Can't decide which Bass I want.

by
On a tight budget, and I am looking at these three, I'm excited when I get one!


1) Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar

I'm REALLY leaning towards this one here, It's got the sounds of both Jazz and Presision! I've always been a fan of that mixture on Basses, It sounds great to me, via youtube video and IRL, The Jaguar sounds great. So I'm really counting on this one, but my cons are being scared I might not get a wide range of tones.

2) Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass

This may be a jazz bass, but it has a wide range of noises, which fumbles me on buying the Jaguar.... it's all Jazz and all Bass, no tremble. Hearing it via HQ youtube video,sounds great.

3) Epiphone Thunderbird IV

I've ALWAYS wanted a Thunderbird, and If I'm going to get a Thunderbird, it might as well be the PRO version, which is this guys big brother. it cost around $400-500 USD. So I'm not sure if I'm going to be getting this one, But I love it so much!

Epi basses lose to Fender basses every day - mostly because Fender put a LOT of money into bass research in the 60s, and Gibson neglected that part of the business.

My vote goes for the Vintage Modified Jazz Bass - i've wanted to get my hands on the 5-string version of that one myself. Go for it :D

Hmm with the J-bass I'm scared it might be TOOOOOOOO deep, low and bassy. Ugh its so hard to decide.

Nope - when I say that i've wanted one of those babies in my hands, I mean that I've tried one. Believe me, especially if you use the bridge pickup, that thing will have a LOT of brightness and power - the real Jazz Bass sound. It's almost up to Fender quality because the Vint. Mod series are...very well done and hand-finished, and the pickups on those, as I'm sure you already know, are designed by Seymour Duncan. Therefore, I'm pretty sure that if you get the J-Bass it won't sound "muffled" at all. Seymour Duncans never have ;D
