Reliable? Yep, IMO there's only one bass that's more reliable, a passive P-Bass (only because there's less to go wrong). As to good? Well, that's debatable, personally I like them, love the neck & the sound, but I generally prefer the extra tone shaping you get with actives.

Are you talking about the fender SQUIER jazz basses or the american jazz basses?
American made ones are very good and dependable for life. Squiers... not so much. Although the vintage modified squier jazz basses are quite nice. I like them better than the mexican made Fenders.

What?... Other than the 9 years before 1960 of Precision, and roughly 5 centuries of upright?

TS; there are many choices. Whatever feels and sounds right to you, will be right. Stick with a big brand (Squier, Ibanez, Yamaha, etc.,) with a good reputation, and you'll be fine.

I'd say both the squire and the Ibanez are the better ones up there. Try one of them to see which one you like better.

I voted for the Squier, especially if its a VM 70's one. Those are nice.

if you do get a squier get the VM 70's one.

So you aren't talking about a Fender Jazz your talking about a Squire Jazz, which is a cheaper version which, while made by Fender are not as good as any actual Fender Jazz Bass.

Also, is it supposed to be Metelman? I didn't think so.

Ibanez K5
Warwick Rockbass Vampyre 4

Line 6 Bass Pod XT Live
Epiphone Les Paul Custom

Get the Squier or the Ibanez. Both are nice basses and get a variety of tones. I'm fixing up my GSR200 and defretting it since it doesn't sound half bad.
