Defenatly a jazz bass if you ask me. Probably the red one the blue one is real ugly. but im not to fond on metallic colors on bass.

Well, tone is entirely subjective. Also, Squiers have quality control issues. Try the basses in person and then pick the one that sounds best to you. Some squiers are very nice instruments for the price. Others are dire, especially in the Affinity and Standard lines.

As tone is entirely subjective (no beginner instrument is going to sound great), and they are all of a similar standard, you should pick one based of feel. The necks of jazz and precision basses are very different. Some people are far more comfortable on one that the other, and this is how you should pick a first bass.

yea the necks are way different on a Jazz.

I like the P specials cuz they have 2 pups, (makes them sound more like a Jazz haha) they'll both sound pretty good. just get the least tacky colour. (the metallics can look a little cheap IMO)
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

i don't recommend the Affinity series, and if your gonna get a Squier, look at the Vintage Modified series. they are the best Squier has to offer.

I agree with you on that, but in this case the Squier P bass specials have the same neck as a Jazz bass, so the feel of the neck should be the same.

Out of them, I'd go with the P-Special.

What this man said.

Play the thing, don't just pick what other people want you to. Figure out which you like more, I bought a jazz, but Im wishing I had bought a P-bass, in fact I might go buy one today. In my opinion the jazz is to mellow for what I like to play, At the Drive-In, Sparta, etc. Just remember its your hard earned cash

Then save up for another few months and get the VM. It is far more likely to be a good bass. I was lucky with my affinity Jazz, in that it plays pretty well. I have also seen some that are absolutely foul. If you don't go and try a load out, and pick out the best one, you are likely to get a bass that could hamper your playing.
