In the near future I will add a 5 string (low b) to my collection and my budget is at about 2k. If I found the right bass, I could go higher. My current bass gear is as follows: Warwick Corvette standard fretless 4 Warwick Corvette $$ 4 Boss obd-3 Fulltone bass drive (I will have a Choralflange soon) Radial JDI, J48 and bassbone I want to play things like hard rock for the most part with the 5 string, just to give you an idea of what I want to do with it. Live playing, not recording. Since I like my Warwicks, the obvious thing to do is to get a Warwick Corvette 5. But then in the back of my head I am still wondering what else out there I would like. My preferances: -Bolt on neck -Fretted -Passive pickup(s) -Solid body -Made somewhere other than an Asian country or some other sweat shop -Single coil pickup(s) -The bass must NOT say Fender, Gibson or Ibanez -I must be able to find a hardshell case for it Thats all I can think of at the moment to describe what I want. Any ideas as to what bass to look into? Thanks!
