Fender Jazz Bass
Advantages: neck doesnt go outta tune
Disadvantages: makes bass too tony
I hate to sound like a geek here but anyone looking to buy a good bass i reccomend a jazz bass in mexican range as it has american silent pick ups, and hasnt got a graphite neck which in my opinion makes the bass sound horrible because its so tony in my opinion a bass should sound like a jazz bass, warm and bassy.
My jazz bass was £550 and i wouldn't buy an american one just to get a graphite neck on it i think this bass is perfect and reccomend one to anyone who is thinking of buying one as i have a 3 band eq on it and unlike cheaper basses i have owned you can hear a difference in pick up and tone settings.
The only thing that some people may not like about fender basses is they have larger necks than any bass i have played but when you get used to it it is a lot better as you can play things faster and easier than with a thinner neck (though ive been playing 5 years now and have fairly strong hands)so try one before you buy, but in my opinion this bass was made in 1965 and still sells a lot that says something about the quality of it and all other Fender creations.
Summary: simply a perfect bass
