(NOT the new U.S version with the chunky neck) So I'm in the market for a bass upgrade after 5 years with an old Squier Affinity P-bass. This one caught my eye after coming across numerous reviews praising its "fast neck" and nice, growly tone. The 3-tone sunburst model is really aesthetically pleasing as well. In any case, how does it fare as a cheaper alternative to upgrading to an American Standard? Are the reviews mostly hype? What are you thoughts/experiences with the bass? I'm planning a trip to check it out at my local dealer, so I'll definitely play before I buy if possible. Also, are there significant differences between the MIJ and the MIM as far as this model goes? Or is it just down to the individual piece? Thanks guys.
