    Although I posted an almost opposite question on the amp board, I'm now looking once again for a bass.

    My eyes are now set on an Ampeg BA-115 or B2...and I'm looking for a good bass to use for hard rock/metal type stuff. It needs to be in the 500 or below price range although. My first bass was a Squire P-Bass, and I'd like (Though wont limit myself to) something sort of familiar feeling. The sound can be totally different, but good for hard rock stuff as mentioned. I'm looking for 24 frets, something with great tone, and maybe something that could be good for slap. I'm not a huge fan of it, but I gotta please the crowds, and my P-Bass doesn't seem to be cutting it. If you have any reccommendations, they'd be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    P.S. I'd like to say that these forums have been very helpful, and I enjoy them.
