Hey guys, I hope you are all doing well. I am currently planning on purchasing a relatively inexpensive secondary bass for our sets that are in alternate tunings. I have narrowed it down to two basses and would like input on which would be more appropriate for the tone I am seeking and the genre I play. The two basses I am trying to decide between are the Epiphone Thunderbird IV and the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz. Unfortunately, I live nowhere near a music store and cannot demo them. Also, I have watched countless video reviews on Youtube of each bass and still cannot decide. Thus, I seek your advice. I will be using this bass to perform hard rock and 90s alternative. The bass will be used with Hartke and Ampeg heads through a 90s Peavey TVX412 cab. I am seeking an aggressive, growly, dark, deep tone. I favor a bass with naturally present low mids. I am going for a heavy, "clunky" rock and roll kind of sound. I am in a band that plays originals and covers Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Ozzy Osbourne, and the like. I am aware with proper EQ and such I could achieve this tone with either bass - I am just interested to know if one will naturally do better than the other. I look forward to reading your input, thanks in advance!
