I am thinking of getting a beater bass for outdoor gigs and such (I play a lot of campgrounds in the summer), and was thinking of a PJ (my two main basses are a Lull P4 and a 70s Fender Jazz with a P neck). My choices and concerns: 1. Ibanez Talman - read good things about them, but never used an active bass before. Also worried about the weight of an inexpensive mahogany instrument. 2. Squier VM Precision PJ - Don't like only solid finishes. Don't know about Agathis as a body wood. 3. Squier VM Jaguar - 1.5" neck is different than my other basses. Don't know about basswood. Any thoughts/suggestions?
