I'm looking for a decent but not overly expensive ($800-$1200) 6 string bass for a jazz fusion project I'm involved in. I regularly play Sandberb, Suhr and Sadowsky so I'm used to high end, boutique instruments and so I'm wanting something that I will actually play. So far I've found little in that price range and right now I'm looking at Ibanez basses, in particular the BTB846SC and the BTB846V (the V interests me because it's a 33" scale with 16.5 spacing but I love the shape of the SC). I have beginning issues with arthritis so wide necks or baseball bat necks don't work for me, I need something thin. Anyone have experience with the basses above or have other suggestions?
