So, first let me say that it's been a little while since I posted here only because I forgot my password. But we're good now, as you can see. I currently play a Yamaha RBX 264, nothing special. Entry level 4 string with passive P pickups. It has been a great starter for me. I play it everyday, practice with my band with it twice a week, and just played gig with it on Sunday, it's holding up just fine. I like the bright sound of the J bass better and it's more fitting to the kind of music my band plays (Contemporary Rock/ Alternative). I recently found someone selling a Squier Affinity J Bass for $200, I was planning on offering $150. Ultimately I'm going after a Fender Aerodyne J but it's slightly out of my price range right now. My question is, it worth getting this bass if I can get the buyer down to $150? Or am I just in the early stages of GAS and getting to impatient to get the bass I want? I ask because I have no experience with the Squier Affinity basses. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks.
