New Bass Info

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by MycooLeeyun, Oct 27, 2009.


  1. I'm looking into a new bass and have been searching all of my options for a while now. I've been playing on a squier for a little over a year now and it has served me well. For a new bass, I was looking at a few different ones and was wondering if I could get some input from you guys. I was looking into a Fender MIA Jazz, MM Stingray 4H, G&L L-2000 and a Warwick Corvette possibly.

    Any advice on any of these basses would be awesome, thank you.

    Also, if you could recommend any others to look into, that would be great. I like a wide variety of tones when it comes to my playing but I really prefer a "fat and powerful one" if that makes sense. My biggest influence is flea.

    Thanks again

    MIA Jazz especially the 08+ models are fantastic. I love mine!

    based on said information i think youd be best suited with a stingray 4h, that being said , personal opinion is to get a Fender Jazz. when youre done sounding like your influence youll thank me :smug:

    You could find a used excellent condition Stingray for under $900. There's no need to buy one new and pay $1400.

    Buy used - whatever bass you decide. You'll save a bundle.

    Ive had two MIA standard Jazz Bass's, and I loved them. I got a great deal a month ago on a Squier deluxe active jazz and have fallen really hard for it. the quality is far beyond what i would expect from squier and it sounds great for what i play. look around, some times you will find something that will set you right without the price. and like Spinal Tapper said, buy used, you can get some great stuff, slightly used at some times half the price!

    Any of those would be great! I have no experience with the Warwick but I like the other three quite a bit. My next purchase is going to be a Jazz five string but that's only because I already have a L2000.

    The nice thing about the models you listed is that they are fairly common and shouldn't be too hard to find used.
