I have been saving up for a fender standard P bass and its about $500. But now I just saw a thread on the new squire vintage modified series and I looked em up on Musicians friend and they go for about $300. So my first question is which is the better buy. My second question is about the pickups on these. A lot of them are p/j pickups but I want a P bass so I was wondering is a p/j half the power of a precision and half the power of a Jazz bass?
