    I want to buy a new bass and i can't decide between Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass and Ibanez GSR200l. I looked rewiev's of both basses and Squier has better rating than Ibanez and it seems to me that Squier is better in every point of view, so i need your thoughts and tips. In bend we play from rock to metal/heavy metal, like Metallica,Steppenwolf,Pantera,Ozzy ... so please your opinion on this . Thanks squier.jpg ibanez.jpg

    I would pick almost any bass over a GSR.

    Squier ten times out of ten.

    And what do you think Ibanez SR300 IPT instead of GSR200 ? I think SR300 is better choice...

    It's an easy choice for me. That left handed Ibanez would be too hard for me to play.

    The Squier is a good bet because it's easy to modify. Six months to a year from now you might want to put some quality pickups in it...Fender Super 55s for example.

    Easy to go active, too, with this.

    Mod your VM Jazz with this stuff, you might never want to sell your bass.

    Received a gift from Sire* (see sig)
    All I can say is Squier quality has improved a lot in the last 15 years, the ones I tried back then were uniformly crap. Then came CNC, I suppose.
