It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.

I'd have to say go for the Yamaha as well but make sure you play both through your amp or an amp just like yours or as close as possible before you put any money down.

Well these basses are different, Squier one is and J-style bass, with single pickups, and Yamaha has humbuckers? I suggest you try them both. I would say yamaha has less bass, as long as I know, but that Squier is sounding thin to me. I would choose Yamaha since it's more easier to play and to practice, and sound could prove better with better pickups. Try and see what kind of tone your prefer.
