I got some pennies for Christmas from the wife to buy a bass and I'm just looking for a cheap beater to leave on a stand/let my daughter and son when he is older play. I'm a jazz bass guy and love anything Fender(even named my son Leo, I'm a fanboy and I know it). At the moment I've got two great jazz basses my old trusty Amstd, a CIJ 62 reissue as well as an active Ibanez SR300 which is also a beater but I'll probably be selling it the moment a pedal I want comes up cheap. Anyway these two basses are well in my price range and I can take my lady out to dinner with the change. I wanted a Pbass but I've also wanted a stingray forever and I remember being young and just starting out looking at the OLPs at the local music shop and wanting one but they don't seem to get favourable reviews around here so why? Are they good? Im spending about $100 on it and I really like the colour combo plus it comes with a hardcase and of the two it's the one I really like. The other option is a used SX Pbass they have at a local pawn shop it was what I was going to get originally and hopefully quench my evil thirst for P but then the OLP popped up for even cheaper. I know SX get some glowing reviews around here why? Are they really good? anyway let me know what you think.
