I am 62 going on 63 and just taking up the Bass. I have a Squier VM 70 Jazz Bass that I haven’t been too successful with but after doing a lot of reading on TB if bought a Bronco and have really enjoyed playing around with it. I like all kinds of music from classic rock to Yanni but not too much of the punk, grunge, or metal type stuff. I can get these through the local GC or my preferred independent music store but they don’t carry them on the shelf and I don’t like to ask them to get them in just to see I might like one. I like to make an informed opinion before ordering even though I know I can return the instrument. Having worked in retail I try not to screw over the stores if I can help it. I am not one to get in to modding much and would rather just upgrade so I have been looking at doing just that. I see the Squier VM Jaguar Bass Special Short Scale seems real popular here but another one that has caught my eye is the Squier Mustang Short Scale. One looks alone I like the Mustang better but I never buy anything based on looks. So I am asking those who might have first hand experience with both Basses to please give their opinions on these instruments. Many thanks in advanced.
