So I bought a Fender Standard Jazz Bass back in November for $420, and it's been pretty good to me.

However, this weekend, a local music store is having a sale on all items for its 40th Anniversary.

Fender American Jazz Bass's will only be $550 instead of the normal $1,299.

Should I spring for the American J? I have the funds, and I can probably sell my Standard J for some money as well.

Yes, American Fenders are such a huge jump in quality over the Mexican stuff.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

definately yes.

I'd definitely do the bass before the amp. Hell, at that discount, do both.

Agreed with salemboicot. Nothing wrong with improving your gear AND making a profit while doing it.

For that price i would buy two and sell one of them in a few months on ebay. Keep your Mexi unless you really need the cash. You can defret it and then you will have a sweet set up.

Sounds like a good idea. I second.

The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die

Buy it!!!! The americans are a HUGE jump in quality from the mexicans in my opinion and at 550 you would be stupid to say no.
