I haven't heard many good things about SX guitars, dunno about their basses though.
#3
no man id stay away from that, if your a rock guy, look at some ESP LTD's , you can find one in that price range that suits your style and is overall a better bass
#4
I'm looking at my SX right now...I got one of the last fretless P's they had. The fit-and-finish of the thing is amazing for the price. I can safely say that it matches my father's MIM Jazz.

That said, the factory definitely pushes a lot of instruments through, and there are definitely some that QC misses. If you get one, the guy that does customer service(Kurt) has an excellent reputation and should be willing to help.

About the bass itself, I think full-scale jags neck-dive a bit, but otherwise it should sound like a Jazz. Most SX's have thicker necks than the Fender counterparts, but they're not unmanageable at all. (though I do have fairly large hands)
Nope, no sig here.

I don't see the problem with it...what's the deal guys? These thing have a rather large following, even with very experienced players.

edit: And how many of you have actually played one?

I bought one of the P Basses they sell, and after a set up, it plays amazing in my opinion. Every member of my band, has complimented me on how nice the bass plays and sounds. And these are guys that have played the same bass Mastodon used to record on and have been in the band scene for a while. I love my Sx. It'll definately be my main bass for a while to come now.

My friend has the P + J SX bass. Awkward feeling neck, but better and more comfy than my BC Rich. The wood is stained almost to an ugly orange... but overall, it pretty decent.

not to be rude, but the only neck that doesn't feel worse than a BC Rich one is Dean.

Yea on TalkBass but not on this forum

To threadstarter: I'd reccomend a VM or CV Squier
Fender FSR Standard Jazz Bass(Sapphire Blue finish!!)
Squier VM TB Bass
Squier Precision Bass(heavily modified)
Behringer 180 Watt Combo<--My EQ pedal made this sound decent O_o until I get my Gallien-Krueger half stack

It's no Lakland, for sure, but the thing is better than any squier the TS is going to get short of a VM. Even then, it depends on which factory was having a good day. I honestly don't understand why there's such a strong opposition to these. They sound just fine, and the necks, thick though they may be, generally aren't any bigger than your average P bass. Is it the orange necks?

Besides, where else can he get a Jag like that within his budget?
Nope, no sig here.

^ that's very true. Also, though I've never played an SX, I can tell you they have a reputation for S*** electronics but quite decent wood. The "following among experienced players" a few people have mentioned is as a project bass, for reasons I just stated.

I'd get it. Have it set up professionally. Later you can upgrade the pickups, and end up with a quite decent instrument.

True, true...
It's almost time for a new one, though. First basses don't need to be good, they just need to play.

my opinion is to get the best sounding and feeling one available to you. in all situations. even if you are only spending 250, why waste it on a lesser instrument? if you can get a better one for you, why not?

no matter your budget, you don't want to just screw around with your money. you want to sound perfect.

Tis what i meant. Just that it doesn't need to be perfect. But why get a Civic when you can afford a Corvette?

^ i didn't buy my guitar. But yeah, that works. I think a fender would be even better...

Editskii: I do like the Ibanez, and it is very well priced. Plus, it has a sweet name!
