Normally I hate bursts but that one is rather nice.
Burst is beautiful....
You need to have more confidence in your decision making. Which one do you like best?
I just picked up a black and maple Japanese Geddy Lee which I'll post a NBD once I finish modifying/fixing it, and I hafta partially agree:
My personal preference:
That’s not “Antique Sunburst.” It’s “Mistake Sunburst.”
Black on black with maple for me.
You are picking between three bass3s - three different quality levels and prices, blind, and price is your only deciding factor?
I looked at the 40th anniversary Squiers. I change my vote to seafoam.
But folks seem to like those 40th basses. Excited to see what ya get!
In general I like classic looks, white, black, aged (ivory, parchment, mint green), natural wood (including certain sunbursts).
My first choice is the black/white Fender Player. I already have a white/mint Player precision (that I had no trouble choosing).
I included the black Squier Affinity because it’s 1/3 the price and plays and sounds fine. The Player precision is my mainstay.
The Squier sunburst, part of the new 40th Anniversary series, is oddly intriguing and unusual but unpopular and not much discussed. I describe it as antique, solemn and dignified.
+1 for black/maple.
Your best bet is to play them first because how the play and sound is more important than how they look.
They all sound similar, they’re pretty much the same bass. The Fender Player might have a barely audible added depth and richness to the tone, and possibly other details that can come to light with time and use. But I’m not a professional, Squiers are excellent instruments, and I already have a Player precision (and a Squier CV 50s single coil p bass, and Epiphone Embassy).
Hard to beat the black/maple combo!
The comments definitely lean that way, but the vote is evenly split, with the «ugly» burst leading. Looks like people are ashamed to say so .
No contest, the middle one.
Makes Fender bursts look boring.
stripes, stickers, 3 pickups, and 5 strings ... that's how I like my jazz bass
That 2 tone sunburst looks pretty evil to me.
Won’t be taken lightly coming from you .
It's like the painter got word halfway through the job it was to be sunburst.
not a fan at all of the satin burst.
If you like all the colors but can't play them in person...
go with the one that seems like its in the best condition, has the straightest neck, doesn't have a stripped truss rod nut, and weighs less than 9 lbs.
