Hi All- I've been a lurker here for a while. This is my first post on this forum, (I'm over at MyLesPaul a bit as well) Question for the evening (or the next 3 hrs anyway lol) I'm torn between one of these GFS J Bass style kits http://www.guitarfetish.com/Super-LIghtweight-Vintage-Cut-JAZZ-Bass-kit-COMPLETE_p_2070.html Or a Basic Squier J Bass from local store for $150 I've crafted from scratch a few of my own guitars over the years as time and work load have allowed, so I'm not new to sanding, fitting, drilling, setting, finishing, and set up. It's something I really enjoy doing. When I saw these kits for around $120 it really seemed like a fun winter project. But a brand new squier with a warranty, pretty good set up at the store, for a few dollars more.... I've had a few basses over the years, kept my Ibanez SR505 the longest (loved that damn thing!!) but I've never had a J bass. Found a Wenge control plate in my parts bin a while back (where did that come rom???) and I have a DiMarzio J Bass Bridge pup hanging out as well What would you go for and why??
