hi everyone, i'm a new player looking to learn how to play the bass. i'd like some input on these 2 basses that i'm looking to buy. just for some background, i find that i really like the sound of a p-bass, and would wish to get something that either has pj pickups or something that can sound like it. i would also prefer a bass that's on the lighter side as well. i'm looking for something that can last me at least 5 years and more. i have narrowed down my choices to these 2 basses as they're within my budget - the squier vintage modified precision pj and the ibanez sr300e. i have tried the ibanez in store a few months back, it had a nice light body and a thin neck too but it didn't really "click" immediately with me, perhaps i will need to go back and try it again to really see if i like it or not. as for the squier, i did not get to try it in store so i do not have much experience with it, however it seems like the squier vm basses are quite popular and has better upgradability than the ibanez. it also has the pj pickups which i feel like are overall easier to understand and control than ibanez's active eq controls. however, i'm not sure if it's still in stock as it seems to be out of stock everywhere and i'm not sure if it will be back in stock any time soon either. would appreciate your opinions on these basses, or feel free to recommend something in a similar price range. thanks!
