The time is nigh for my next bass purchase so I'm looking to get some input from you all who have more experience than I do. I currently own a Peavy Grind 4 that I use to gig. I'm not looking to necessarily upgrade rather just have a different option available to me. I've thus far narrowed it down to a few choices and here's what they are: a) Fender Standard PBass (maple neck) b) Squier Vintage Modified PBass however I would also purchase a different neck, probably a Mighty Might replacement neck. 1) I like a slimmer neck like on my Grind so a Jazz neck would be nice 2) I like the look of maple necks on PBasses much more than rosewood c) Kramer Disciple d) Sterling by Music Man S.U.B. Ray4. Like the PBass I love the look of maple necks on these type of basses. The only one offered with maple is the black but I'm not too fond of it. If I knew where I could get a pick guard in a different color I think that may make me think more seriously about this bass. Any input on these would be awesome. I'm not looking to buy used. The used market isn't great where I live and I don't much like the idea of buying something used over the internet where I can't see all the details and make sure it functions properly.
