I'm thinking of picking up a practice bass to try different setup and sound options. I don't want to mess with the bass I regularly play with, for fear of jacking it up permanent style. I play 5, and am looking to start learning some slap technique. Anyone got a good reccomend for a cheap-o 5 that will accept some abuse, and produce some good slap sound/playability? I've thought about a MIM Jazz V, maybe a Rockbass, or Peavey (who put "flamed" tops on $200 basses ). I'd like to keep things under $400, and used or new makes no diference to me. Thoughts, comments, suggestions? P.
