I'm pretty impressed with the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz in natural finish. It seems to be one of those really good deals. Nice bass for $300-odd bucks. So now, I'm also looking for a Precision bass if roughly the same caliber. Same kinda money spent, and same general good impression. I Dirnt signature seems nice. I like the small headstock and the 50's pickguard coupled with the later pickup design (the 2x2). I'd jump on a Dirnt but I read one or two slams about overall quality. Were those flukes? I was fortunate to play the VM Jazz at a local shop, which was what set the hook. They have a few MIM Ps and MIAs, but they're out of my price range. So is there a particular model of P that I might take a look at that is as impressive as the VM Jazz in the same price range ($300 bucks or so)? How about that Dirnt? I'm into rock, progressive rock, fusion, and Pink Floyd-type oddness. I kinda like the wider neck of the P so that isn't an issue. Thanks.
