I've been thinking a lot lately about getting a bass just to tinker with and maybe to turn my son onto. Have even been considering short-scales. Just looking for recommendations on something entry-level to mid-level as I don't intend to play it out. Kinda leaning toward the Squire Jaguar SS. Lots of good reviews on that one, and there's a local one for sale for a good price.

The Fender Mustang may be up your alley, although there is a Squire model of the Mustang for less money. I have to play bass in church, so, not wanting to spend much money, I bought one of the Gretsch short scale basses (Jet 2?) with 2 pickups from Sweetwater for $300, and it works fine and plays pretty well.
I picked up a Squire Jazz for my youngest son at Christmas. Great Bass, plays great right out of the box. Just been playing it, no mods yet . . . .

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
