well, i'm planning on studying in japan for a year and i plan on getting a laptop and an mbox2 to try and get into recording music on my free time while abroad. i want to get people's opinion on which bass i should bring. i own a fender MIM p-bass with a quarter pound pickup and bad ass II bridge. my second bass is a fender MIA jazz bass all stock. i love both basses, so its hard to decide. the jazz bass is the newest between the two so i would love to take it with me and because if im going to do some recording i can be more versitle in terms of tone. the p-bass though i love the action on it and also i kind of think maybe i should bring it since its a lot cheaper to replace in case i have an accident with my bass while abroad. to bad i dont have extra money to spend on a bass while there because i would pickup a MIJ p-bass which i plan to get later maybe once i get back in the states. i'm going to need all the money i have to live there for a year. so any thoughts on what bass you'd take in my shoes?
