hi, i can all ready play the bass sufficiantly well and am not looking to buy a starter guitar. I have looked at the Fender P-Bass and J-Bass and decided the J was better. There is also the American Jazz bass, but do you think it is worth paying that amount of money when i am only starting? Is it better in the long term? buying an expensive good quality bass instead of having to upgrade? or will there be a risk of if i get bored of playing it? and finally, would i be able to sell it off for the same price? . . This is quite similar to my other thread on the American Jazz bass but i wanted your opinion on the Financial side of it aswel.
