ok, i'm a beggining bass player and about to purchase my first bass. after a few days of research i stopped on those 2 models, squire was easy to find feedback about, but stagg not so much i asume it is less popular. the prices for both are very similar and i am not planning on spending more. the differences are minor, at least for me. stagg has two pick-ups j and p, but hell i'm not even sure what they are for. i heard that they make you sound slightly differently, but i figured one is precision another is jazz? or something among those line? i need a bass for a band my mates are starting, it will be aimed at punk/rock sort of music, however me myself i'm more into slipknot kind of music and would like to play that as well. so if you have advise on those two guitars, or may be another one in that sort of price range it will be appreciated, thnx!
