High, glad to find the forum. After not playing bass since 1981, my interest is back. I played an Electra "violin" bass back then in a couple bands. Now, I am back and decided to buy a Squier JBass (used). Totally disappointed!!! Hums, rings, rattles. Had my luthier look at it, he said "JUNK". I do have 20amp Hartke Combo I like. What is one of the best values out there for a good new or used bass? I like playing stuff like Rush, Police, 80's punk and contemporary gospel. I have NO idea what I am buying anymore. Thanks!
