I'm looking to upgrade my bass at the moment and I finally decided on a Jazz bass. The issue is, I can't really afford an American Fender Jazz, so the cheap Mexican made model would seem most realistic for my purposes, however I have heard about this bass being compreble to an actual FENDER Jazz and it is also much cheaper.

I'm reluctant to purchase it because I know that Squier has issues with quality and craftsmanship. My first electric guitar (I switched to bass a while after) was a Squier and I can't exactly recall decent memories of it. I'm not very guitar savy in terms of hardware, and because I play mostly straight rock on bass, I've never really needed to be. I want the Jazz because of its versatility, but as I've said before, money is an issue. With that being said, do you guys feel that this bass would be a suitable option?

When I say upgrade, I mean in terms of having a low level bass, and wanting to move up to one that's more at my skill level. I'm pretty competent at Bass, but I've been playing on a starter's bass for a year now, and I what I'm looking for is a better instrument overall.

Plus any information from people who may have this actual bass itself would also be helpful. I'm sorry if this should have been posted in a different thread.

Play it if you have the chance, if it feels and sounds good to you, go for it!

Ok ya go for it its a good bass, rivaling MIMs. If you want a fender you can get one second hand for the same price.

They're on pretty similar levels in terms of build quality, but the tone is very different. The VM is a lot brighter due to it being all maple. While the MIM will be a little more mellow.

EDIT: How much do you have to spend on the amp?

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.
