I'm looking for a 4-string bass in the $600 dollar range that has a warm, mellow sound but with a small body. What do I mean by small? I consider the body size of the Fender P-basses to be too big for my taste
Any suggestions would be welcome, thank you.
I too play at chapel's functions (and with a thrash metal band and a rock cover band as well) but I do that with an AXL Mc Cartney's Violin, which is sort of an Epiphone Viola bass (same maple construction and sunburst finish, with V/V/T controls) but if you're goin' for a regular scale bass, even if small and
"polite lookin'" and soundin', I think an Ibanez Sr500m (maple) is the one you'll like
It's ridicoulously light and its Bartolini mk1 pickups and electronics are really the most mellow thing comin' to my mind in this very moment. Plus its walnut flat finish, on mahogany grain body, it's both fragile and scratchy (pay attention to it) and absolutely smart and classy
Less than $. 399.00 I really think
