    Hi,I've been promised a new bass for Xmas,yay,but I can only go to around £200(GBP);I think I have it narrowed down so I need your input,please!
    Squire Jaguar or Schecter SGR C4?Both brand new,or I also have the chance of a Schecter 004 Elite with set neck for £169!I know this guitar is about 10 years old but would it still be a viable option?It's in v.good general condition with a good action etc.I think they were about £500 new,
    so what do you think,guys?Any suggestions?Thanks Dave

    All good choices but if it does not have to be new, the Elite would be the superior value. All of my current basses are used and I love them all. Have a great Xmas!

    Don't ever concern yourself with the age of an electric guitar/bass, they rarely develop any problems due to age alone. My main bass will be 22 in January, still everybody who picks it up offers me money for it.

    Regarding your choices I would go with the Squier but that's purely because I don't get on with the looks of the Schecters. My other bass is a Squier and it's done a ton of gigs, they're really very good these days.

    if you can get the shecter go for it.those things are awesome. my next choice would be the squier vintage modified jaguar special.

    also age doesn't matter with guitars,it's condition.in fact the older the better.just ask anyone who owns a '51 precision bass.
