Hey Everybody, This is my first post here! I'm excited to be able to learn from all of you more experienced bassists out there. But anyways. I've been playing bass for about 3 years, and want to upgrade to a new bass that will last me for a long while. Price isn't too much of a worry, but I don't really want to spend over 3000. I slap quite a bit, and was wondering what basses you'd recommend me. I just tried out the Ibanez BTB series and liked what it had to offer, but couldn't help but wonder how well it's made/if I should just save for a Warwick or something similar. I had a J bass awhile back, but I like the tonal options of the active pickup realm. I should also mention I'm very into natural wood finishes. Any help is appreciated guys.
