Hey guys I plan to spend no more than 10% of my playing time on a bass and don't have a ton of cash to buy a brand new american elite jazz bass. I have seen some amazing transformation videos in Mexican strats that have good pickups to start with, but just needed some minor tweaks like bridge saddle replacement and round off some fretboard/fret edges. For that reason, I'm currently on the fence between a Squier Jazz Bass (like a Contemporary model) or a Standard MiM Jazz bass. I'm looking for a satin finished back neck, "a-ok" pickups and unfinished fretboard (like rosewood or pau ferro) and "a-ok" tuners/bridge. I know the price differences vary quite a bit between MiM and Squier, so I was wondering if someone can help me decide between spending $250-$350 on a used squier bass or just spending a couple hundred more in a MiM one... I wanted to understand why it would be worth it... if at all.
