Im starting to be specific in what I want in a bass. I don't like maple fretboards. I specifically like rosewood, I really notice the difference. Big time. Also I like P basses and PJ basses exclusively. Not a fan of the jazz bass or the double humbucker thing. They sound cool when other people play them but not me. When I hear bass in my head it sounds like a p bass. Only bothers me because I look at a lot of basses and dont even want to try them much anymore purely based on minor specs. I love rics but they have maple fretboards so im not sure the 4003 is my dream bass anymore. Like wow.
