    hello.

    at last i am going to buy an new bass after my starter model.

    i am very drawn to the Ibanez BTB 670 but i don´t want to buy the first model i lay my fingers on.

    i tried some more at the music store in germany but those don´t actually feel as nice.

    do you guys have any suggestions around the 600-700 pricerange.

    thnx alot.

    Randy

    Hello Randy!

    I could suggest the Schecter Stiletto Studio. New it's around 700 bucks, you can get them for 500 or so on Ebay (used of course).

    Some other options are : Epiphone Thunderbird Pro IV, Spector Legend 4X Classic Series, Schecter Stiletto Elite.

    Maybe you will find something out for yourself :) Let me know what the decision is / was! Good luck on your search my friend :)

    Then, out of line as well, you could look for a Btb700 with Emg40 and VariMid electronics

    Otherwise, stayin' 35" scale but alder body with quilted maple top, bolt on 5 ply maple/walnut neck and active AlNiCo pickups
    Yamaha Trb1005j

    Cheers,

    when i tried to order my BTB 670 it was discontinued.
    the saleman forgot to tell me that the demo model was the last one they had.

    well after a long search i settled with a Ibanez SR 700 cn
