I'm looking for a little input regarding a new bass. There aren't a lot of stores in my area where I can try out instruments so I'm hoping to get a little feedback here. I have a Fender American Standard J w/ DiMarzio p'ups. I love the feel of the instrument but I was never crazy about the sound of it (the new p'ups helped but still not what I'd like). I also have a Musican Man Sterling 5 HH (the original made in USA version). I absolutely love the sound of this instrument. It's a bit of a beast though, as I'm not a big guy (and to be honest, I got the Sterling 5 over the Stingray 5 because it's a little smaller/lighter). If I could find a 4 string that felt more like the Fender but had the growl and thump of the Music Man, I'd be a happy guy. FWIW, I also have an MIJ fretless special w/ P bass body/J bass neck that feels equally nice and a Ric 4003 but that's a completely different sort of animal. Any thoughts are welcome. Oh, no rich recently deceased uncles to pay for this. I'd sell the J bass to finance a bunch of it. Thanks.
