Right now my heart is set on the Warwick Corvette Standard 5-string. I played that along with a few other basses including Ibanez and Musicman but they didn't even compare. I was wondering if anyone could suggest some other choices in that price range that I should try that aren't at musiciansfriend.com. I'm looking for basses with the same kind of tight feel where I can slap with ease but still get a nice deep tone. Thanks for any replies.
