I have decided to buy a bass. Budget £400- 450ish, am drawn to Squier models, currently looking excitedly at a Squier CV Jag. Intrigued by Mustang but wondering if short scale might feel a bit fiddly (I am a substantial slab of bloke at around 6’3 and broad in the beam).
Wildcard is a 50s CV Precision, this bloke’s review of it is pretty tempting and it looks stunning
I am veering towards the Jag as it blends P and J pickups, and review videos balance out the joys of these configurations in one package vs fiddly ‘stack’ controls.
A bass playing friend has recommended I go for a “proper” bass [his words] and just get a Jazz bass.
Any Fender bassists here who could give me any tips? I know it is not possible to physically try one out at the moment, I just want something with a lovely fat, rich soft tone which is approachable for a guitarist (Fender Jazzmaster) to learn on.
