I just got home from GC with my new Fender deluxe active jazz bass. I was originally looking at an Epi EB-3,but they didn't have any. I took my Peavey Milestone III to see what I could get for trade in.I paid $100 For the Peavey starter pack used and sold the amp for $50. They gave me $90 trade for it, so I made money from it.
I played about 10 different basses. it came down to the Fender or a Gretch electromatic juniur jet.I really didn't care for the short scale.I played the Fender through 3 different amps and loved the tone through all of them .
