM Mustang vs Gretsch Junior Jet G2220

  1. For the purposes of recording only, which of these 2 basses would you choose. Please don't tell me to use a Precision or a Jazz...I'm trying to make a buying decision and these are the basses I'm considering.....and yes, I know that they are short scales.

    I've recorded a few songs with my Fender Mustang (not Squier) in my buddy's home studio and it sounded great. It sat in the mix very well and required almost no tweaking. I don't think a Squier will be much different than a Fender.
  3. I personally prefer the Mustang over the Gretsch.
    The Mustang is quite a good piece of gear for this price.
    I didn't like the Gretsch at all.

    Mustangs are great and pretty versitile, thats my vote
  5. What was it that you didn't like about the Gretsch? The tone (or lack of tone)? Something else?
  6. I would have thought that the Gretsch might be a bit more versatile, tonally, given that it has 2 pickups but maybe that's not the case....
  7. :cool: Anyone else? There must be a few more of you who have recorded one or both of these basses at some point..
