I'm a student and I allocate pretty much all my cash which comes in irregularly to basses and gear. Next month is my birthday and I been saving up for a new bass. I can't spend 1000€ or more. But that's why I want your opinion on the new gear. I started playing on a 260€-Yamaha-PJ bass which plays suprisingly well (lightweight, no sharp edges and a fast neck but too slim for my big hands): So I swapped the PUs with Tonerider-ones and removed the middle blend pot to put in a 3-way toggle switch. I then got a 5-string (Ibanez SR705-TK) for 730€ which I hardly use because what I play doesn't need the B and so I never got used to it. I plays great though and I will eventually play it more often. I then felt like another 4-string which would be different to the one I got. I like the Fender J- and P-basses and since I knew what the P sounds like I was ready for a Jazz-bass. I got a Squier VM Jazz for 298€. I dind't have the cash for a more expensive Jazz-bass and I thought it would be OK because I didn't know if I would like the sound. I love the look of the instrument. I wanted to try the feel of the maple fretboard and I thought the maple body is something cool. I swapped the pickups for Tonerider ones and replaced the electronics with quality parts. Also got some cheap Chinese Jazz-bass-knobs for it. So that's where I am right now. Lately I've been GASing for this one: Ibanez ATK800-WNF (700€ I think it could be a great addition the lineup. Basically I want a affordable but quality 4-string for gigging with some new tonal options. I like the ash body and maple fretboard because I like a bright yet punchy sound. I also hear it's got a fat neck which I dig because I got big hands. What do you guys say? Good addition? Bad addition?
