Ive had my heart set on the squier for ages but Ive known two people with the schecter and Ive loved both(both the schecters ).
What Im thinkin also is it better to have a stick to a bass with a bigger neck(I currently play a jazz copy) so I can adapt easier to both if I have to or go for the comfort of a smaller neck
Also in terms of value which would be better,because if I could get the squier for a close price to the squier Id certainly consider it! The cheapest Ive seen the squier is £210 at soundslive but Im guessin the schecter is around £300
Any suggestions?

Yeah Ive played both,probablies played the schecter more and in fairness its probablies a better bass,but more expensive and i need a bass sooner rather than later.
How do the other stilleto 4's compare to the squier,I mean other peoples opinion of them.
Also like I said in terms of value which is better?

play both. the fanboy patrol is a group of people insistent on you joining them. resist just following play both. I have a Schecter too (Elite 5) but it really just depends what you plan to do, what you play, what kinda feel you want.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Yeah I really really like the schecter but Ive always played a jazz of some sort.
Ive seen upgrades people have done with the squier jazz and its impressive
I seen this video on youtube and that pretty much won it for me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTSN0gxD8fc&feature=related

If you're comfortable with the feel of the jazz and like the sound of it, you should get it. Plus it's cheaper.

Don't take that attitude. It's much more worth it in the long run to save up and get one good bass that will be worth keeping later on than to keep buying cheap ones. With that in mind, I'd choose the Schecter. Or, you could get a standard jazz bass. Another option, if you really prefer the look of the VM jazz, is get it and upgrade the electronics and bridge etc (especially the pickups). The advantage to that is that you can get an OK bass now and gradually upgrade it as you get more money.

im a scheter owner and fan but i will agree with you on the necks. its alot different if you are used to playing on a bigger neck. and there 4 strings are insanely tiny to me even though i play the 5 elite. if you fine with the neck and the price range isnt to much of a gap than get the scheter. if you dont really like the necks. you might get used to it or not. also it will last you a good while. for the squier i will say if you really like it and its not going to be your gigging bass or anything and you just want a bass that can get you the feel of a good one to practice.

Just remember that to an extent, Price=/=Quality, a lot of people say that the VM jazzes are better than the Fender standard Jazzes.

If you like the Schechter better then get the Schechter. Don't waste your money on a bass you don't actually want just because you can get a week or two sooner.
