    i just bought a Fender Precison Bass in sunburst....which looks amazing much better than i imagined as u can see the wood grain thru it which i didnt realise u could and it sounds amazing cant see why the americans are over twice the price maybe i just lucked out but well...i would really like to go into 5 strings and was looking at the squier as it had the proper headstock(hate the small tuning keys) what looks like a nice wide neck but it probably sounds really bad(ive only played 1 squier bass so i could easily be wrong i very often am) or could it be upgraded or should i just shell out for a fender mexi and ignore the headstock issue????

    p.s i also dont like active basses which sorta limits me alot
  2. I'd shoot for a MTD Kingston 5. IMO they're better than MIM Fenders and can be had used for in the neighborhood of 400, maybe less with smart shopping.
