Hey all, first post on Talkbass. I am in the market for a new bass, been looking to switch things up with the band I'm playing in. I currently play a Spear S1 34" 4 string with active pickups, which I have played for about 4 or 5 years. Lately, like I said before, I'm looking to switch things up and get a little weird, so I've been looking for a versatile, simple, and hopefully lightweight short scale bass with 1 or few pickups, preferably with simple volume and tone knobs since my current has a bunch of doo-hickie knobs that I find a pain to mess with. The band I play with is kind of off the wall, so I find myself playing anything from folk to punk, hitting genres like classic rock and funk in between somewhere. I mostly play just finger picking, but have developed my slap technique over the last 2 years so I want something that can hopefully grab those hot mids to mess with that, and maybe even use a pick here and there. Anyways, this has been a mouthful, but if anyone has suggestions feel free to throw them my way!
