Which would you choose for a cheepie?
I have been very pleased with my SX.
I Second that
If you are near a city with lots of stores, Squier because you can go to the stores, play a bunch of used and new ones and cherry pick the best one for you. I voted Squier for this reason. If you live near Rondo, SX or are definately going mail order, SX.
Good bass, great price.
Belive or not I own one of each. Both the SX and the Rogue beat the squier hands down with the only possible exception being the hardware (bridge/tuners).
i picked SX, though i've only ever played a Squier. i am pleased with the Squier for what is, but just cuz every seems to recommend SXs, i'll stick with them.
sx or squier, the rogues i've played are not very good.
rogue - a toy
squire - too much clunkiness
sx - feels good right off, a few mods and wow
I have actually played a lot of really good squires which have amazing action, but I have also played some which feel terrible. I love my SX and even though the set up on mine isn't amazing it is still a wonderful bass for the price.
SX all the way
I have been playing a Squire (Japan) for almost 20 years... Upgraded it as it broke and as sweet as an American. I would love to try an SX. If they had funkier body styles (Explorer, BC Rich etc) I would buy one. SX are very well thought of on the board however the upgrades (Hardware, Electronics) seem to happen with SX as well. I would save the $ and buy something you won't have to upgrade in 6 months.
Sx... or a good squier if you can find one at a shop.
I like this SX fretless jazz bass. I want it!
SX by a mile.
SX...Make it your own!
SX, no contest. But if you want something that DOESN'T emulate a Fender, get an OLP Musicman copy.
Heh, that's basically an abbreviated form of what I planned to write. No competition here, IMO.
Actually, I am gonna break the poll here and say ibanez GSR200. That is what was recommended to me when I started, and I got one. It was a fantastic bass. Excellent tone. VERY playable neck. It was also pretty cheap at 180. I understand you can get them for a lot less.
If you can't do that, SX. Squier are overpriced for the quality. I haven't tried the Rogues.
You will have to spend a couple more bucks but do a little searching on the used market and find a Tribute by G&L L-2000. You will find it to be much more versatile than either Rogue, SX, or Squier, and unlike those three, you won't have to upgrade the pickups, as it already has the American G&L MFD humbuckers. Check out G&L's web site.
BTW, someone also mentioned the OLP. All four (OLP, Rogue, SX, and Squier) have something in common. They are all clones of guitars designed by Leo. G&L is the real deal!
Guitars by Leo...
Good luck wichever route you choose.
