Hey all i'm a Tenor Sax player and i love it, but i would like to start playing bass since my friends need a bassist i told them i would join. We will be mostly playing 60s and 70s classic rock and some jazz so i would like a bass to suit that status. My limit is about 250 for a bass and 150ish for a amp... I've heard the sx basses are good but there kind of a hit or miss... also im really short so i might need a short scale bass, but i don't want to lose any tone, so does short scale deprive of any "punch" from the bass? Thanks ahead for any comments.
