    Here are my two Squier 70's jazz basses. They are both wonderful instruments [​IMG]:)

    I changed the pickguards as you can see. I want opinions though. I will be going to a Canada Day Jam and which bass looks better to dress up for the occasion, the white or red?

    The red one clashes with the pick guard.

    Which one sounds better?

    About the same, and both are heavy as well :)

    The white, I think.
    The red one the red guard doesn't match the red of the bass.

    Now for a silly question. Why have you two of essentially the exact same bass?

    C’mon Oddly. I had more faith in you than this. Use your powers of observation.

    There is a black Jazz in his avatar as well.

    White pearloid on red Jazz body is the most classy, and still flies the colors. IMHO.

    Fair enough.
    That one may not be a Squier 70's Jazz, though.:)

    If you want a real Canadian bass it’s Dingwall - made in Saskatoon! They’re a serious contender for the best there is.

    Flag on white.

    The red bass isn’t nearly the proper red.

    I think the white bass works better with the flag.
