I've been playing for about a year, my current set up is a '01 Squire Jazz through a Peavy Basic 50. In the next couple of months ill have some money coming my way. I don't know if i should look at different amp, up-grade my bass, or look at a new bass. If i look for a new amp ill probly look for a 200-400 watt head and a 2x10 cab or something. I like the feel of my bass, but the pick-ups arn't the best. I was thinking i could upgrade to active electronics. As for a new bass i would like to get a fretless or 5 string, standard MIM fender or Yahama BB searies. Right now im starting to jam with some friends, and i know a guitarist that wants to do some Hendrix covers. Im mostly into playing blues, hendrix ect. What do you think would be the best thing for me to do at this point, i'll have about $600 + the possible trade of my squire.
