Hey everyone. Well I'm saving up some for a decent bass, but I'm a man who loves a budget. I want to get the best possible bang for my buck, because my funds are constantly quite low. I've looked at the Modern Player series by Fender and the Classic Vibe series by Squier. The Modern Player Jazz Bass I was looking at was around 450 - that is quite pricy for me, considering I have heard that the Modern Players are almost identical to the Squiers in terms of quality, and the only difference is the name on the headstock. I'm considering buying a used Classic Vibe or Vintage Mod. Precision, and doing a few upgrades like - Fender / Seymour Duncan Pickup - Changing the headstock decal & neckplate for Fender ones (I have a chip on my shoulder But obviously I'll have no intention of ever selling it as a Fender, it's just cosmetic.) - Locking tuners - Maybe a new bridge. I reckon I'll have a nice, professional looking and sounding bass for a lot cheaper than it would be to buy a MIM p-bass, and also cheaper than buying a Modern Player. I've heard really good things about the Squier Classic Vibe 60's Precisions - most people reckon they sound as good-as, and some people reckon they sound better than a Precision MIM Standard. Opinions?
