Hello from Missouri. New guy here.
I have a question that I hope you guys and gals can help me with.
I quit playing gigs around 1990 and my son (22 years old now) has all my old gear. I haven't played bass in several years.
I would like to buy a bass for personal use only to go with a small 2x10 amp. I'm so far out of the loop, I don't know where to begin.
The nicest bass I ever had the opportunity to play was an Alembic that a friend of mine had when his band let my band set in for a few songs.
Another friend of mine had an SD Curlee bass I played quite a lot that sounded pretty awesome.
Is there a newer bass on the market that has similar sound charictoristics to an Alembic or the old Curlee, but with a lower price tag?
I don't have any plans to play live anymore but I would really like to have a great sounding bass like the ones I've mentioned from the past but I don't won't to spend a bunch of cash since I won't be making any $ in return.
