    I manufacture for several companies including but not limited to: Bridge City Sound, Catalinbread, more.
    I just got an ARIA pro2 rsb deluxe for 100 bucks on CL. Bought a brass nut, slotted it and BLAMMO!!! sounds fantastic.

    Easy question!

    Squier VM or and Old Peavey T-40 (if your back can handle it!).

    Alternatively, a MIM Fender P or J used CL/eBay special.
  12. Simple squier classic vibe , yes there 350$ but there is no reason you should have to pay the there are two P's in the classfieds for like 250$ and one J for about the same price DAMN good bass for the money.

    You can get one new for 300$ if you just look a bit.
  13. The Gretsch 2202 still shows in the Guitar Center website at $249. The single pickup is quite hot, and it sounds MUCH bigger than it is. Definitely high output for a passive bass. Finish and hardware are also very good quality and solid.

    Best of both passive worlds .. Fury + Foudnation

    or Dyna.
  17. to quote steve albini "i dont know if you know of the peavy t-40 but they weigh as much as a fridge so i ended up wering it around my waist... with peavey they never sound good... theres a upper limit ov awesomeness that they cant reach but the s*!t ALWAYS works, you could find a peavy at the bottom of a lake and all you would have to do is towel it off and it will work fine"

    That's easy: the Yamaha BB800 in the classifieds right now. No contest.

    Wait, it seems to be gone now. Not surprised.
