I have seen that there is usually a good response to these types of questions, so i thought I would give it a try. I'm getting about $250 back for my tax refund. I have like no extra cash right now. I was wondering if any of you had some suggestions for a good all around bass in this price range. I was kind of leaning toward an OLP, but I also love the P-bass sound. Is it possible to get a P-bass sound out of an OLP. I have heard that they are pretty versitile. I have never sat down with one and tried it though. I also only want a 4 string. I would greatly appreciate any opinions or suggestions any of you have. You don't have to limit your responses to P-basses or OLPs. I'm very open to anything you have to say.
