Hi everyone...my g/f just bought me an acoustic bass as a present (wow), and I am now thinking of selling my 2 electric basses and purchasing a new electric bass. I need some advice on what to start looking for. I've been playing for about 15 years, but I haven't owned a wide variety of basses. I know, the selection is very individual, but I'm just looking for a general compass direction. Here are some details about my situation and what I'm looking for: - I need a 5-string - Bass sound I'd most love to have: Duff's from GNR/Velvet - price range is around $1000 USD (but I'm buying in Canada)...used or new is fine - I'm playing alot of 80s pop and hard rock, with some metal, gigging weekly - basses I know I don't like: Yamaha, Ibanez, any fretless - amp: Harke3500 OK folks...let's hear your suggestions! thanks very much!
