I was just going to introduce myself first. I am a 18 year old male from Sweden. I have played bass for four/five years (allthough I have only played "serious" for about a year and a half/two years). My previous metal band called Pherium (metallica/megadeth inspired) decided to throw in the towel about a month ago and I am starting a new band with a drummer I know. We will probably play power metal this time around. I currently play a Williams bass. My uncle helped me pick out a good beginners bass for me so it is a bit lighter than usuall basses and the "body" is a bit smaller. I like it alot but I recently graduated and got loads of money to buy a new bass for (of course I wont sell my first one). I am currently thinking about a BC Rich bass (warlock). For now it is only because of the cool look. From discussions I have read people seem to either love or hate those basses. I need some advice on this. I don´t want just "BC Rich rules" or "BC Rich sucks" replies. I want to know WHY you say that. As I said I am looking for a "cool" bass. The shape of the bass is important to me now (since I already own a "normal" bass). But the sound is of course important to. If you have any other advices for metal basses they are more than welcome to.
