Hi, (First of all, pardon my English, I'm French) I am actually trying to choose which bass is going to be my first in America. I was the owner of a squier vm jazz bass back in France, for what I remember (I haven't play for 2 years) I liked it except that my E string was buzzy, I must have had a bad one. For what I've read now I'm thinking about: -g&L l2000 tribute -squier classic vibe jazz bass They are both around 300$ but I'll have to drive 2 hours if I choose the g&l. My influences are Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller, but because of my low level I can't play them yet so I will be more likely playing queen, muse, rhcp... If you have any idea of better basses for this range of price, let me know. Thank you !
