    i'm still shopping for my 1st bass-must be cheap!
    it's narrowed down to ibanez sr or srx 300, washburn xb120.but i'm also considering mim jazz or used mid 90's mij jazz(in good,not excellent)condition.
    any thoughts about quality,sound,durability,value of above choices would be appreciated.i don't want to buy mail order,though!

    If possible, I'd go with the Jazz. Note that you need to try multiple copies as each can have it's own unique flavor.
     
  3. MIJ Jazz. But that's just my taste....

    Why? Pretty well made and good sounding. I love Fender MIJ basses. Have yet to play a bad one.

    the mim jazz basses that i've played all have played very well for how inexpensive they are.
