Played my friend's Squier Affinty P-bass and love the tone of it, and my current bass can't even compare so I'm thinking about buying it. However I can't decide if I should buy a Squier soon, or wait for awhile and buy a real Fender. OR should I hold out even longer to buy a Sterling Ray 34. Also I'm only 15 and still trying to find a job, so money is an issue at the moment. Bottom line, buy a Squier P-bass and be able to play with the tone I like right away, wait to get a real Fender and get a higher quality P-bass, or wait even longer to get a Sterling Ray 34 (Which to me has the same thump as the P-bass, but with more tone controls).
