Well...a week and a half after the purchase of my wonderful Ampeg...GAS has set in AGAIN. I have a Squier Affinity P-bass. Its ok. I do like the P-bass sound. But on this bass, the neck doesn't feel right, the tuners are...crap, and the electronics are noisy. There doesn't seem to be as much output from the Squier as there is from my MIM Jazz. Would there be more output from a MIM P than the Squier? Or is it just the nature of a P-bass to be quieter? The Fender necks always seemed to have been finished better and seem to fit my hands better. And if I got a MIM P, Id probably get it Midnight Blue to match my Jazz. Upgrading the Squier is completely out of the question. I don't want to. It's a new bass or nothing. Another thing I might look at is P/J combos. Ive played Squiers, which were...okay, and MIA Fenders which was wonderful. It was that transparent orange. Is there a MIM version? How is that? And are the MIM P's $384 now? I know the Jazzes are. Is there a reason for the increase? Sorry for the length of the post. I just have a lot of questions.
