Whats up fellas?! New to the Bass forum. I play electric guitar, and I gig regularly, but am looking to buy a bass (new/used), preferably a Fender Jazz fairly inexpensive as I am going to learn bass. My question is... are bass players as anal as guitar players about where there bass was made. I know personally the tonal and playability differences between the Made in U.S.A. fender guitars from the Made In Mexico, or even the Made in Japan guitars. Are basses as distinguishable(*sp)? Can I get away with playing a cheaper bass, for now anyway?
