    IMO the SX would be a better bass, though there are some great Squiers and some horrible SX's.

    The question is, are you happy with your current bass?

    I agree... SX is muuuuuuuuuch better. I have a Squier P Bass too along with a SX Jazz(Came Yesterday!!)and IMO the SX just blows my Squier out of the water. The sound, construction, look, everything is just so much better. I really could'nt stand my Squier, the neck always got bent, the soldering joint kept coming undone, loose control knobs... I couldn't even play the thing through an amp for the past 6 months!! I am very happy with my SX and i say you should defiently go for it, because from my past experiance with the Squier P Bass along with one of close friends experiance with one, they will just fall apart on you over the years.
     
  5. SX man! The initial reaction from holding my SX is far superior than any Squier I've ever had in my hands. Squier's just feel like toys. I can't really think of a better way to explain it.

    The SX will be an improvement over the Squire (my SX Jazz feels better than any new Squire I have tried) - however, if you can wait a bit, save a little more, are willing to go with a used intrument and willing to spend some time looking in pawn shops, etc. - you may be able to make a bigger jump up in quality without spending a ton more money.
