Dear TalkBass users, About a week or two ago I made a thread asking for opinions on a new $500 bass. I have no preference as to whether it is new or used, or if it is Precision or Jazz because both work for my band (we just formed and are starting to experiment, but trying to go for old Black Key sounding songs) So far I have found a $499 Sterling MM Ray 34 which as of right now I am inclined to buy. My next option was a MIM fender blacktop P. So I am wondering if you have come across any Bang for Buck guitars worth buying! Also, I do not care when it was made, actually the older it is the more I like it, however that is not a concern at all, only an added bonus! Cheers!
