  1. Hey guys. Im lookin around at the mo for a new bass. I woz just wondering what you people thought? I woz thinkin either a Musicman Stingray 4, or a Fender Jazz Bass A-series. Over here the Fender costs less, by about oh £300, but will be willing to stump up the cash. Just interested in what you had to say, should I go with the cheaper Fender, or save for the Musicman? :confused:

    What kind of music do you play?? They are both great basses, but they are also two different animals, IMHO. Personally, I prefer the Stingray over the Fender Jazz, but that is just my personal preference.

    Try them both, which one sounds/feels better to you?? Buy the one that does.
     
  3. I play stuff from Jazz to Rock. I have to admit, the Stingray DID feel good. The only thing is the money, (£900-1200), it'll just take a while I guess. Being a student... patience is a virtue an all that...
