Probably a common issue here - I know what amp I want to get, which I need much more than I need a new bass, but I've found a bass for a couple hundred less than the amp that I absolutely fell in love with, and is basically exactly what I've been hoping for in my next bass. I need a new amp to play at church (we have one that is sufficient, but it's not really that good), so I want to buy a Carvin BX500 head with a Carvin 410 cab to bring to church when I play so I can actually sound good. The amp at church is an old 200W SWR that I don't like at all, and my amp at home is an Acoustic B20 that I don't care fore, and certainly isn't powerful enough to play at church. Now, along comes the Brice Defiant 6, from Rondo Music. My amp setup would be altogether around $800, and this bass is $599. I've been looking for a pretty-looking 6'er with a rosewood fretboard, and hey! There it is! And I'll have enough for the bass before I have enough for the amp. GAH! Quite the predicament... not sure which I should go for. I've got a good amp accessible at school whenever I need it, and a... well, a working amp at church to use. However, I also have a nice bass (Sterling Ray34), though it's not the 6-string with rosewood fretboard I've been looking for... poop!
