Ok, I just sold a bass and now have "just" one left. My one and only now is a Tokai Jazzsound from 1982, which I love to death. It's the best jazz bass i've ever played. But now I have some money from the sold bass and I want to buy a new backup. The last jazz I bought was ok, but everytime I a/b'd it with my Tokai I didn't like the sound of the other jazz. On it's own it sounded decent, but in comparison to the tokai it sounded compressed, thinny and dull. Now I have played a squier vintage modified jazz bass and I liked it very much and it's within my budget (Squier costs 300 here and I have 350). I'm afraid though that I like the squier on it's own, but I'm going to have the same problem as with my previous jazz. So what do you think I should do: 1. Buy the VM squier. It will stand up against my Tokai. 2. Save up some more and buy another second hand japanese bass from the 80s that will have the same quality for sure. 3. Save up even more and buy a new Japanese Fender. What do you think? I'm curious!
