    Personally, I am a huge Fender Jazz Bass fan. I own two. A MIM fretless and a Geddy Lee Signature Model. However, I would stronly suggest you play all the basses you mentioned and find the one you like best.

    Good luck!
     
  6. if any of you havent seen the vintage like fieldys bass here it is
     
  7. I voted "other": a Fender Precision in another color scheme than the ones you listed, that is ;)

    Black with white guard, maybe?
     
  8. I said the Sunburst P-Bass because if I get another P-Bass that's the color I want. Hope we help you decide.
     
  9. I'd get the P-bass. It's the bass for all your musical needs. But definitely a differeny color scheme.
     
  10. Fender P or J, but I wouldn't get any in those colors.

    get a fender p. they're indistructible so you can play as hard as you want on it. but yeah, pick different colors cause......damn. get a black with black pickguard. my friend has one and it looks sweet.

    I say go For a P&J style bass
     
  13. My fav P-Bass I've seen lately is transparent red with the gold pickguard. I play a jazz myself. PJ might be the way to go. Actually that red one i've seen might be a hotrodded P, cant remember.

    i agree with ol dirty, go for a warwick. I used to play jazz basses, but then i bought a corvette fna...ooooo man, its so fast and sounds so amazing. thats just my opinion though, go with whatever feels good to you.

    riiiiiiiight:rolleyes:
    Fieldy has a signature Ibanez, I doubt that he would be playing Vintage but if he did it would really surprise me.
