    OK, In my seach for my first personal bass (borrowing sucks) I have narrowed it down to these two:

    A MIM Fender Jazz, brand new for $450 (thats including taxes)


    A barely used, semi-perfect condition (I think the strings are in need of replacement) Ibanez RoadGear 500 for $298 (taxes included, string replacement not included).

    If you were in my postion (strapped for cash, trying desperately to save for a band trip) which would you choose, based on sound, reliability, fit in a school band, and value?

    Thanks for reading!
