Great threads! I m just getting back into bass playing and taking a more serious approach(being older seems to do that , eh?). I have always played a 1975 Fender p- Bass (ala Steve Harris)but am looking to expand into somehting new. I thought a 5 string would be a good starting point for different kinds of music and wondered if anyone had impressions on yamaha TRB models...or Laklands...or the Fender Jazz basses...AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I want them all!. I really would like a Sadowsky but have to put personal WANTS aside for the benefit of my young daughter... Yamahs look cool plus J.Patitucci plays them, are they good? What do they retail for? Thanks!
