I currently have a short scale Ibanez bass with an active pickup. It is okay but I want a full scale bass and something that doesn't look as bad.
So I'm thinking a Precision Bass. I've played Jazz bases quite a bit, they always seem big and round sounding. The impression I get is Precisions are a bit more focused and a bit harder sounding, probably less Jazz/soul and more suitable for funk?
Anyway, assuming this is broadly correct, what would be good to look at on a budget. Squire affinity series, or perhaps a classic vibe? Budget around £250, either new or 2nd hand.
Also, pickups, are the squire pickups reasonable? I only really know about guitar pickups, for example, the classic vibe ones are pretty good, but some of the Mexican ceramics are not great.
Another option is starting a partscaster build and buying the bits as I can afford them.
