    Well, I've been playing my Squier P/j (Dimarzio pickups) for quite some time. I love it, but I think its time to move on.

    I've figured the Cirrus 4 (USA) would make a big difference.
    It did.
    To big a difference.
    It felt like to much of a "spaceship" to me. The sound was incredible, but to modern for the music I play (Rock, blues, funk, jazz).

    I think I should go with passive electronics, bolt-on, and either P/J or J/J configuration.

    Budget is about 800 (what I've paid for the Cirrus)...

    What do you think?

    I recommend a Fender Reggie Hamilton Jazz Standard. It is a great P/J bass that can be played as either active or passive and they can be had for around $880.

    I LOVE my Cowpoke with Bartolinis (it's a MIM 94 Fender P-Bass Special). Slightly extended neck, and a great tone. They don't make 'em new, but if you can find a used on in a pawn shop or eBay, they're great basses for the money.

    Well, the Cirrus is gone.
    Now its time to revive this thread.
    What do you say?
    Passive, probably P/J, around $800 used or new.

    Also, any good bass stores in Phoenix?

    Get a Fender Jaguar. They're around $700 and can be active or passive. They're really chameleonic and can do almost any tone. Great vintage thump with all the switches on and the tone rolled back a bit.
     
  10. +1. The custom MIA version (blue) is beautiful.
