thinking of buying a bass. maybe spend a few hundred bucks. dont mind used, have actually been look at ibanez sr models as far as used goes and squier vintage modified jaguar special interests me for 200 bucks. im mostly into metal but i also listen to others types of music. i might just use amplitube 3 or guitar rig for a bass amp, or just grab some used bass amp with a 12 inch speaker. there are some affordable sr800s i was looking at for like 200-250. any help or thought would be helpful. in the midwest, usa btw, thanks again.

another question i had is whats the difference between the squier troy sanders jaguar and the vintage modified special jaguar. is it worth $100 difference?

Both Ibanez SR and Squier VM are basses that people usually recommend in that price range. I would suggest trying both and also listening to their sound. Pick the one that feels better in your hands/sounds better. I would guess the Ibanez has more variety of sounds. But the Squier may sound a bit more "classic" and I would also guess it's more simple than the Ibanez (more plug in and play kind of a bass).

I don't know about the differences between the Troy Sanders signature and the regular one. I checked the specs and they looked pretty similar. What makes the signature model more expensive is most likely the fact that it's a signature model.

Also, going used will get you a better bass for a cheaper price.
