I have been playing Bass for two years now, and I was looking high and low on affordable Bass guitars for the coming year and I noticed the Squier Affinity Jazz Bass which I instantly loved. At $280 I thought was really cheap for such a Bass that get's rave reviews over, and I'd be able to get it before the year is over for sure. But then I browsed more and found a Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass for $450. Being $170 more than the former I was wondering if it's really worth the extra money? That also means waiting past the new year just to rack up some more cash. With this SX Bass I've had for a little over a year, it's getting to be "broken down". I definitely want to up the ante a bit. It's clear to see that the latter is better, I've seen videos and reviews of it and such and it looks like the Bass for me. But before that I thought the same with the Affinity. It probably doesn't seem like that much more money wise but for my dad, that's a different story.
